Leading the Nation in Patient- and Family-Centered Care

Dr. Mary Hughes

We’re redefining the concept of care.
Dr. Mary Hughes
Faculty, Georgia Regents Medical Center

At Georgia Regents Medical Center, we’ve learned that when our patients actively participate in their care, we are able to do our jobs better, often with better outcomes. We understand that a person’s health is not just what we see when they enter our office—that our patients’ wellness involves everything, from their family members to their daily routines. That’s why at Georgia Regents Medical Center, patients and families are a crucial part of our care team. We are redefining the concept of care by embracing this philosophy and teaching it to the next generation of health care providers. That’s what patient- and family-centered care is about—keeping the patient, and families, at the center of everything we do.

Georgia Regents Medical Center is leading the nation in patient- and family-centered care. By encouraging patients and families to become an integral part of the care team, we are improving the way health care is delivered. It’s an important new philosophy in medicine and one we are proud to be leading.
