Keep up to date with access to your medical files:
It’s your health, so we want you to be able to easily access your health care records. With My Health Records, you can find when the last test or procedure was done and get a copy of the results when you need them. My Health Records is available at whatever time of day you need it. With an account, your access will include selected data from your West Tennessee Healthcare Core Hospital or Clinic electronic medical records, including lab test results, medications, immunizations, patient education, and continuity of care documents.
West Tennessee Healthcare is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of patient health information. Copies of your medical records can be sent to your physician or to another hospital without charge. Written consent and a small fee are required to release copies of medical records to patients and we ask your understanding in allowing time for the records to be completed. Please call 731-541-7800. The Health Information Management Release of Information office is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Closed Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays.
My Health Records is a FREE online tool that provides a simple and secure way to see your records and make informed decisions about your future health care needs.

Request Copies of Medical Records
Copies of your medical records can be sent to your physician or to another hospital without charge. If you are a patient (or a patient’s personal representative) and would like access to your medical records, please complete the “Request for Access to Protected Health Information” form. We do charge for copies of the records; the most we charge a patient is $6.50, and we ask your understanding in allowing time for the records to be completed. If you have questions, please call and speak with the Health Information Management Department of the facility you are requesting records from. Jackson-Madison County General Hospital’s number is 731-541-7982, and the office is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Closed Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays.
The “Authorization for Release of Protected Health Information” form is also attached, but it is only used if a third party is requesting a patient’s records and the patient does not initiate this request. (For instance, if an attorney requests copies of records.)
If you would like to request medical records via e-mail, you may send a secure e-mail to:
