Medical Records Request
Gila Regional's Medical Records or Health Information Management (HIM) department employs transcriptionists, coders, scanners and medical records file clerks to transcribe, code and file patient "history and physical" notes, progress notes, radiology notes, operative notes, and discharge notes, and place them in patient files.
Monday through Friday: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Gila Regional Medical Center, 1st Floor, next to Infusion Services.
How To Get Copies
If you need a copy of your medical records, or some portion of them, you need to come in person to the Medical Records / HIM Office on the first floor of Gila Regional Medical Center, and sign a release.
- Bring a picture ID with you
- Allow about 15 minutes for the materials you have requested to be found and copied.
Patients who are homebound may send a written note signed by the patient and a witness, in order to enable someone other than the patient to pick up the patient's medical records.
Physicians and other healthcare providers who call for patient records in order to ensure continuum of care are automatically faxed or e-mailed a copy of the requested materials.
For Your Baby
