Family Advisory Council

The Komansky Center Family Advisory Council (FAC) is a group of dedicated parents and family members of pediatric patients who are committed to working with Komansky Center hospital staff and administration to provide family-centered care to all Komansky Center patients. The Komansky Center FAC seeks to promote communication between families and staff to improve the delivery of care in the hospital. The FAC works to ensure a child's stay is as comfortable as possible by improving patient services and providing families with the information and guidance they need to care for their children with confidence.

About FAC

In October 2006, New York-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health began to integrate a family-centered approach to healthcare within the Department of Pediatrics. With the goal of improving health outcomes, the Komansky Center Family-Centered Care Committee (KCFCC) was established. It included physicians, nurses, social workers, child life specialists and parents. The Komansky Center Family Advisory Council (KCFAC) was formed at that time, and works with hospital staff administration to help develop programs and resources to improve the delivery of care and patient satisfaction.
