Medical Records Requests

A patient, or his/her legal representative, may inspect and/or obtain a copy of their medical records, or have copies of medical records sent to another facility.

We require a completed and signed Authorization for Release of Health Information form before releasing any documents to anyone, including the patient.

If you have questions about this process, please feel free to contact the Health Information Management department directly at 419-557-7435.

To Request a Copy of Your Medical Records

  • Print the form: Authorization for Release of Medical Information.
  • The form must be completed, dated and signed by the patient.
  • We ask that you specify what components of your medical records you wish to obtain.
  • Photo ID is required (records will not be released without this).
  • One additional form of ID (such as a credit card, Social Security card, utility bill or library card) are required.
  • Individuals other than the patient (such as a guardian or a proxy under a power of attorney) must have documentation of authority to sign.

If you have any questions regarding release of health information, please call 419.557.7435.
