Protecting Our Patients’ Privacy
Your Confidentiality Is Important to Us
At Massachusetts General Hospital, we place highest priority on the patient’s right to privacy with regard to their healthcare. We also recognize the added sensitivities for patients experiencing burn or other traumatic injuries. Our medical and office staff are trained to protect your private health information, and our patient care and waiting areas are intentionally discreet. We often care for high-profile patients who require heightened confidentiality because of media or legal interest, so you can feel comfortable that we have experience in protecting patients’ identities and health information.
