There are four Regional Boards within the WellStar system.

Regional Health Boards

Members serve as ambassadors and advisors to WellStar at the local-level by providing community input for the development of programs and services. These Boards meet bi-monthly and have approximately 35 members per Board. Members serve three-year terms for a maximum of 12 years.
