Looking to obtain a copy of your medical record?

Patient Financial Assistance

For many patients, money is tight. This, however, should not mean that you are not able to receive the medical attention that you deserve. By providing a Patient Financial Assistance Program, we are able to give eligible patients the assistance that they need to receive necessary medical attention. In some cases, those who are eligible don't pay at all; in other situations they only need make a partial payment.

Patient Rights

When visiting Mission Hospital, you can be confident knowing that you will have basic rights that will be cared for and respected – regardless of your ethnic, religious or economic background.
