VUMC Recognizes the Office of Patient Affairs in Celebration of National Patient Advocacy Week

In celebration of National Patient Advocacy Week, VUMC recognizes and expresses great appreciation for the hard work of our Office of Patient Affairs http://www.vanderbilthealth.com/main/13777.

VUMC’s patient advocates perform essential service recovery functions and seldom receive well-deserved recognition. Many different individuals and offices contribute to VUMC’s success, of course. This week offers a time to shine the light on our Patient Affairs representatives who diligently work with patients, families, health care professionals and staff to field compliments, comments and concerns that may arise.

Please join us in taking advantage of Patient Advocacy Week to thank our Patient Affairs colleagues for the critical roles they play in VUMC’s success.
