Help with every step
Whether you are a patient or a visitor, we are committed to making your time with us as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Like a compass providing direction, patient navigators are a multidisciplinary group of individuals who act as educators, advocates, care coordinators, and community ambassadors. Our patient navigators can help you with tasks such as:
Finding a physician or a specialist
Translating a care plan provided by your doctor
Getting support during a difficult time

Patient and Family Advisory Council for Quality and Safety
MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center is currently recruiting new members to serve on the Patient & Family Advisory Council for Quality and Safety (PFACQS). Join together with others from your community who believe in the mission of MedStar Franklin Square, and who want to be part of the hospital’s growth, as a way of giving back.

It brings hospital and community representatives together for discussion about programs and services that are in currently in place, new, evolving, or planned for the future, and provides guidance to hospital leaders as they make decisions to improve patient care, experience, and satisfaction.
