St. Luke’s Magic Valley Patient and Family Advisory Council Seeks New Members

By Ken Dey, News and Community
December 13, 2013

In March, 2010, the St. Luke’s Magic Valley Patient & Family Advisory Council was formed, recognizing the unique perspective patients and families can provide to enhance our programs, care and service.

St Luke’s Magic Valley and St. Luke’s Jerome are currently recruiting community members for this council. If you have been a patient in one of our facilities in Twin Falls or Jerome, or cared for a family member who has been a patient and would like to share your experience, please call     814-0001 for information.

Potential Patient and Family Advisory Council members should not be concerned if they feel unfamiliar with health care systems and the medical world.  Council meetings will be conducted using non-medical jargon.  Educational materials on relevant information will be provided.  The primary goal is the inclusion of patients and the non-professional health care perspective.  Their observations, questions, comments and opinions will be valued and respected.

The Patient & Family Council Advisory Council meetings are scheduled the third Monday of each month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (lunch is served) at St Luke’s Magic Valley.  Additional opportunities are available to serve on a variety of hospital committees to act as a community representative.

For more information, contact Laura Stewart, (208) 814-0015 or lauras@slhs.org
