RMC Establishes Patient and Family Council

Regional Medical Center has established a Patient and Family Advisory Council.

The new council was created to bring perspectives, ideas and priorities of the community into planning, improvement, safety and quality within the hospital with a goal to gain a better understanding of patient and family interactions.

The Patient and Family Advisory Council is comprised of volunteer community members Brandie Cummings, Sarah Helle, Jane Jones, Linda Petersen, Gail Prinsen and Joan Schmidt, as well as RMC’s Quality Services Manager Amanda Donlon, Chief Nursing Officer Heather Ries and CEO Charlie Button.

The council meets regularly to provide constructive feedback from personal experiences and experiences that have been shared with them. They also provide feedback on current projects related to patients’ experiences with the hospital.
