What does Inspired Care mean to you?

People in rural communities are more than just a face; they are family and friends. We live together, laugh together and care for each other in ways you won’t find in a larger community. This care extends to treatment we receive at our local hospital and clinic. Each of us are special, and inspired care impacts our lives. This is all found at TCHC.

Our Purpose

Tri-County Health Care is a not-for-profit organization comprised of one hospital and six clinics located in Bertha, Henning, Ottertail, Sebeka, Verndale and Wadena. The organization's not-for-profit status ensures that all financial resources remaining after expenses are paid and are committed to improving technology, patient services and facilities.

There is an 11-member board of directors comprised of community leaders throughout the regions we serve. The board of directors provides oversight to the executive leadership of Tri-County Health Care, and is responsible for the institution, the protection of its assets, and the quality of its services. The Board of Directors is a volunteer board and Directors do not get paid for their time and commitment to Tri-County Health Care.

The Board of Directors determines the organization's policy and provides direction and counsel on management, administration, planning and development. Directors are responsible for the organization's compliance on applicable legal requirements, the maintenance of professional and ethical standards of health services and sound financial management and operation of Tri-County Health Care Hospital and Clinics.

Board meetings are held monthly, but the volunteer Directors also serve a minimum of one or more of the standing committees on the Board. In addition, Board education meetings are also held. The facility is guided by a continuous quality improvement philosophy that stresses leadership commitment, organization-wide approach, customer and process mindedness and employee involvement.

You may contact any of the Board members through Tri-County Health Care's Administration at 218-631-7487.

What does Inspired Care mean to you?

Inspired care means putting the wants and needs of each patient first. It involves listening to each patient individually to determine what is most important and appropriate to them. Each individual must be cared for as a person, not just another patient. When every patient is treated like family – that is inspired care.
