Health Information Management & Medical Records 

There are times when it is necessary to request your medical records.  According to Massachusetts General Laws, you have the right to view your own record.  You may also receive a copy upon payment.  In order to do this, you must present identification and sign an authorization form.  The review and/or copying is done under the supervision of the Health Information Management Department.

To contact the Health Information Management Department at one of our hospitals, please refer to the address and phone numbers below.  If you are picking up your records, please contact the respective facility prior to your visit.
