Patient and Family Advisory Committee

It takes many voices, experiences and perspectives to reimagine health—and make it better for everyone. The Patient and Family Advisory Committee unites Pine Rest patients, families, health care professionals, and leaders to build a better model of care.

What does the Patient and Family Advisory Committee do?

Create and support a patient and family centered environment which promotes healing and the best possible clinical outcomes for patients and family members.

  • Promote patient- and family-centered care principles.
  • Enhance communication between patients, family members and care teams.
  • Identify and address patient and family members’ needs throughout the care process.
  • Work in an advisory role to enhance patient-family centered initiatives at Pine Rest.
  • Identify and establish priorities related to policy, programs and practices that support patients and families.
  • Support staff and leadership in their patient-family centered activities and initiatives.
  • Collaborate with the Pine Rest staff to facilitate patient and family access to information.
  • Improve patient and family satisfaction.
  • Evaluate the role of the council in improving outcomes for patients and families.
