UNM Health Sciences Center Clinical Operations Board Elects Officers

The UNM Health Sciences Center (HSC) Clinical Operations Board has elected new officers for a three-year term.

The officers are: Paul Donisthorpe, chairman; Alberto Gutierrez, vice-chairman and Christina Campos, secretary.

The nine-member Clinical Operations Board oversees the non-research, non-educational clinical operations of clinical facilities at the HSC, enabling the provision of high quality healthcare services to patients and supporting the teaching and clinical research missions of the HSC.

The board reviews and approves a number of policies, agreements and budgets, including the operating and capital budgets and operating and strategic plans, labor-management relations policy and collective bargaining agreement.

In addition, the board also reviews and approves HSC medical staff bylaws, rules and regulations, assuring that medical staff have reasonable policies regarding credentialing of physicians and ancillary providers who practice at HSC clinical facilities.

The board also acts upon medical staff recommendations for appointing and reappointing staff members and granting and revoking the privileges of physicians and ancillary providers who practice at HSC clinical facilities.

It is also the responsibility of the Clinical Operations Board to oversee HSC advisory and advocacy boards that have purposes other than research and education.

Seven members of Clinical Operations Board are appointed by the UNM Regents and two are appointed by the Bernalillo County Commission.
