Consider joining Lowell General Hospital’s newly established Patient Family Advisory Council

Lowell General Hospital is currently seeking individuals who represent a cross-section of its community and who have chosen LGH for their healthcare needs either as an inpatient, an outpatient or both, for its Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC). Family members are equally welcome as they offer another important perspective.

A Patient Family Advisory Council is composed of volunteer patient and family advisors, as well as clinicians and administrators. Its purpose is to strengthen collaboration between patients and family members and the health care team and enhance the Hospital’s ability to deliver the highest standard of safe, comprehensive and compassionate health care.

Hospitals have these councils because they can can offer insight and recommendations for improving quality, service, safety, access, education, patient and family satisfaction and loyalty. This information is invaluable to the Hospital and will benefit patients and their families.

The Council will meet four times a year, and meetings will commence in September 2010. Interested community members will be required to complete an application and interview for a seat on the Council. Visit the LGH website to print out a copy of theĀ PFAC Application Form. More information can also be found on the LGH website.
