Join Our Council
We’re looking for community members to join our Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC). As a member, you’ll provide our healthcare team with advice and feedback that shape and enhance the future of the patient and family experience at Rutland Regional.

Our Goals
Our goal is to incorporate the voice of our patients and their families in the important decisions we make to provide excellent care. We will accomplish this by:

  • Enhancing ongoing collaboration and cooperation among the healthcare team and patients by discussing patients’ needs and concerns;
  • Participating in development and planning of patient and family satisfaction initiatives;
  • Enhancing the relationship between the hospital and the community

Who Should Join the Council?
We are seeking community members who will help us achieve our goals by creating an environment where patients, families, clinicians, and hospital staff all work together as partners to improve the quality and safety of hospital care. 

Membership consideration is based on:

  • Recent experience at the hospital (within the past two years)
  • Ability to prepare for and attend regularly scheduled meetings
  • Share experiences and provide honest feedback
  • Work as a team and respect the perspective of others

What is the Time Commitment?
