CaroMont Care Advocates

A Community-Based Patient Advisory Council

The CaroMont Care Advocates (CCA) is a diverse group of patients, family and community members who meet regularly to advise CaroMont Health on how we can provide better patient-centered care and fulfill our mission to provide exceptional health care to the communities we serve.

The mission of the CaroMont Care Advocates Council is to advocate for patients and their families by advising CaroMont Health and Medical Staff Leadership on decisions that will guide them in creating and sustaining a patient and family centered environment of caring and provide exceptional healthcare to the communities CaroMont Health serves.

The goals of the council are:

  • Delivery of Safe and Patient Focused Services: To serve as advisors to Senior Leadership and CaroMont Health staff to assure that care and services are safe, efficient and patient and family focused.
  • Integrating the Voice of the Patient: To lend a patient and family perspective in the development of new services or the improvement of existing services throughout CaroMont Health.
  • Education: To create educational opportunities that improve sensitivity to patient and family concerns, and to suggest effective ways of managing the staff-to-patient and family relationship.
  • Enhancing Communicaiton: To encourage patients and families to communicate their needs and concerns and to assist CaroMont Health in developing effective methods of addressing these needs and concerns, and to help CaroMont Health achieve a Highly Reliable Organization and Zero Harm.

CaroMont Care Advocates are involved in numerous activities and initiatives spanning our health care system from our CaroMont Medical Group Transition of Care Committee to Emergency Department Improvement Discussion.
