Getting Care

Patient and Family Partnership Council

Do you have ideas to help improve our medical center?
Become a patient and family partner!

Patient and family partners help us by:

  • Sharing stories about their hospital experience
  • Helping to create materials and plans for improving health care quality and safety
  • Providing input on how to improve our policies and care practices
  • Giving feedback about their hospital stay
  • Letting us know what went well and what we can do better

What skills do you need?

Partners should be able to:

  • Listen and share their opinions respectfully
  • Think about ways to improve health care
  • Work well with others

No other qualifications are required. However, you must be willing to become an American Red Cross Volunteer to obtain appropriate certification (including a security clearance). We will provide any necessary training.

Don't forget to keep your family's information up-to-date in DEERS.
