PMG Patient & Family Advisory Council

The Patient and Family Advisory Council works with members of the Providence Medical Group staff to provide valuable feedback and personal insights on the patient care experience.

The Council is composed of 15-25 members, many are patients or family members of patients and are selected to reflect the population served by Providence Medical Group clinics throughout Snohomish County. This includes individuals of varied ages, gender, ethnicity and socio-economic status. All members must be 18 years of age or older.
