Patient- and Family-Centered Care
Patient- and Family-Centered Care, a new way of delivering healthcare which involves the patient and the family in medical decisions, is at the heart of Hurley Medical Center’s approach to the practice of medicine. Our pediatric gastroenterologist includes families in the decision-making process and thoroughly explains all tests, procedures or problemsinvolved with treatment. This constant communication not only makes patients and families part of the medical team, it also produces better results and increased patient safety.
