Request Medical Records

Are you interested in printing or viewing your laboratory results, radiology reports and a summary of your immunizations, medications and allergies? This option is free and available 24/7 on the Patient Portal.


If you would like to request a physical copy of your medical record from Health Information Management, please download an Authorization for Release of Health Information below. An Authorization for Release of Health Information is required for any use or disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI).


The patient must sign the authorization unless the patient is a minor or declared physically or mentally incompetent. If the patient is a minor, one of the patient’s parents would sign the authorization. If the patient is mentally or physically incompetent the patient’s legal guardian would sign the authorization and provide a copy of the Durable Power of Attorney of Health Care. If requesting records on a deceased patient, please see requirements on the Authorization for Release of Health Information.


Mail or fax the completed form to the Health Information Management office. You may also complete the Authorization for Release of Health Information form in person at our office during business hours. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8:30 – 4:30 pm. Closed weekends and holidays.
