  • Massachusetts Health Care Proxy Information: We encourage all patients to prepare a health care proxy, which identifies the person you have chosen to express your wishes regarding your health care in the event that you are unable to speak for yourself.
  • Our Commitment to Safe Care: Research on safe medical care shows that the best results are achieved when patients play an active role in their care. Learn how you can help to ensure you get the safest care possible.
