Your health is an intensely personal matter. As your healthcare provider, we recognize that and work hard to ensure your privacy.
In addition, this policy identifies our privacy officer—the person we have designated to ensure that our facilities are equipped and our staff trained to protect your privacy. The privacy officer reviews any special requests and helps resolve any questions or concerns you may have.
We train our staff and volunteers to be sensitive about confidentiality and patient privacy. Please be assured that, as much as possible, we will limit both the amount of information about you that is shared and the number of people with whom it is shared. We restrict access to information about you to only those who need to know that information under state and federal laws and regulations and to those who provide, pay for and improve your care.
We also maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your health information.
Please let us know if you have any questions about how your health information is being used and if you have any concerns about your privacy. Privacy, like patient satisfaction, is very important to us.
