A Letter from Our President

Please consider becoming our partner for patient safety and quality.

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is pleased to announce the formation of a Patient and Family Advisory Council for Quality and Safety (PFACQS).  Being a provider of health care in our community for generations, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital greatly appreciates hearing from you – the patients and families who rely on us to provide safe, high quality health care. We are honored to serve and care for you and your loved ones.  Your feedback helps us do our best to meet your needs and the needs of other members of our community.  We are confident that creating a PFACQS with a shared vision will help to make our community even stronger and healthier

Our goal is to create a council that embodies partnership and open communication about what works well for you and what could work better. The PFACQS will reflect the diverse patient populations we serve – diversity in terms of income level, racial and ethnic makeup, health status and religion to name a few. The council will be composed of patients, family members or friends of patients, and community leaders, as well as healthcare professionals from MedStar Health.

Powerful Voices. Positive Change. 


2016 Report to the Community 

The hands also hint of wings that reflect the strong Jesuit principles that have shaped the hospital since its inception. At the center of the image stands a heart that demonstrates the spirit of caring. Together these symbols amplify a simple--yet powerful—idea: Sharing decisions. Caring moments.
