What Makes Us Different

  • The Family Advisory Council

    Since it was established in 2001, the Family Advisory Council (FAC) at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has played an important role in the hospital’s decision-making process. By incorporating the thoughts, perspectives and opinions of families into our decisions, we are able to enhance our ability to provide truly family-centered care.

    The council’s 38 members include 22 parents or adult patients, staff, faculty and trustees from the board of trustees. It meets monthly to discuss important topics – pending decisions, planned initiatives and other hospital-wide concerns – and provides input from the family perspective. Council members have influenced the design of the Liberty Campus and our building at 3430 N. Burnet Ave. We are also regularly involved with processes and plans to improve the quality and accuracy of care provided.

    Family members and adult patients of Cincinnati Children’s are welcome to volunteer for the council. Council members come from a range of backgrounds, from parents with extensive experience at Cincinnati Children’s to family members who have  recent experience with the hospital. Members serve approximately two-year terms and are recruited from a pool of applicants.
