Advisory Boards

Community Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board was developed to gain input from our community leaders about health care needs of our community, now and in the future. The Board consists of various community leaders in our primary service area whose opinions and observations assist with moving the community forward. Meetings generally include roundtable discussions about hospital initiatives, community needs, the effect of managed care, access to healthcare and other issues in an effort to better serve Lewisville, Flower Mound and the surrounding communities.

Employee Advisory Board

The Employee Advisory Board’s purpose is to provide a forum for employees to have an additional voice regarding concerns or issues that affect them in their workplace and to present ideas and suggestions for improvements to Administration and Management. Membership consists of full and part-time employees who work at least 24 hours per week. Members are comprised of three job classifications:  50% Nursing/Clinical, 25% Professional/Ancillary, and 25% Support Staff.  Day shift, night shift, and weekend staff are represented within the Board and members serve a two-year term. The Board meets monthly to discuss issues related to quality, productivity, job enrichment, employee recognition, education, diversity and more. Employees interesting in being a part of this group should speak to their leader for more information.

Patient Experience Committee

The Patient Experience Committee was created in September 2006 and consists of patients, caregivers and hospital leadership who share a desire to improve the quality of service, enhance channels of communication and plan for the future development of our hospital facilities. The purpose of the Committee is to offer ideas and suggestions from the community’s perspective that will help guide the implementation of evidenced based processes and education in order to provide our patients and community with the safest possible care and improve the overall beautification of our facility.

The Patient Experience Committee meets 12 times a year on the 2nd Thursday evening of every month from 6:00 – 8:00pm and includes dinner. The Committee is chaired by Lynn Benjamin, CNO, and generally includes a brief update on the latest developments in and around the hospital.  To be effective, the Committee needs input from families using the hospital’s services so please consider contacting us if you are interested in being a part of this group.  Your concerns and experiences are valued. Potential members should complete the Patient Experience Committee application and commitment statement and send to Linda Hastings, Executive Administrative Assistant, by email at linda.hastings@hcahealthcare.com or call 972.420.1548 for more information.
