Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC)

Our Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) partners with patients and their family members to create a formal mechanism for integrating their voices into our healthcare operations.

We realize that patient and family involvement help us provide better care, which leads to better outcomes and greater patient and family satisfaction.

Patients and their families can serve as Patient and Family Advisors (PFA’s) on our PFAC and will work closely with other patients, their family members and hospital caregivers (staff) to co-design safe, high-quality patient-centered care and services.

What do we expect from our Patient & Family Advisors?

  • Commit to attending and participating in PFAC meetings (8-10 in a year).
  • Provide input on a variety of strategic initiatives, facility design, educational materials and development of services and offerings.
  • Share stories about care experiences by letting us know what went well and what we can do better.
  • Partner with us to review new program ideas that will benefit patients and family members.
  • Listen to the perspective of others and offer feedback in a constructive and professional manner.
  • Interact well and show respect to all individuals regardless of nationality, religion, gender, profession, disability, or socioeconomic status.
  • Adhere to our confidentiality practices by ensuring that information shared by our organization is not disclosed outside of the PFAC.

If you are looking for ways to draw on your personal experiences at Amana Healthcare and to contribute to the greater good by helping us improve the quality of care, this program will provide an excellent opportunity for you. No employment history is required.
