Medical Records

The medical record of every patient treated at the hospital is maintained by the Health Information Management Department. The Health Information Management department is located on the first floor across from the outpatient registration area near the outpatient lab and radiology area. If you wish to have copies of your medical records released, please provide a 72-hour advance notice. You may request copies of your medical record between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, by calling 219-703-1200. We will need your signed authorization for any release. As a service to our patients, copies of medical records for continuing medical care are provided free of charge if we send directly to the provider. In accordance with state law, copies of medical records requested for any reason other than continuing medical care require a nominal fee per page copy fee assessed for each page requested. Your medical records can also be burned to a CD for your use or to take to another care provider.
