Commissioners interview Central Health board candidates

Thursday, August 13, 2020 by Jessi Devenyns

Central Health has lately been focused on Covid-19 relief efforts throughout Travis County. However, in order to effectively guide policy throughout the county, the board governing the hospital district needs effective leadership. Central Health’s board is composed of qualified volunteers who strive to improve the quality of health care and outcomes and increase access to services in Travis County while working a $290.8 million budget. When appointee Abigail Aiken gave her resignation last November, the city of Austin and Travis County started searching for a replacement to finish her term ending on Dec. 31, 2020, as well as assume a term that extends through the end of 2024. After eight months of applications and reviews, there are three finalists: Cynthia Brinson, Susan Lee and Amit Motwani. The Travis County Commissioners Court will interview the finalists today at 1:30 p.m. Candidate interviews will be broadcast on a video conference and a final decision may be made today.
