Services we offer

  • Digital library: We have a new digital library for patients, caregivers and family members with e-books and audiobooks on topics like meditation, yoga, nutrition during cancer treatment, advance care planning, and books for children to help cope with a parent’s diagnosis. Request a library card.
  • Free health care notary: Notary services are offered to our patients and their families for documents related to a patient’s health care, such as Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care (DPOAHC) and an Advance Health Care Directive (AD). In the interest of prioritizing your safety related to COVID-19, we ask that you make an appointment for notary services. Call or email us directly. Find out more information about advance care planning and download health care directives
