Patients & Visitors:
The Health Information Management Department (formerly called Medical Records) is the keeper of patient health information. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
TO OBTAIN YOUR RECORDS:
To obtain a copy of your records, it is necessary to submit by mail or in person a signed copy of the Authorization for Release of Medical Records form. NJ and Federal regulations require a release to be signed before information can be released. This form can be viewed then printed from this web site by clicking the following link.
Release of Information Authorization Form
If you cannot download this form please call (973) 579-8365 and a copy will be sent to you. Please include your name, date of birth, and address. By law, no information can be released unless the form is completely filled out, including specific dates of service, and properly signed and dated.
If you are requesting material containing sensitive information, such as mental health, or drug or alcohol abuse records, you will need to circle or document specifically what kind of records you are requesting. To obtain a copy of your x-rays films, please contact the Department of Radiology at (973) 579-8720.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
Once the department receives the Authorization Release Form, it could take up to 30 business days for the record to be photocopied and mailed. There is no charge for continuum of care, however, for other purposes there may be a copying fee.
