At UPMC, we strive to place patients and their families at the center of everything we do.
Our UPMC Patient and Family Advisory Councils (PFACs) are one of many ways we invite our patients and families to share their thoughts, opinions, and advice.
Patient councils consist of patients, their families, and UPMC operational leaders. They meet regularly, whether monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly. The councils discuss and ask for patient and family feedback for a wide variety of patient topics, which may include care experiences, advice for future work or projects, review of processes and policies, and more.
To join one of our hospital councils, you or your loved one must have received care at the hospital where you would like to participate.
