Medical Records

A complete inpatient, outpatient surgery or emergency record of each patient's care, treatment and progress is kept in the Medical Records Department. You have the right to expect that medical information regarding your care will be treated as confidential, and McLaren Macomb has the obligation to safeguard your records against unauthorized disclosure.

All requests for copies of reports, medical records or radiology films must be made in writing, and the request must be signed by the patient or his/her legal guardian. Authorization forms to release medical records are available by contacting the Medical Records Department at (586) 493-8400.

Please note that radiology films must be requested in writing, and the request must be signed by the patient or his/her legal guardian, through the Diagnostic Imaging Department at (586) 493-8149.

A request for medical record information requires that the patient and/or legal guardian signs and provides an authorization for release of information form prior to processing the request. 

Office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. -- 4:30 p.m.
Medical Records is closed on weekends and holidays.

How To Obtain Copies of Your Medical Records

The first step is to fill out the Authorization to Release Medical Records form. Be sure to include the specific dates of service needed, specific type of information along with the reason for the request.  The form can be obtained at:

You will be asked to pay a copying fee for records. See fee schedule below. The requestor will receive an invoice in the mail and records will be mailed or available for pick up once payment is received.  Please note that it may take up to 14 business days to process and complete your request. You will be notified when your request has been processed and copies are ready for pick up. Picture identification is also required when you pick up your records.
