Patient Privacy Pledge

At Conemaugh Health System, we understand that information about each patient's health is personal. We are committed to protecting the privacy of this information. Each time a patient visits one of the facilities within Conemaugh Health System, a record is created for the visit. Generally, the record contains information including symptoms, examination and test results, diagnosis, plan for future care and treatment, and billing-related information. This record is needed to provide each patient with quality care and to comply with legal requirements.

The Conemaugh Health System Patient Privacy Pledge applies to all records of care generated by any of the facilities within the Conemaugh Health System, whether made by Conemaugh Health System personnel, physicians, or other individuals authorized to access or document in a patient's health record. Each physician may have additional policies or notices regarding the use and disclosure of health information.
