The all-volunteer board has members representing the Putnam County Community Foundation, the Putnam County Hospital, other health care providers, skilled nursing facilities, funeral homes, hospice providers, caregivers, local media and others committed to the PCHPCA’s mission.
The 2021 officers are J Miranda and Tammy Hunter, who co-chair the board; Charity Pankratz, vice president; J Miranda, secretary; John Savage, treasurer; and Lisa Miller, past president.
Board members include Jinsie Bingham, Tasheena Duncan, Susan Gick, Jared Jernagan, Meagan Montague, Judi Purvis, Brand Selvia and Jacob Whitaker.

The PCHPCA is a non-profit, public charity that has joined national, state and community efforts to increase the quality of life for seriously ill persons and their loved ones, caregivers and health care providers in Putnam County.
In 2021, the PCHPCA will continue moving toward two goals: 1) To increase utilization of hospice and palliative care services, and 2) to increase advance care planning conversations in the county.
The PCHPCA does not charge for services, but relies on charitable grants and donations to support its work. It is partially supported by the Putnam County Community Foundation and the Putnam County Hospital.
