Medical Records

Medical Records maintains the confidentiality of thousands of patient records. These records include lab and imaging reports, emergency visits, inpatient and surgical stays, and all other procedures offered to patients in our facilities.

You may obtain a copy of your medical records at any time. This can be done by signing an Authorization for Release of Information form and submitting the signed form to Registration staff in the lobby or directly to the Health Information Services Department. To learn more, call 989-348-0341.

To obtain radiology images, contact the Radiology Department at 989-348-0350. A disc and a copy of the radiology report will be made.

Personal identification or a signed consent from the patient authorizing the pick-up is required.

  • Transcribes dictated reports from various hospital departments
