Barton Health Welcomes Community Input

South Lake Tahoe, CA – Community volunteers are encouraged to join the Patient Family Advisory Council and share insight about their experience at Barton Memorial Hospital.

The Council’s advisors play an active role in implementing constructive changes to the Hospital’s quality and safety. Any past Barton Hospital patient or family member of a patient can participate.

 “Patients and their family members provide a valuable perspective of the hospital experience,” says Christine O’Farrell, Barton Health’s Director of Quality. “Advisors gain an insider’s view of Barton Health and are instrumental in improving how we take care of patients.” 

Commitment to the Council includes attending monthly meetings at 4:00 pm and serving on a patient experience-related committee. Adults of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. 

All council advisors are pre-screened and must undergo a background check. Members must be 18 or older and cannot be related to a Barton Health employee. For more information about joining the Patient and Family Advisory Council, call Natasha Schue at 530.543.5537 or go to bartonhealth.org/patientfamilycouncil.
