The Family Advisory Council (FAC) provides a collaborative partnership for families and Primary Children’s Hospital staff and administration to promote the delivery of patient- and family-centered healthcare. Primary Children’s Hospital focuses on ensuring that patients and families are at the center of every decision that affects safety, quality of care or patient experience.
Who We Are
The Family Advisory Council works together to promote patient- and family-centered healthcare. Family council members are parents and family members who care for children who have been patients (either inpatient or outpatient) at the hospital. Staff council members include the CEO, physicians, administration, hospital leadership and staff. The council members represent cultural and geographic diversity. The FAC is a formal group that meets regularly for active collaboration between clinicians, hospital staff, and patients and family members on policy and program decisions.
What We Do
The FAC families and staff identify issues and, either the FAC as a whole or in subcommittee, work on them. Solutions are developed collaboratively by families and staff with guidance from the overall Primary Children’s Hospital vision. The FAC strives to be solution focused. Family members offer insight based on experiences while the staff provides insight from their professional background while Primary Children’s Administration determines what resources may be allocated to the solutions so that results can be achieved.
The FAC families share their stories, provide input on hospital initiatives and new policies and procedures, provide family representation on board of trustees and hospital committees, and give feedback on focus groups.
How to Join
You are eligible to join the Family Advisory Council if you have a child who has received care at Primary Children's Hospital. The council meets the third Tuesday of the month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
