Family Advisory Council

Hearing feedback from patients and their families helps us create a better, family-centered patient experience.

Our Family Advisory Council, made up of patients’ family members and hospital staff, identifies areas where the hospital could improve the patient and family experience and works to implement those changes.

Our goals

The Family Advisory Council’s overall goal is to help the hospital embrace a culture of family-centered care. Specifically, we aim to:

  • Communicate the needs of patients’ families to the hospital staff
  • Promote effective partnerships between families and staff to develop creative solutions to challenges faced by our patients
  • Encourage opportunities for other families to give feedback on services, programs, and policies
