What We Can Do For You and Your Family


Are you interested in becoming a Patient & Family Experience Partner?

Patient and Family Experience Partners (PEP) are volunteers who act as advisors to the Hospital Team and provide input to help decision-making when changes are underway.

Patients and their loved ones have a unique perspective of the care and service they receive during their hospital stay. That perspective is invaluable whether the experience was a positive one – or not. What would have made your stay more comfortable? What information would have been helpful? If you had to go through it again, what would you do differently – or wish the Hospital did differently?

These insights are helping the Ross Memorial to improve the way it delivers care, every day.

The Hospital currently has Patient and Family Experience Partners on several committees, including the Accessibility Steering Committee, and the Quality, Safety & Risk Council.

We are always looking for interested PEPs. Involvement may include having a long-term presence on committees, or it could be a short-term commitment involving the completion of surveys or the review of Hospital information to be sure it is clear and reader-friendly.

Those interested may apply by completing the Patient Experience Partner Application.You must also complete the Patient Experience Partner Reference Form.

Submit the completed application forms to the RMH Auxiliary’s Director of Volunteer Services via the Information Desk in the Hospital’s main lobby, or email them to

Patient and Family Experience Partners will go through an interview process, including criminal record check, and orientation to understand Hospital policies, such as the promise to protect patient privacy. PEPs must have been patients, or family members of patients, within the last five years.
