Notice of Privacy Practices

Your health is a personal matter. As your health care provider, we work hard to protect your privacy.

As part of our efforts to protect your privacy and keep your personal health information confidential, we’ve updated our privacy policy and have begun making it available to you when you come to our facility for care. Our privacy policy, or Notice of Privacy Practices describes the ways in which we both use and protect your health information.

It explains your rights to inspect, copy and amend your medical information. It also outlines your rights to restrict or limit how we use and share your health information.

Please be assured that the GCMC staff and volunteers have been trained to be sensitive about confidentiality and patient privacy. We restrict the release of information about you to only those who need to know. State and federal laws regulate the use and release of information to those who provide, pay for and improve your care. We also maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your health information.

When you are a patient at GCMC, please let us know throughout your care if you have any questions or concerns about your privacy. Patient privacy, like patient satisfaction, is very important to us.
