Privacy And Access To Information

At Kingston Health Sciences Centre, protecting your privacy is a fundamental commitment to treating our patients with dignity, compassion and social responsibility. It is also the law. 

The KHSC Privacy Office is a resource shared between the Kingston General Hospital site and the Hotel Dieu Hospital site in Kingston. As part of the integration, KHSC will assume legal custody of all personal health information and medical records and will follow all existing processes to ensure we are protecting everyone’s personal health information. Since most patients in the Kingston and surrounding area may need both outpatient and inpatient care provided by both organizations, information about a patients visits to either hospital are stored together and form a single medical record.
