CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Sara Baldwin, Ph.D., RN, an Associate Professor in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, has been appointed to serve on the CHRISTUS Health Plan Board of Directors. She will assume her new role effective January 2014.

Board member responsibilities include assisting with the establishment of policies, making strategic decisions, and ensuring effective functioning of the CHRISTUS Population Health Plan, particularly as it relates to Nueces County Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Managed Care Activities.

“Very few nurses serve on boards of health care organizations,” said Baldwin. “By bringing nurses to the board room, you are essentially bringing the voice of the patient and the health of the community to the table, because this is our passion.”

CHRISTUS Health System is a Catholic health ministry, with a mission to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. With core values that include dignity, integrity, excellence, compassion, and stewardship, they are ranked among the top 10 Catholic health systems in the United States by size. The CHRISTUS Health system includes more than 40 hospitals and facilities in seven U.S. states and six states in Mexico, with assets of more than $4.6 billion.
