The Pembroke Regional Hospital is mandated under the Personal Health Information Protection Act or PHIPA to regularly collect personal health information from all patients receiving healthcare services. The information collected helps inform the medical team to better service the patient’s needs.

The information is usually collected from the patients themselves or from the person(s) acting on their behalf.
The personal health information collected may include, for example, name, date of birth, address, health history, records of your visits to Pembroke Regional Hospital and the care that you received during those visits. Occasionally, we collect personal health information about you from other sources if we have obtained your consent to do so or if the law permits.
