Edward Hospital is seeking Bolingbrook area residents to fill openings on its Patient/Family Advisory Committee, which is made up of Edward patients, family members of Edward patients and Edward employees. The deadline to apply is July 12.
The committee was formed in 2008 with the goal of incorporating the patient and family’s perspective into the design and evaluation of Edward processes, services, environment, equipment and patient communication.
“Serving on the committee is an important responsibility because we’re the voice for every patient and family member at Edward,” says Jim Freeland, chairman, Edward Hospital’s Patient/Family Advisory Committee. “It’s very rewarding to know the ideas and changes we recommend directly impact and improve their treatment and experiences.”
Membership on the committee requires attendance at monthly meetings with the opportunity to participate in other committees of the member’s choice.
To keep the committee’s perspective fresh, members are limited to two-year terms.
