What Makes Cincinnati Children’s Different?
Family Advisory Council

The Family Advisory Council

Since it was established in 2001, the Family Advisory Council 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 family-centered care.

The council meets monthly from September to June to discuss pending decisions, 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 new Critical Care building. We are also regularly involved with processes and plans to improve the quality and safety of care provided.

Family members and adult patients of Cincinnati Children's are welcome to apply to join 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.
