You may obtain radiology images from the imaging department. To do this, please call in advance. You will need to sign a release of information form when you pick up the copies. The reports come from the health information management department.
Do you have a copy of my advance directive?

Health Information Exchange
Opting out of the Health Information Exchange (HIE) may delay access to important medical information; however, participation in the HIE is your choice. If you choose to opt-out and not participate in the HIE, your health information will not be shared among health care providers through the HIE. Instead, your providers will continue to share information via previously established methods, such as phone, fax, mail or through an existing electronic medical record. This also means that opting out of the HIE does not affect the sharing of information by providers using the same electronic medical record. It applies only to the HIE.
To opt-out, download the form at the below link and follow the instructions on the form.

please call 336-527-7000.
