Medical Records Request

As a patient, you have the right to access your medical records. Here you'll find instructions and a convenient form to help us process your request.

Providence strongly encourages patients to transfer their medical records and images to their health care providers. This is an important step to ensure that your providers have a full understanding of your health history when they treat you.

Please note that you will need to transfer your records even if you are staying with your existing provider, as he or she are no longer be employed by Providence.

Patients that need to request a copy of their medical records will be required to complete a General Medical Records Release and Authorization for Disclosure of Protected Health Information form.

The form must be filled out and signed. You may mail the completed form to:
