Saddleback Medical Center
Partnerships with patients and families are the foundation of excellence in Patient and Family Centered Care, and at Saddleback Medical Center our patients are valued members of their medical care team.
The empowering relationship of patients, families and health care professionals allows patients to become more aware, and better educated as to how to contribute to their own well-being. Their concerns and opinions are valued and addressed by an innovative health care culture and approach.
To develop and advance team partnerships, the Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is the voice for patients and their family members. Members serving on the council have been patients or family members of patients. From such experiences, council members share their stories, awareness, perceptions and understanding of this collaborative partnership.
