Discrimination is against the law

Great River Health System prohibits discrimination based on age, race, color, creed, ethnic or national origin, marital status, religion, culture, language, physical or mental disability, socioeconomic status, status with respect to public assistance, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression. Great River Health System includes all services provided by Great River Medical Center and Great River Physicians and Clinics.

Great River Health System provides free:

  • Aids and services to people with disabilities so that they can communicate effectively. These aids and services include qualified sign language interpreters and written information in other formats (large print, audio, accessible electronic formats).

If you need these services, contact your nurse or care provider.
