Policy Governance Model
St. Joseph’s at Fleming has a twelve member volunteer Board of Directors whose membership includes people from a wide range of professions and experiences. The insight and wisdom they bring is invaluable in ensuring the Home follows its mission, vision and values. Our Board is unique in that it follows a Policy Governance Model of management. This model is a ‘hands-off’ approach to governance in which the responsibility for the day to day operations of the Home is left entirely with the CEO. Nevertheless, CEO accountability and monitoring is accomplished through performance indicators, regular reports and quality updates to the Board Committees and the Board itself.
The role of this committee is to develop and review Board policies related to Governance and monitor Board compliance with its own polices.
Quality Assurance & Risk Management Committee
The role of this committee is to review and monitor Board policies related to quality of care, services and programs; and to receive reports from the CEO regarding quality.
The role of this committee is to ensure that the Board has all the information required to assess the financial viability of the organization and to ensure that the Home exercises proper stewardship of the available resources.
