Lorain County Health & Dentistry has a proud history and an exciting future. The organization is well-positioned to provide a full range of primary and preventive health care services, of the highest quality, to vulnerable persons of all ages, meeting local need for many, many years to come.


An individual from the community who works and/or lives in Lorain County and is interested in being considered to serve on the governing Board of Directors at LCH&D. Expertise in healthcare is NOT a requirement; an individual with business/finance skills, a retiree, a pastor or minister, or a community member who has familiarity with local need would be well suited to our Board.


All governance responsibilities typical of a director at a non-profit organization, including meeting attendance and participation; strategic planning; setting direction, financial oversight and other board member duties typical of a director at a Federally Qualified Health Center.


This Board meets monthly on the 3rd Tuesday from 5 PM to 6:30 PM. Location is the main Lorain County Health & Dentistry building located at 1205 Broadway, Lorain, OH 44052.

Monthly attendance is required as is participation in at least one Board Committee (Finance, Quality/Planning, Nominating/By-Laws).

Finance Committee meets monthly – all other committees meet quarterly.

  • Term of office for a member of LCH&D’s Board is 3 years. This role is voluntary.
  • The LCH&D Board is a stable one, as is the organization.
  • 51% of directors must also be consumers of service at LCH&D, so either a medical, dental or optometry patient. However, becoming a patient is not a requirement of the open seat we are now seeking to fill.
  • The process to become a director starts with an application and is followed by an interview, including with members of the Nominating Committee.

Lorain County Health & Dentistry is high functioning community health center with an engaged Board, strong leadership and compassionate staff who desire to make a difference in the community’s health. LCH&D is a productive and high energy organization.
