Patient and Family Advisor

Learn more about becoming a Patient and Family Advisor Council »

As a patient and family advisor, your experiences are a powerful tool for inspiring change at our hospital. By sharing your perspectives and working with hospital staff and other patient and family advisors, you can make a real difference. The time and energy you invest help us make important changes and improve the care experience for other patients and families.

As an advisor, you will be asked to share your ideas about ways to improve the quality and safety of care that patients get in our hospital. This helps make sure the care and services we provide are based on "patient- and family-identified" needs rather than the assumptions of clinicians and hospital staff about what patients and families want.

Chaplains will listen, provide encouragement, offer help and resources, if you are part of a faith community the chaplain can help you connect with them, and, if desired, the chaplain can provide prayer.
