Requesting Medical Records

Medical records include a patient’s medical history, lab, treatment reports and any other medical services provided by the hospital. Patients at Deckerville Community Hospital can obtain copies of their medical records by submitting a Medical Information Release Authorization form (PDF) to Deckerville Community Hospital Health Information Department.

You may receive your medical records by mail or your secure Microsoft® HealthVault™ account. If you request electronic records, you will receive a link via email with access to a secure delivery server.

To request your patient medical record:

  2. Print and sign the completed form.
  3. Return the form to Deckerville Community Hospital - HIM Department.
