Organizational Structure

Midwest Kidney Network organizational chart

Network Council

Two representatives from every dialysis and kidney transplant facility in our region serve on the Network Council. This body elects members to serve on the Board of Directors and the Medical Review Committee.

Each committee includes at least one patient representative and all committee members are volunteers. We hold elections for these committees every two years. Our next elections will take place at the end of 2018. If you are interested in serving, contact us to learn more.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors oversees corporate affairs: finance management, contract business, and the nominations and election process. View a list of Board members.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee monitors and reports on the Network's financial standing. In addition, this committee advises on resource management strategies.

Medical Review Committee

The Medical Review Committee (MRC) looks closely at clinical data on facility performance and patient outcomes. Their review process helps Midwest Kidney Network develop effective quality improvement projects and set recommended treatment goals for ESRD providers.

Consumer Committee

Midwest Kidney Network's Consumer Committee is 13 people who have personal experience with kidney failure and who want to contribute to the welfare of other individuals experiencing the same. Consumer Committee members are elected by current members and serve as long as they feel able to do so. We frequently announce vacancies in our newsletter Kidney Concerns, but you may also contact us to learn more.
