Parrish Medical Center respects your rights as a patient, recognizing that each patient is an individual with unique healthcare needs. Because of the importance of respecting each patient's personal dignity, the hospital strives to provide considerate, respectful care focused upon each patient's individual needs.

Notice of Privacy Practices | Download PDF 

As a patient at Parrish Medical Center, you have options for your care and treatment. Your doctors and other healthcare professionals will offer information and advice concerning appropriate, comprehensive medical care. At the same time, we realize that any stresses of worry, concern and discomfort may make understanding information and coming to decisions more difficult. As your caregivers, we will do our best to ensure a process that will enable you to make the decisions best for you.

Among the hospital's resources for assurance of considerate, respectful care is Parrish Medical Center's Ethics Committee, comprised of representatives from many professions and the community. The Ethics Committee aims to be a source of education, policy review and consultation for the hospital, physicians, patients and community on issues of medical ethics and dilemmas. You can contact the committee by speaking to your doctor or nurse, or the customer relations coordinator.
