Notice of Privacy Practices

Effective April 14, 2003 - Each time you visit a hospital / long-term care facility, physician, or other healthcare provider, a record of your visit is made. Typically, this record contains your symptoms, examination and test results, diagnoses, treatment, plan for future care or treatment, and billing-related information. This notice applies to all the records of your care generated by the hospital / long-term care facility, whether made by hospital / long-term care facility personnel, agents of the hospital / long term care facility, or your personal doctor. Your personal healthcare provider may have different policies or notices regarding the  use and disclosure of your medical information created in the office or clinic.
