Our top priority, however, is protecting the privacy and security of the patients we serve.

Visiting Our Facilities

We strictly adhere to federal guidelines regarding patient privacy as outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. To protect our patients' privacy, we require all reporters and photographers visiting our facilities to be escorted by a public affairs staff member. Media access may be limited or denied to any area of a facility at the discretion of the medical center director, the patients' health care team or individual physicians.

Our administrative hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
