Background Discussion

The creation of a Healthcare Advisory Board was discussed at Work Sessions on August 4, 2015, and September 15, 2015. 

On November 3, 2015, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) authorized Resolution R-15-173 creating a Healthcare Advisory Board to evaluate, monitor, and discuss the healthcare system in Manatee County, make recommendations to the BCC, review evidence based practices and programs and how they can be applied to the County, and perform other tasks as requested by the BCC.  Terms shall end on September 30 of each year as outlined above.

  • During the initial appointments of Advisory Board members on December 15, 2015, no application was received for the category of Medically Needy Consumer of Healthcare.  This appointment will fill that vacancy.

  • The Advisory Board shall, to the maximum extent possible, be reflective of the diversity of the community.
  • All applicants are residents of Manatee County and have demonstrated by their applications that they have knowledge of healthcare related topics.
