Fort HealthCare is proud to announce the establishment of its Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC), an initiative that marks a significant stride towards fostering patient-centered healthcare services. The PFAC, comprised of dedicated individuals from diverse backgrounds, will play a pivotal role in collaborating with healthcare professionals to enhance the overall patient experience.

“In the pursuit of health equity, the Patient and Family Advisory Council serves as a beacon of hope, ensuring that the voices of all individuals, regardless of background, are heard and valued in decision-making processes of healthcare,” remarked Molly Prater, Chair of the Patient and Family Advisory Council.

In tandem with the launch, Fort HealthCare is actively recruiting high-energy individuals to join the ranks of Patient Advisors. This unique opportunity empowers patients and their families to actively contribute to the shaping of healthcare policies and practices at a high level within our organization.

Lisa Jensen, Chief Nursing Officer at Fort HealthCare, expressed her enthusiasm for the launch of the PFAC, stating, “At Fort HealthCare, we believe in the power of partnership between healthcare providers and the individuals we serve. The Patient and Family Advisory Council is a testament to our dedication to cultivating a healthcare experience that is not only medically excellent but also deeply compassionate. We are excited to welcome individuals who are passionate about making a difference in healthcare to join us in this transformative journey.”

Patient Advisors will actively participate in strategic discussions, provide valuable insights, and collaborate with healthcare professionals to drive positive changes in patient care. This is an exceptional opportunity for community members to contribute to the evolution of healthcare practices at Fort HealthCare and make a lasting impact on the well-being of our community.

Fort HealthCare invites community members who are passionate about patient advocacy and committed to improving healthcare to apply for the role of Patient Advisor.
