Board Of Directors


Quality Insights Renal Network 3 is governed by its Board of Directors, which consists of up to 14 members. The Board provides leadership and oversight of: the strategic direction of the organization; performance of management staff in meeting ESRD network contract requirements and deliverables; activities and recommendations of the Network Council, Medical Review Board and Patient Advisory Committee; the financial operation of the organization; and corporate compliance.

The membership of the Board of Directors includes representatives of a variety of health care settings and disciplines relevant to the ESRD population, which may include hospitals, dialysis centers, nursing homes, home health, hospice, dialysis patients and other consumers, physicians, and other clinical and administrative professionals. Members are selected to be broadly representative of the network service area.

Directors are appointed for three-year terms and generally may serve no more than two consecutive terms. Terms are staggered so that approximately one-third of the directors are appointed each year. Directors are appointed by the Quality Insights, Inc. Board of Directors at the first meeting of the calendar year, or otherwise as vacancies arise. Our directors are not compensated for Board service other than reimbursement of travel-related expenses.


If you are interested in becoming a member of the Board of Directors, please contact Christopher Brown at (609) 490-0310 ext. 2426 or chrisbrown@nw3.esrd.net.
