The board voted for Marie Saleeby, past Chair, to continue on the board as treasurer. She has served HopeHealth with excellence for the last six years.

“Her knowledge of health care and her understanding of safety net providers have truly been an asset to our company,” said Carl Humphries, HopeHealth CEO. “Under her leadership, we have been challenged to solidify our cash reserve and that has prepared us well for the current challenges in healthcare. We are indebted to Marie and thankful for her leadership.”

During the first meeting of the new fiscal year, the members reviewed and approved HopeHealth’s strategic plan for 2020-2022. Focused on three priority areas – community needs, employee recruitment and retention, and quality processes. The plan builds on the previous two-year strategic place and includes specific goals and objectives designed to help HopeHealth navigate the next two years as a leader in providing affordable, accessible health care in the region.

In keeping with the Federally Qualified Health Center requirement that a majority of directors is served by the center, nine of the 14 board members call HopeHealth their primary health care home.



HopeHealth educates its patients on the importance of having a health care home. As a primary care facility, HopeHealth’s medical team works to prevent and detect illness and the early onset of disease, provide routine physical examinations and promote overall healthy lifestyles.
