Board of Commissioners
In 1956, the people of Natchitoches Parish passed a special property tax to raise money to build a service district hospital. Today, NRMC is the largest rural hospital in the state and is the sole healthcare system within a 35-mile radius.
Natchitoches Regional Medical Center is governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Parish President. The Board has a management agreement with CHRISTUS Health who employs NRMC’s Chief Executive Officer. The Board of Commissioners gives direction and governance to the CEO who leads the senior leadership team. The Board of Commissioners ensures legal and regulatory compliance and is responsible for the oversight of hospital operations.
