OUR GOVERNING BOARD

The Santa Clara County Health Authority is an independent public agency that governs Santa Clara Family Health Plan (SCFHP). Appointed by the County Board of Supervisors, the 13-member Governing Board seeks to improve access to quality health care, maintain and preserve a health care safety net for Santa Clara County, and ensure the fiscal integrity of SCFHP. With the health care industry rapidly evolving, SCFHP benefits greatly from the innovative ideas and perspectives of this diverse group of people with backgrounds in business, finance, managed care, hospital administration, information technology, medicine, health care policy, and law.

Governing Board meetings are open to the public. If you are interested in attending, please visit our Meetings and Agendas page for calendars and for meeting agendas. If you need information in alternate formats, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
