Pediatric Advisory Council

The PAC is a group of current and former patients who are committed to sharing their experiences and working together to make the Children's Hospital an even better place.

What kind of projects has the PAC worked on in the past?

The PAC was a major voice in the design of the new Children's Hospital building. The PAC also helped create the hospital room-service menu patients still use today. PAC members have participated in activities ranging from creating "thank you" gifts for special donors to being in a Kelly Pickler video filmed here at the hospital.

We Care for Kids Day
PAC members often help at special events such as
our annual We Care for Kids Day event.
Who is on the PAC?

PAC members are mostly teens with either inpatient or outpatient experiences. Some members have spent a great deal of time in the hospital and others have just had one experience.

When does the PAC meet?

The PAC meets three or four times per year. These meetings are when we get to know each other, brainstorm ways to improve the hospital, and suggest positive changes. PAC members also have opportunities to serve as ambassadors for Children's Hospital at community events such as We Care for Kids Day.
