Patients often ask, "How can I find information about my health condition or other health related issues?" Because informed patients are better able to make decisions regarding their health care, the Health Information Resource Center is committed to helping patients and patient families find current, authoritative health information and services relevant to their needs.
Located on the third floor of the USA Medical Center, the HIRC is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. for patients, patient families, and health care professionals. You can walk in, call or email us with an information request. You also may ask your doctor or nurse for an "Information Prescription." Either way, we will fill the prescription by delivering the information to your patient room.
If you prefer, you may search for yourself using any of the following resources:
A full range of library resources and services is available to you as health care professionals.
