Patient Rights and Privacy Notices

Hospital staff and practitioners who provide care in the hospital shall comply with these directives. All patients’ rights apply to the person who has legal responsibility to make decisions regarding medical care on your behalf. Download an Advance Health Care Directive form in English or Spanish.
