Adult Patient and Family Advisory Council

Tampa General Hospital’s Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is a diverse group of patients who meet regularly to advise Tampa General about ways to enhance the patient experience by providing more patient-centered care in an effort to help fulfill its goal of becoming the healthcare choice for our community. You can help create patient-centered care by sharing your insight and voice.
