Patient and Family Advisory Council

Are you a student looking to gain experience in the health care field? Are you raising a young family and find yourself at the clinic or hospital on a regular basis? Please consider this unique opportunity to serve on the Hudson Hospital & Clinic Patient and Family Advisory Council.

The Council is a group that serves as the "voice of the patient" for people who have received health services at Hudson Hospital & Clinic. Current and former patients have valuable knowledge and experience to share with other consumers and service providers.

The Council meets four times a year.
