Important Patient/Visitor Information
Health Care Proxy
The New York Health Care Proxy Law allows you to appoint someone you trust — for example, a family member or close friend – to make health care decisions for you if you lose the ability to make decisions yourself. By appointing a health care agent, you can make sure that health care providers follow your wishes. Information and Health Care Proxy forms are available from the New York State Department of Health.
If you wish to obtain a copy of your medical records or to authorize their release to a third party, please complete and submit this Health Information Authorization.
