Our first priority is the safety and privacy of our patients. Under the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), strict restrictions have been placed on the information that can be released to the media about a patient's condition. All inquiries must contain the patient's name, and the patient or patients must be listed in the hospital directory for the information to be released. While a one-word statement of condition may be given, know that the patient does have the option of "opting out" so that no information is made public.
Our Public Relations team handles all requests for patient conditions.
