Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Patient & Family Advisory Council

Focused on Improving Care for You

At Saint Vincent Hospital, we’re always looking to improve the ways we are able to care for you and our community. As part of that effort, we created the Saint Vincent Hospital Patient Family Advisory Council. 

What Is the Patient & Family Advisory Council?

The council provides a forum for patients and families to share feedback. It is made up of volunteers who are committed to improving care at Saint Vincent Hospital for all patients and their families.

Our Goals

The council works to promote our primary goals of: 

  • Continuously supporting quality improvements, improving communication and recommending solutions to existing services, programs, policies, communications and/or business strategies
  • Developing cost-effective solutions to challenges the hospital faces
  • Promoting respectful, effective partnerships among patients, families, health care providers and administrators

Interested in Joining?

We are always seeking dedicated individuals who want to help us improve the care we can provide for our community. Applications for the Patient and Family Advisory Council can be obtained from the Saint Vincent Hospital Volunteer Services Department.
