We Provide the Highest Quality and Most Compassionate Care for All Individuals

Health Sciences Libraries and Health Information Centers

Scottsdale Healthcare’s Health Sciences Libraries were established for physicians, staff members and all hospital personnel. Their purpose is to provide a collection of current print and electronic resources relevant to the healthcare field that support clinical, educational and research activities.

The Health Information Centers in the Health Sciences Libraries at Shea and Osborn, and the Werner Resource Center at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center provide patients, family members, and the greater Scottsdale community with reliable, scientifically-based medical information and health education so individuals can make informed decisions about their health and health care. Requests for personalized health information & research can be submitted through the Personalized Search Request form on the hospital's Internet page. Books and other materials may be searched via the hospital's online catalog.

The Scottsdale Healthcare Speakers' Bureau, a service provided through the Health Sciences Libraries, connects community groups in the Scottsdale area with physicians and other healthcare providers through health-related presentations that educate and inform the public about general health and wellness. Please contact the Speakers' Bureau Coordinator (below) to find out more about scheduling a health education program for your organization, association or group.
