Medical Records

Confidentiality of Information
All patient health care information at St. Francis Medical Center is confidential and protected by State and Federal laws and HIPAA regulations.

How Do I Obtain My Medical Records?
A patient, or his/her legal representative, may inspect and/or obtain a copy of their medical record, or have copies of medical records sent to another facility.

St. Francis Medical Center requires a completed, signed and dated Authorization for Release of Health Information form before releasing documents to anyone, including the patient. Because a signature is required to release your information, we are not able to process requests received by telephone or email. When you pick up your records in person, we will ask for photo identification. There may be a fee for providing copies of the medical record. Please click here for printable version of the Authorization for Release of Health information.

If you have any questions regarding release of health information, please call (318) 966-4745. Our hours of operation are Monday - Friday, 8 am - 4 pm.
