  2. Submit a letter of request. In order for us to help you, the letter must contain the following information:

    2. The purpose of your request: legal, medical follow-up, insurance, or personal
    3. The name/address of the person who is to receive the records

St. Joseph, MI 49085


Fax the form or letter to 269-982-4305

Most requests require 48 hours to process. There may also be a fee charged for providing this information depending on the nature of the request. For more information, please call 269-983-8625 during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

You can only request your own medical records, unless you are requesting a copy of a minor child/children (under 18 years of age). In the event that a patient is deceased, the personal representative appointed by the court can request copies of records. The personal representative must mail in a copy of the court paperwork in addition to the written request.

Each subsequent request of medical records requires an additional written request, form or authorization.
