Patient and Family Advisory Council
Our Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC) provides a link between the hospital and the community, and to help identify the needs and priorities of patients and families from the communities we serve; Merrimack Valley Region and Southern New Hampshire. The Council assists AJH in creating an environment of patient and family centered care and improve quality and patient safety. It also provides the hospital feedback on potential solutions the hospital is considering implementing to solve a problem or improve care.
The Patient Family Advisory Council is designed to serve as a voice of the patient and family members and to encourage the partnership between patients, families, health care providers and the hospital.
