Please do not send requests through email. We cannot honor email requests because a signature is required to release medical information.
The Release of Information office will not provide records without a written request by the patient, the parent of a minor patient or a legal representative. After the request is received, the Release of Information office will try to provide an answer within 15 business days. Copies of records are faxed only for emergency medical treatment.
There are fees to obtain copies of records. These fees must be paid before the records are mailed to the requester.
