Sacred Heart Health System has added a fourth Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC) with the addition of an Advisory Council at The Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart in Pensacola. The Council helps advise the hospital on ways it can enhance patient care.

Patient & Family Advisory Council’s now provide input at the following Sacred Heart facilities:

*Sacred Heart Hospital Pensacola, with Geri Savage as chair;

*The Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart in Pensacola, with Theresa Chmiel as chair;

*Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast in Miramar Beach, with George Hendrix as chair; and

*Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf in Port St. Joe, with Martha Sandford as chair.

“We want to give our patients and family members a voice in making decisions and plans that affect them,” says Ann Erickson, RN, Patient/Staff Advocate. “Our goal is to improve the healthcare of our community, so it makes sense to include the community in how we provide healthcare.”
