PATIENT AND FAMILY ADVISOR Kermitt Wright has had more than his fair share of health problems, from cancer and heart surgery to gallbladder removal. Now
in remission, he's giving back by serving as a patient advisor for the hospital. Once a month, Wright speaks to the new
employee orientation class at AAMC.
"I tell them to be the best people they can be in this job," says the 60-year-old, who was born and raised in Annapolis. "Sometimes you'll run into patients who are dealing with some heart-wrenching situations. Always remember: You have the power to make their day."
Advisors provide direct influence on the policies, programs and practices that affect your care and services.
This role allows our patients and their families to get involved as we work to improve our practices and guidelines. You have the chance to give input on one of many committees and projects.
As an advisor, you’ll receive an orientation and be paired with a hospital employee to assist you in your new position.
