Request Medical Records

Please see below for information on how to request medical records, birth certificates, or certificates of still birth.

Medical Records

Access to medical records requires the patient's authorization. If the patient is deceased, an authorization form must be completed by the executor of the estate and sent with a copy of the patient's death certificate.

Authorization forms can be downloaded by clicking on the hospital name below. Patients of our primary care centers should choose the hospital affiliated with the office visited from the list below.

Please note that if records are requested from a Catholic Health facility, there may be a fee involved. If the request is sent directly to your medical provider, there should be no charge.

Birth Records

Your birth records are kept in the Clerk's Office in the municipality in which you were born.
