Do you have at least one year of experience either as a patient or caregiver for someone who has been a patient at New Milford or Danbury Hospitals? If you have recent experience within one of our hospitals or within our service lines we are looking for your input.
We are interested in diversifying our Patient and Family Advisory Committee. If you are interested in learning more about the opportunity, please contact us for more information.
We Need You! Join Our Patient and Family Advisory Committee as an Advisor
Have you got an hour each month to contribute to a meaningful discussion about our community hospitals? We invite you to become a part of our Patient and Family Advisory Council
Volunteer Advisors help to enrich the patient experience. You are the voice of our community and we want to hear from you. In this vital role, you will help shape our decision making process. The rewards of participation on the committee will be plentiful.
We seek volunteers who have had a minimum of one year of experience as a patient in one of our hospitals, with one or more of our service lines, or have experience caring for a loved-one, who has obtained our services in the past year.
This is your opportunity to make your voice heard. Meetings are interactive and we all work as a team to share our experiences.
The Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is a formal structure for collaborating with patients and their families in policy and program decision-making in multiple health care settings to improve safety, quality, education/communication, and the overall patient experience.
We want you to know that you are in good hands when you entrust your care to us.
Expanding Our Reach:
Nuvance Health now serves 1.5 million individuals across the mid-Hudson Valley and western Connecticut. We are looking for PFAC members who will represent the diversity of the communities we serve. Our goal is to create a partnership with patients, family members and the healthcare team to provide excellence in prevention, treatment, education and research, promote our service lines, and provide access to vital services that will minimize health disparities and fear.
Roles and Responsibilities of the PFAC:
PFAC members will be expected to serve as the voice of the customer-our patients and families-to senior leadership, clinicians and staff of our Hospitals. In this role, members will provide honest feedback, work closely with leadership and staff to complete various projects helping to facilitate family and patient participation in hospital care and decision-making, information sharing, and policy and program development to ensure that personalized, comprehensive and collaborative care is provided to each and every patient in our hospital Network.
Our mission is to improve the health of every person we serve through the efficient delivery of excellent, innovative and compassionate care. Danbury Hospital, part of the Western Connecticut Health Network, will be the preferred partner in health and provider of care for the communities we serve and will be among the most respected community healthcare systems in the nation.
At Danbury Hospital we are committed to providing you and your family with personalized care without compromise. For more than 130 years, we have been caring for residents throughout the Greater Danbury area.
Our patients are people first - we know them from school, places of worship and the community. That’s the benefit of care from our warm, inviting community hospital as opposed to a large, unfamiliar medical center.
