Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center

The Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC) of Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center serves as the bridge between the hospital and patients and families to promote and enhance family-centered care throughout our organization.

The Advisory Council works together with hospital leadership, physicians and staff to provide input on decisions about programming, policies and strategic goals related to patient and family experience and engagement.

PFAC members are patients and/or family members of patients who have received inpatient or outpatient care from PSJMC. The Advisory Council is currently looking for new members who are willing to provide their insight, personal experiences and constructive feedback. Ideal candidates are willing to make a commitment to:

  • Attend at least eight meetings per year (held on the fourth Thursday of the month from 5:30-7:30 p.m.)
  • Share their personal perspective while appreciating the perspective of others.
  • Ask questions and request presentations of interest to the council.
  • Partner with hospital staff and presenters to impact meaningful change.
  • Represent both personal experiences and the experiences of all families.
  • Promote trust and support while maintaining confidentiality.
