The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule describes privacy standards that protect your medical and health information. It identifies your rights to access and control your health information. It outlines how various health providers may use and disclose your protected health information to carry out treatment, payment or health care operations and for other purposes that are permitted or required by law. Effective April 14, 2003, all health care facilities and physicians will be required to comply with the new federal privacy rules concerning how your health information is shared, stored and utilized. The Glen Ridge Surgicenter considers protecting your privacy an important part of caring for you. If you have any questions regarding these privacy policies, you may contact our Privacy Contact, Carey P. Smith at (973) 275-1860 or
