Advance Directives:

Your Right to Direct Your Health Care

Our core values of Respect, Care, Competence and Joy are lived by all who work here and felt by all who use our services. At HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital, we want you to know you have the right to make decisions about your healthcare. This includes the right to accept or refuse medical or surgical treatment and the right to direct future healthcare decisions if you become unable to do so yourself. You can do this by completing an Advance Directive. 

We honor Advance Directives

An “Advance Directive” is a written statement naming a person of your choice to make health care decisions on your behalf.  The Advance Directive will empower your selected representative to make health care decisions should you become physically or mentally unable to do so independently. If you have questions or would like to learn more about advance directives, please call (920) 451-7265.
