Patient and Family Centered Care

We have adopted an integrated approach that considers individual preferences and needs, provides thorough information so that patients and family can choose the treatment that is right for them and focuses on the emotional comfort of all patients and families.

In addition, we encourage the involvement of patients and their families in shaping our services. Since 2012, Sentara Martha Jefferson has built a strong community partnership with its Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC). Our PFAC members commit their time, efforts and talents to serve in a consulting capacity for a variety of hospital issues and programs. Working together, we support Sentara’s mission to improve health every day.
