Patient Information

Our policy is to provide patient conditions to the media based on the privacy rules outlined in HIPAA. Media must provide the patient's name and the location of the facility where they are being treated. We do not provide conditions on patients who have been discharged or transferred to another facility.

Patient Privacy

Our top priority is ensuring patient privacy at all times. Any patient who will be interviewed, videotaped or photographed within NorthBay Medical Center, NorthBay VacaValley Hospital, NorthBay Cancer Center or any entity affiliated with NorthBay Healthcare must first sign a consent form authorizing the release of their personal health information. Members of the Public Affairs department are authorized to obtain consent.
