Lake Wales Medical Center is seeking applicants for its Patient Advisory Council.
"Having patients and family members give their perspective on their hospital experience provides invaluable information to us as a means to improve the overall patient experience," said Andrea Clyne, Chief Nursing Officer. "So we've formed this Patient Advisory Council to offer insights to us."
Feedback received from the Council will be used to improve hospital operations, patient safety, employee engagement and patient satisfaction.
