What you say in here…stays in here!
intended to be kept secret.
You or a friend may be thinking about scheduling an appointment or walking into Expectations Women’s Center. However, you hesitate to do so because you question the confidentiality of our services. Questions like… Will you tell my mom and dad? Will my friends find out? What will you do with my information?
The three questions stated above are great questions, and Expectations Women’s Center understands why you would have them. When you are feeling you could be pregnant, or you are working through the emotions of having an abortion in the past, the last thing you want is for that information to be shared…with anyone.
EWC wants to make sure you fully understand our confidentiality commitment to you. You are more than just our client. You are a beautiful person who may be facing a difficult situation or an unplanned pregnancy. We want to set your mind at ease.
Here is our commitment to you and keeping your information confidential:
From the moment you walk in our doors, you enter into a safe place where you will be greeted by our friendly staff. We are committed to serving every single person with care and integrity.
Client information will NOT be given over the phone to anyone unless written permission has been obtained.
Your information is held in strict and absolute confidence. Releases and permissions are obtained appropriately.
Confidentiality can be broken only in five instances:
- With the client’s permission
- When the client is a minor being physically or sexually abused
- When the client is at risk of harming self or others
- When the information is compelled by law; subpoena, or court order.
- If client becomes gravely disabled while on the premises of the center.
We hope this helps you make the decision to contact us! We’re here for you and if you have any additional questions for us please give us a call 570-523-6872 or 570-321-8240!
