Seeking Community Feedback to Improve Services in Hanford

Community Needs

HANFORD – Patient satisfaction is a high priority for Adventist Health / Central Valley Network, which is why the faith-based, not-for-profit organization is looking for community members to join its new Patient & Family Advisory Committee.

The group will meet with Vice President of Experience Laurie Taggart four times a year for a catered lunch and discussion.

The Patient & Family Advisory Committee is a partnership of patient and family member advisors and an Adventist Health representative who are dedicated to advancing comprehensive and compassionate patient- and family-centered health care. Committee members will play an active role in improving the patient and family care experience by:

  • Identifying opportunities
  • Gathering and providing feedback on topics related to patient- and family-centered health care, such as improving processes and care.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to improve, and this is a great way for us to get ideas from our patients and their family members,” says Taggart.”

Those who are interested in being a part of the committee may pick up applications at the front desk of Adventist Medical Center – Hanford or Central Valley General Hospital. Applications are also available online at
