Patient Representation

To speak to an MSK patient representative, please call 212-639-7202.

Memorial Sloan Kettering patient representatives are here to advocate for you. We are committed to helping making sure that:

  • your privacy is protected
  • your rights are respected
  • your concerns are quickly and effectively addressed

Our representatives can speak on your behalf and represent your interests. We can also answer questions about hospital rules and procedures. We can be most helpful to you when you let us know about a situation while it is occurring rather than after it’s happened, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
