The confidentiality and privacy of our patients and their families is our top priority.
Because of federal privacy regulations (HIPAA), it is essential that members of the news media provide a patient's first and last name when calling. A patient can opt out of providing information altogether.
For an explanation of the rules that govern release of patient information, please refer to the Washington State Hospital Association Guide for Cooperation (PDF)
