Our Cooperative was founded on the revolutionary idea that patients should be in the driver’s seat of their healthcare system.

They organized our Cooperative so that the member would be at the top of the leadership chart. This gives them a voice in their health care.

Be a Part of Something Bigger

As A Member-Owner, You Have A Voice

Run for the Board of Directors.

Elect the Board of Directors.

Participate in surveys and focus groups provided by our Member Engagement Network.

Attend the Annual Meeting to see financials and provide feedback.

At the end of each year, surplus funds are reinvested back into the organization.

How can members have a say in their Cooperative?

Each year, your Cooperative holds an Annual Membership Meeting so your voice can be heard. We’ve hosted this meeting virtually the past several years. Every GHC-SCW member is invited to join leaders in the organization as they give updates about the past year.

If you have questions about the annual meeting, please email or call (608) 662-4183.

Our members vote for the people who oversee the organization. GHC-SCW Board members must be GHC-SCW members.

Members who want to serve on the Board of Directors must submit an application to the GHC-SCW Nominations Committee. The committee reviews these applications and recommends qualified candidates to the general membership. All eligible GHC-SCW voting members can vote online or by mail-in paper.

Another way all members can use their voice is giving us feedback through the GHC Experience GuaranteeSM online form. If you had an excellent experience at a GHC-SCW clinic, let us know! We’ll pass on your kind words to the staff members that helped you. If your experience didn’t meet your expectations, you can let us know as well and at your request we can refund your out-of-pocket costs. This feedback loop is an important way you can help us constantly improve.

The Member Engagement Network is an innovative approach to integrating member feedback into the heart of our health care services. This network signifies our commitment to not just listen, but actively involve our members in shaping the health care experiences through member surveys and focus groups. Keep an eye on your monthly GHC-SCW member email newsletter to find ways to get involved.

The Member Engagement Network: Your Voice, Our Mission

Our goal is to harness the collective insights and experiences of our diverse membership to drive advancements within GHC-SCW. By partnering with our members through the Member Engagement Network, we gain valuable perspectives through electronic surveys and focus group discussions. This direct feedback informs our initiatives to improve health care quality and accessibility

A Collaborative Vision for Health Care

We envision a health care system where every voice counts. Whether it’s through completing a survey or participating in a focus group, your input is vital. We’re building a platform that values patient and member feedback, ensuring that the direction of GHC-SCW’s health care services is created with member feedback in mind.
