Board of Directors

As a physician-led organization, Kettering Physician Partners has been developed by a number of physician leaders over the past two years. We have, with their input, appointed the initial members of the Board of Directors. The physician board members represent a cross-section of specialties with a primary care emphasis as well as representation from the various campuses and both independent and Kettering Physician Network physicians.

Board of Directors positions will begin with staggered 1, 2 and 3 year initial terms. As Board positions open, future physician representation will come from a vote of the participating physicians.
