At St. Joseph Health, protecting our patients’ confidentiality and privacy is a top priority. Safeguarding your health information is not only a legal requirement, but also an important ethical obligation to which we dedicate significant resources.
As a healthcare provider, St. Joseph Health is entrusted with clinical information regarding our patients. We consider this both an honor and a tremendous responsibility. We recognize that medical and billing records are highly confidential and must be treated with great respect and care by all staff with access to this information.
The St. Joseph Health policy regarding confidentiality of protected healthcare information reflects our strong commitment to protecting the confidentiality of our patients' medical records and clinical information. It’s a detailed policy which is reinforced at every opportunity. We use the latest technology and knowledge to best protect your information.
The "Notice of Privacy Practices" booklet, given to every St. Joseph Health patient, explains our policies in greater detail. Also available in Spanish.
