The board shall have the exclusive control of the expenditures of all hospital moneys, except hospital moneys acquired through the issuance of revenue bonds, and all expenditures shall be subject to the approval of a majority of all the members of the board. The board is authorized to invest in any mutual insurance company organized by an association of health care providers to which the hospital belongs, enter into contracts with such company, pay any assessments pursuant to such contracts and arrange for the issuance of a letter of credit by any bank chartered by this state or which is a member bank of the federal reserve system. The board is charged with the supervision, care and custody of all hospital property. The board is authorized to enter into employment contracts to engage the services of an administrator or chief executive officer to manage the affairs of the hospital, to establish compensation for such services and to establish the terms of the engagement. The board may also require personal or surety bonds of all hospital employees entrusted with the handling of hospital moneys, such bonds to be in an amount to be determined and approved by the board.

(b) The board may establish and fund pension and deferred compensation plans and any other employee benefit plans for hospital employees and may procure contracts insuring hospital employees, their dependents, or any class or classes thereof, under a policy or policies covering one or more risks including, but not limited to, a policy or policies of life, disability income, health, accident, accidental death and dismemberment, and hospital, surgical and medical expense insurance or may provide for a plan of self-insurance for such purposes. The employee's contribution, if any, to the plan and to the premiums for insurance or for the expenses incurred by the board under a plan of self-insurance may be deducted by the employer from the employee's salary when authorized in writing by the employee.
