The Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) empowers Harris Health System patients and families to partner with staff and administration to ensure patients receive the best care and outcomes, as well as an experience that exceeds their expectations. 

Our councils meet monthly with hospital executive administration to provide input into Harris Health facility plans, policies and procedures. 
If you are a recent patient of Ben Taub or Lyndon B. Johnson hospitals and would like to learn more about joining our councils, call 713-873-2808 or apply.
