Middle Park Medical Center Creates Patience Family Advisory Council

Middle Park Medical Center (MPMC) is preparing for it’s first-ever, Patient Family Advisory Council (PFAC) to begin in August. The overall goal of the council is to give the community and patients a voice in the future of MPMC and those it serves. The PFAC will be comprised of six to eight members of the community that are patients, or have been in the past, or are family members of patients. Additionally, up to four hospital staff will be selected for the council. Members of the PFAC will have a chance to share experiences, both good and bad, and find ways to incorporate positive changes in the MPMC structure.

“Middle Park Medical Center is excited to get the PFAC created and assisting us in becoming the premier rural health care provider in Colorado,” said David Ross, CEO of MPMC. “It will be yet another way to strengthen our ties within the communities of Grand, Jackson and Northern Summit counties and to provide even better quality patient care.”

The primary goals of the PFAC are fourfold: 1) Identify and address patient and family needs. 2) Improve relationships among patients, their families, MPMC, and other local healthcare providers. 3) Empower patients, their families, and staff through ongoing communication. 4) Protect patient dignity and assure safety.

Council members can expect no-less than four meetings a year to be held in one of the MPMC facilities.
