Practices accepting online requests
If your practice is not listed, please download our Medical Records Release Form. If you would like to receive a copy of your child’s hospital medical records, please follow the instructions on our Medical Records site.
Only a parent or legal guardian can request a copy of your child’s medical records. Copies of the medical records are processed within 15 business days from your request. The practice will inform you if it cannot be processed within that time frame.
Patient fees for copies of medical records
There is no charge for releasing copies of your medical record directly to another healthcare provider and we will forward the requested copies for you. However, if you are requesting copies for your own records, there is a nominal processing charge and our fee schedule is shown below. We will contact you when your copies are ready for pickup, at which time payment may be made by cash, check or credit card.
