Contact the Medical Records office for more information.
Your medical record contains information on your health history and the care and
treatment you received during your stay at Novant Health Thomasville Medical Center.
The medical record is the property of the hospital and it must be completed by all
physicians involved in the patient's care before it can be copied and released to
the patient. Therefore, the patient may not receive a copy of his/her medical record
upon discharge from the hospital.
Patient-related information may be released to a physician or medical facility for
follow-up and continued care of the patient, when needed.
Your medical record is a confidential document so your written authorization is
required before a copy can be released. If you're age 18 or older, you can get an authorization
form from the Medical Records Office. A fee may be required to provide your records. Here is more information on health information disclosure »
