You have the right to:

  • request a restriction on certain uses and disclosures of your information
  • inspect and copy your health record
  • amend your health record
  • obtain an accounting of disclosures of your health information
  • request communications of your health information by alternative means or at alternative locations

Our Responsibilities

Kadlec Regional Medical Center staff will:

  • maintain the privacy of your health information
  • provide you with a notice of our privacy practices and abide by the terms of this notice
  • notify you if we are unable to agree to a requested restriction
  • accommodate reasonable requests you may have to be contacted at alternate locations to protect your confidentiality.

We reserve the right to change our practices and to make the new provisions effective for all protected health information we maintain. Should our information practices change, we will make a revised notice available to you.
