Kingsbrook’ Patient Family Engagement Advisory Committee

Mission Statement

The Patient Family Engagement Advisory Committee is dedicated to improving the delivery of healthcare standards at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center. We will achieve this by working in active partnership with our health care providers, staff, patients and family members to strengthen communication and collaboration, promote patients and family advocacy and involvement, propose and participate in programs, services, and policies at Kingsbrook.


The purpose of PFEAC is to achieve quality and safety goals by engaging patients and their families, determining what is important to them in every situation, and partnering with them to make improvements to all aspect of care.


Encourage patients and family members to participate as advisors. Promote better communication between staff and patient and family advisors (PFAs). Engage PFAs with short-term projects in the hospital from the planning stage throughout the implementation stage.
