How to Obtain Copies of Your Medical Records
Requests for copies of patient medical records for personal use or requests to release records to a third party are handled by the Health Information Management Department. The department is located on the 1st floor of the hospital, right off the main lobby.
Patients who request copies of their records for personal use may be charged a copy fee of $1.00 per page for the first 25 pages, $.50 each for pages 26 through 350 and $.25 per page thereafter. The fee schedule for these copies as well as the patient request forms are available from the Health Information Management Department.
Patients who request copies of their records to be released to a third party are required to sign an authorization form including the name and address of the intended recipient, the treatment dates and the reason for the request. This form is available from the Health Information Management Department.
The department is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 4:30PM.
