Patient Bill of Rights and Responsibilities

The health care facilities within Penn Medicine are committed to delivering quality medical care to patients and to making their stay as pleasant as possible.

The following "Statement of Patient's Rights," endorsed by the administration and staff of our facilities, applies to all patients. In the event that patients are unable to exercise these rights on their own behalf, then these rights are applicable to their designated/legal representative.

As it is Penn Medicine's goal to provide medical care that is effective and considerate within the health system's capacity, mission, and philosophy, applicable law and regulation, we submit these to patients as a statement of Penn Medicine's policy.
