Is Office 365 secure enough for a healthcare organization?

The organization in question is small, and just starting-up, but is looking for a reliable document processing systems that enables easy access to their files and documents from anywhere.
1. I understand that Office 365 comes with some cloud space. How much space is this?
2. Is it okay, by current health information standards to store health related files in the Office 365 cloud space?
3. Can the associated cloud space for Office 365 be used to store other types of files, like images, PDFs and so on?

The organization is trying to avoid installing an in-house server and also avoid having to hire an IT person. Any other recommendations are very welcome.

Just a few questions:
Can you afford to loose your data to the PATRIOT-act & not knowing about it?
Is your data encrypted from where you type it onto the servers without your
hosting provider having a key? (Having to to a key in a webinterface means
you just gave your key away the the webserver provider.)

So using some iscsi storage using true crypt to access it might be safe.
Have you looked into LibreOffice  (continued from OpenOffice)?
