Disclosure of Health Information

Your family physician is considered an important member of the health care team. If you are receiving care at our hospital, a copy of your treatment record and/or diagnostic test result will be forwarded to your family physician unless you request otherwise. If you need to have information forwarded to another physician, you need to fill out the Request to Access Personal Health Information form and mail or fax it to us as shown on the form.


To ensure the privacy of our patients, visitors and staff, consent is required for any photograph, recording or interview.  Without consent, the use of photography, video or sound recordings are not permitted on hospital property.
