At UMHS, we view patients and family members as partners in care and make every effort to keep families together, communicate fully and frequently, and make shared decisions. We call this Patient & Family Centered Care, or PFCC.

Patient & Family Centered Care is a model of providing care that recognizes and respects the uniqueness of each family and empowers families to partner with health care providers. Opinions are asked, values are respected, and family members are viewed as key members of their loved ones’ health care team.
