In 1901, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Belvidere, Ill. agreed to establish a hospital in Lewiston, Idaho. On Feb. 8, 1902, St. Joseph Hospital opened in a seven-room frame house. Despite the rugged conditions and limited space, the community recognized the need for a larger hospital and banded together to build and open a 50-bed facility in 1903.

The Patient Family Advisory Council serves as an advisory resource to hospital administration and staff to provide feedback on specific programs, promote improved relationships and act as a communication bridge between patients, families, and hospital staff. The Council provides a venue to ensure that the patient and family’s point of view and perspective are integrated into patient care and quality improvement initiatives.
