Patient/Family Advisory Council

In order to continue our commitment to providing outstanding patient care, the health care team at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center invites you to share your important perspectives.

The Patient/Family Advisory Council brings past patients and their families and loved ones together with clinical and administrative staff at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center to:

  • Share information, ideas, and concerns.
  • Participate in program development, implementation and evaluation.
  • Assist in establishing priorities related to patient and family needs.
  • Function as a representative of our patients and their families.
  • Serve as a liaison between MedStar Montgomery and our community.

The goal is to enhance the hospital's ability to deliver the highest standard of comprehensive, quality, safe health care based on the insight and recommendations of those we have cared for in the past.

In order to improve the MedStar Montgomery patient and family experience, it is important for members to be able to:

  • Dedicate two hours per month for one year.
  • Participate in decision-making and be committed to the idea of positive change.
  • Respect and value differing experiences and perspectives.
