Boards & Councils
Nantucket Cottage Hospital relies on members of the community to advise our staff on the hospital’s performance and our service to the island. These Boards and Councils consist of members of Nantucket’s year-round and seasonal communities who are passionate about Nantucket Cottage Hospital and the quality of health care for everyone.
The Board of Trustees acts as the governing body of Nantucket Cottage Hospital as appointed in hospital bylaws. Click here to meet our Board of Trustees.
The Advisory Council advises and counsels the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation on issues including patient relations, communications and community events. The Council also acts as a liaison between the community and the Board of Trustees on these issues. Click here to learn more about the Advisory Council.
