Enthusiastically On Board: Essential Elements of a High-performing Board at Yoakum Community Hospital, Yoakum, TX

The Situation

Yoakum Community Hospital serves as a model of positive CEO-board relations, but establishing this level of board engagement did not happen overnight. CEO Karen Barber has led the 25-bed critical access hospital in rural Texas to a status worthy of national recognition, with strategic direction from an engaged, effective board of trustees. Barber says she feels “fortunate” to be backed by a high-performing board, but it was her own efforts along with the trustees’ that put all the elements in place for the exemplary board Yoakum has today.
