As the mother of three sons living with mitochondrial disease, Libby Hoy has 20 years of experience navigating the healthcare system. Hoy began volunteering as a parent mentor in 1995 and has been working to improve health systems and empower patients and families to be active partners in care ever since. In her role as the first Family Advocate at Miller Children’s Hospital, she developed the Parent Advisory Board and created the structure for the long-term integration of the patient and family voice within the organization. Hoy has presented at multiple national and international conferences on subjects related to patient- and family-centered care (PFCC) practice. As a consultant, Hoy strives to share the evidence, practices, and methods that support PFCC culture in healthcare organizations.
In 2010, Hoy founded PFCC Partners to create a community of patients, families, providers, and healthcare organizations committed to improvement in the quality, safety, experience, and delivery of health care.
In these and all efforts, Hoy strives to build the infrastructure and capacity for healthcare organizations to engage all patients and families, from the bedside to the boardroom.
