At Payson Regional Medical Center, we want our patients to understand their rights to make medical treatment decisions. The hospital has formal policies to ensure that your wishes about treatment will be followed. Arizona law gives you the ability to insure that your healthcare wishes are known and considered if you become unable to make these decisions for yourself.
The links below will take you to the Arizona Department of State and Arizona Attorney General's Office websites. These websites will further explain advanced directives, and/or allow you to download documents to create your own Advance Directive. The Arizona Advance Directive Registry allows you to upload your Advance Directive to the state registry and store your documents.

If you prefer, you can stop by the Main Registration desk here at the hospital and pick up a packet of forms to help you understand how to create your Advance Directive. This information is free and available during regular business hours.
