Strategy enriched by diverse perspectives

Vizient™ is governed by a 22-member Board of Directors that includes executives and clinicians from academic medical centers, community hospitals and independent organizations across the nation.

This diversity enables the board to provide counsel on the strategic direction of the organization and decisions that affect our financial performance and return to members. The directors also serve on various board committees.

We follow recommendations of the National Association of Corporate Directors and invest in developing board members' knowledge of their corporate responsibilities so they are well-equipped to serve on behalf of the membership.
