Patient and Family Advisory Committee
We are glad that you want to learn more about Patient- and Family-Centered Care.
UAB Hospital is among a growing number of hospitals that is committed to patient- and family-centered care in the planning, design, and delivery of care. We are a sponsor of the Institute for Patient and Family Centered Care (www.ipfcc.org) and work with other organizations across the country. Our goal is to listen to the voice of our patients and their families. We want our patients and families to help us provide the highest quality of care to every patient, every time. We know that our patients and families give another view into how we can change to become a patient- and family-centered hospital.
We are on a journey and we invite your help. We are excited to start our Patient and Family Advisory Council this fall at UAB Hospital. This council will give us direction as we work to become one of the best hospitals in America. What our patients and families think is important as we work to provide safe, high quality, and compassionate care.
