Social Media Policy

Thank you for visiting the social media arm of the Comanche County Memorial Hospital (“CCMH”) website.  We encourage and look forward to your interaction with our online community.  We ask that before you begin you take a moment to review the CCMH Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions, as those agreements govern online interactions with CCMH.

Private Information

CCMH reminds you that information posted on the internet should not be considered private.  Please use caution when discussing medical or other personal issues and, as practical, always refrain from disclosing personally identifiable information, i.e., your name, location, social security number, medical information, financial information or other information you do not wish to be publicly known.


Not a Substitute for Medical Advice

CCMH reminds you that online information is not to take the place of getting advice from your doctor on diagnosis or treatment.  No information found online is or can be a substitute for sound medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

Any questions you may have about a medical problem should be addressed through your doctor or other qualified caregiver.  If you think you may have a medical emergency, immediately consult your doctor or dial 911.
