Services

The Health Information Management Department at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County maintains and retrieves patients' medical records. Patient Privacy is a priority at MHSC. We take pride in protecting your medical records.


Guidelines for Medical Records Requests

All requests for copies of medical records must be received in writing. You must present a photo identification before we will release a copy of your records. If the patient is a minor (less than 18 years of age), a parent or the legal guardian must sign the authorization, also presenting a photo identification. Urgent patient care requests may be faxed to (307)352-8175.


Birth Certificate Copies

Copies of birth certificates must be requested through Wyoming Vital Records. Their number is (307)777-7591.

Fees for obtaining Protected Health Information are as follows:

  • Copy fees (for patients only).
    • First 10 pages are free, then .10 cents per page for anything above that.
    • Microfilm records - $20 retrieval fee, then .25 cents per page.
Except when requested by a physician's office, or in an emergency, all records will be mailed. You may mail your completed authorization form to Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County or fax it to our Health Information Management staff at (307)352-8175. Your records will be ready in approximately 10 business days. Please call us if you would like to arrange pick-up of your records.
