Patient Advisory Council Needs New Members

Fauquier Health is currently seeking new members for our Patient Advisory Council. The council provides health system feedback regarding patients’ and their families’ experiences, and thoughts on new initiatives or current issues.

The group was established at Fauquier Health in 2007 and has taken communication with patients to a whole new level.

Patients and caregivers attend semiannual meetings and offer their impressions of the health system and the care they have received. Also, the council brainstorms new and innovative ways to improve current programs, services and the patient experience.

Fauquier Health is looking for former patients who:
● Are supportive of the mission of the council;
● Have good communication skills;
● Are able to use personal experiences constructively; and
● Are able to work productively and collaboratively with members of varying backgrounds.

Council members make a two-year commitment, which allows for the membership of each subgroup to consist of veterans as well as new members simultaneously.

To volunteer for the Patient Advisory Council, call 540-316-3902 for an application.
