The acknowledgement form is required per federal regulations. Signing the form only means that you have received the notice, and in no way affects the care you will receive at Mayo Clinic Health System – Franciscan Healthcare.
If you have any questions about the privacy notice or acknowledgement form, please contact the Privacy Officer at 608-392-4177.

“As part of our culture of respect, we understand your right to privacy as one of our patients. This privacy not only encompasses our relationship and interaction with you while at one of our facilities for care, but also the information we collect and keep for you as part of your care.”
