Patient/Family Advisory Councils

UK HealthCare is committed to improving partnerships with patients, families and guests. One way these partnerships can be strengthened is through patient and family advisory councils.

Advisory councils are structured to meet monthly. They are intended to provide our enterprise with insight, feedback and information from a patient and family perspective so that we may continually improve quality, safety and service.

Current Patient/Family Advisory Councils

  • Parent Partnership Advisory Council is made up of parents and/or guardians and focuses on services at Kentucky Children’s Hospital and in our pediatric clinics.
  • Employee/Patient Family Advisory Council is made up of UK HealthCare employees who have also experienced health care from a patient or a caregiver perspective.
  • Cardiovascular Services Advisory Council brings together current and former patients who have received treatment and care from our cardiovascular services area. 
    • Medicare Advisory Council is the main council for Chandler, Good Samaritan and outpatient clinic patients/caregivers who have received care across multiple services.
