If you are interested in improving patient experiences, WhidbeyHealth is seeking applicants for its Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC). The Council is a group of volunteers dedicated to improving hospital and clinic processes and procedures by sharing the patient and family perspective.
“We want people who have a commitment to have the best hospital it can possibly be,” said Linda Gipson, the hospital’s Chief Quality and Transformation Officer.
“We want them to have a voice.”
“The focus of the PFAC is to assure that our policies and processes are patient-friendly and result not only in a great clinical outcome, but in a great experience from the patient’s perspective,” Gipson said.
Specifically, the hospital is seeking people who have been a patient at the hospital or have had a family member treated there. The group meets monthly and members are expected to participate on other hospital committees tackling specific topics or issues.
The application is available on the hospital website, whidbeyhealth.org on the Patient and Family and Family Advisory Council blue box link.
Those interested in serving on the new board may contact Melissa Eggers at 360.678.7656 ext. 3151 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
