Health Information Management

HIM maintains patient health information records. Patient information is available for:
  • use in patient care
  • release of information with patient consent for billing, insurance and continued health care

To Receive Your Medical Records:

  • Before the hospital can release medical records, an Authorization to Release Information form must be signed by the patient or his/her legal representative outlining specifically what is to be released and to whom. If the patient is under the age of 18, a parent may sign for a copy of the records in most circumstances. An authorization is valid for 60 days and must be completed each time records are requested.
  • The Authorization to Release Information form can be obtained by visiting the Health Information Management department between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. You also may request that the form be mailed to you by calling (304) 329-1400 x 1815. We will make every effort to provide your medical information as quickly as possible. However, keep in mind that most requests take several days to complete. Please try to request your information several days before you need your records.
