Family Advisory Council

The Family Advisory Council's Mission

Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital Family Advisory Council ensures that patients and families are at the center of the care provided at our hospital. Through collaborative efforts between the families, staff, physicians and administration of the hospital, our objective is to influence positive change to improve the experience and outcomes for our patients.
