Department Description
Responsible for ensuring that all medical records are maintained according to state and federal regulations, specifically HIPAA, and in compliance with JCAHO guidelines.

To obtain copies of Medical Records
You must fill out a Release of Information form and return it to us. You may receive a form the following ways:

Your first copy is free; however, each additional request for the same record(s) results in a charge of $1.00 per page.

In compliance with HIPAA guidelines, your records will be provided to you within thirty (30) days of the receipt of your Medical Records Request. While we strive to process your request sooner, due to the volume of requests received, it may require the full thirty (30) days.

HIPAA Compliancy
The Medical Records department upholds the utmost security of your medical records. Protected health information is only provided when a proper HIPAA-compliant release of information is obtained or for purposes of treatment, payment or operations. Please review our Notice of Privacy Practices for further information regarding the protection of your privacy as a patient.
