How to Access Medical Records

Consistent with current law, McLean Hospital policy allows patients, their families, legal guardians or healthcare agents to request permission to either inspect a hospital record or obtain a copy of the discharge summary or other portion(s) of a record. A request must be accompanied by the consent of the patient or other legally authorized person. Although most requests are granted, if a determination is made that inspection will result in serious harm to the patient, such access will be denied.

To request a copy of your medical record you may either download the McLean Hospital Authorization For Release of Medical Records Form (PDF) or send a written request that includes:

  • Patient name
  • Mailing address
  • Date of birth
  • Phone number
  • Dates of service
  • Where you received treatment
  • Indicate the specific information that you are seeking

Please sign and date your release form or written request and send to:

McLean Hospital
Health Information Management Department

115 Mill Street, Mail Stop 139
