COVID-19 Information for Anyone Requesting a Medical Record

In an effort to protect the health and safety of our patients, families, visitors, and staff, our release of information department is no longer open to the public. To receive a copy of your child's medical record, please use the online records request tool below or download and complete the paper form below and submit it via email to HIMRecordRelease@CHKD. You may also mail or fax your completed form. 


Online Medical Records Request


Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters now offers an online records request tool that verifies your identity by asking for a photo of your driver's license, which can be taken via webcam or smartphone. This tool is available in both English and Spanish. There is no additional charge to use this service. 

This service is for requesting medical records from CHKD's main hospital campus, specialty and surgical providers only. If you need a medical record from your pediatrician, please visit MyCHKD.org.

Please note, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox are the recommended browsers for this application.
