Our patients are our leaders.

As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), we are governed by a patient majority Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors is a governing body of a non-profit organization and an FQHC. Individuals who sit on a Board of Directors oversee our activities, and they meet periodically throughout the year to discuss and vote on the affairs of our organization, the mission, strategy, and goals.

Are you a patient and invested in the future of NorthLakes?

We are always seeking applications for patients who are interested in becoming a board member. If you’re interested in becoming a board member and are a patient, please fill out the Board Self-Nomination Form. If you are interested in getting more information about becoming a board member, email Mary Karchinski at
