Information Is Powerful Medicine

The mission of the Hope Fox Eccles Health Library is to ensure that all patients, their families, and the general community have access to the resources they need to make informed choices about their health care. Our staff can guide you to information tailored to your learning-style preferences and language needs.


We offer free access to hundreds of online medical resources that focus on prevention, wellness, coping, and support. We will introduce you to quality resources on our website that you can turn to when a health question arises in the future.
