Meritcare names new board of governors

Meritcare recently established a Board of Governors for the northern region of the combined Sanford Health-Meritcare organization.

The Board of Governors will oversee the professional practice of physicians and other providers and set policy and direction for the group consonant with the mission and strategy of Meritcare Health System.

Initial membership of the Meritcare Board of Governors includes a cross-section of primary and specialty care physicians from across the region served by Meritcare Health System.

Sanford Health has a similar Board of Governors for physicians in the southern region.

It is a future goal to establish one corporate Council of Governors comprised of equal representation of Sanford and Meritcare physicians.

A local representative included is Mark Paulson, M.D., located in Perham.

Paulson is board certified in family medicine.

He received his medical degree from the University of North Dakota School of Medicine, Grand Forks. Paulson joined Meritcare in 1988.
