Patient Bill of Rights

When it comes to delivery of your health care and service at the Center, you have certain rights and expectations.

This section explains your rights and some of our responsibilities to help you.

The River Valley Health & Dental Center (“Center”) is committed to providing high quality care that is fair, responsive, and accountable to the needs of our patients and their families. We are committed to providing our patients and their families with a means to not only receive appropriate health care and related services, but also to address any concerns they may have regarding such services.


We encourage all of our patients to be aware of their rights and responsibilities and to take an active role in maintaining and improving their health and strengthening their relationships with our health care providers.


Please ask us questions that you might have. You may also contact the Compliance Officer for any further questions, issues or concerns that you may have.
