Help Us Improve: Join A Franciscan Patient Family Advisory Council

Franciscan Health System is seeking volunteers to serve on its Patient Family Advisory Councils and help the organization create an excellent experience for patients and their families, every where and every time.

Ideally, volunteers will have received care at one or more of Franciscan's hospitals, outpatient centers and/or Franciscan Medical Group clinics.

By bringing together former patients and asking them to share their experiences and suggestions for improvements, Franciscan staff will see the organization's processes in a new light and hear innovative ideas for enhancing the "Franciscan experience" for patients.

There are five Patient Family Advisory Councils – one for each of Franciscan's hospitals: St. Joseph Medical Center, Tacoma; St. Francis Hospital, Federal Way; St. Clare Hospital, Lakewood; St. Anthony Hospital, Gig Harbor; and St. Elizabeth Hospital, Enumclaw.

Patient Family Advisory Council volunteers will attend one meeting each month and serve one-year terms beginning in October 2011. Apply online or call toll-free 1-888-825-3227. Recruitment of volunteers continues through Sept. 30.
