Patient & Family Centered Care

We recognize the important role families and partners in care provide in supporting the health, healing and well-being of patients in their health journey. We treat them as valued members of the health care team who define their family and the level of participation they have in their care.

Patient & Family Advisors

We continue to look for new ways to strengthen our partnership with our patients and their families, and we encourage you to volunteer as advisors and partner with us to improve the overall experience of patient care.
