Your medical record is kept in Health Information. These records are retained in compliance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and are not released without the patient’s written consent, except as required by law. Please allow 7-10 business days for the process of your record request. You may pick up your records between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding all federal holidays. Please bring photo identification with you. If someone is picking up the records for you, they must have written permission from you on our release forms identifying them to do so and they must provide photo identification. Please include any POA paperwork when submitting your record request for a patient that you are a guardian for.
Any STAT requests made after 4:00 p.m. will be taken care of on the following business day. There may also be charge for the cost of copying medical records.
We do not take verbal requests from patients!
