Health Care Directives

The North Dakota law regarding "health care directives" is found in Chapter 23-06.5 of the North Dakota Century Code.

A health care directive is a legal document that permits you to:

  1. Give instructions about any aspect of your health care;
  2. Choose a person to make health care decisions for you;
  3. Give instructions about specific medical treatments you do or do not want;
  4. Give other instructions, including where you wish to die; or
  5. Making an anatomical gift.

Upon request, Pembina County Memorial Hospital will provide you with information on health care directives, or click here to view the North Dakota Healthcare Directives on the ND Department of Human Services website. Another option is Honoring Choices, copy and paste to view

Student Health Insurance Guide

Pembina County Memorial Hospital Association (PCMHA) would like young adults in our area to make informed decisions when it comes to healthcare.


High school students making the transition to college can encounter many challenges, one of which is health insurance. While some might stay under their parent's plan, many are responsible for getting their own health insurance for the first time. This can be a complicated process on top of everything else a freshman needs to understand in their beginning college years. To assist, PCMHA is offering a guide to help ease the transition to college for young students. 


This easy-to-read guide is designed to help students understand the Affordable Care Act, navigate through the myriad of plans, and most importantly identify various strategies they can utilize in managing their health care expenses.
