Medical Records

A medical record is maintained for every individual evaluated or treated at Delano Regional Medical Center (DRMC). The medical record documents the course of your care and treatment received within the facilities of DRMC and may assist in continuity of your care as well as other purposes.

The medical record is the property of the hospital and is maintained for your benefit as well as that of the medical staff and DRMC. It is the responsibility of DRMC to safeguard the record and the confidentiality of the information contained within. Written consent by you will allow release of medical information to persons not otherwise authorized to receive this information.

The Medical Records Department at DRMC is located in the Medical Arts Building next to the hospital in Suite 305 on the third floor. It is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

To request copies of your medical record following discharge, you may contact the Medical Records Department at 661-721-5244 within the hours listed above.

There may be a fee associated with processing a request for medical records.

An authorization for release of medical information may be sent to you upon your request or you may print it from the link below. Upon receipt of a completed signed authorization form, medical records will then be sent to the facility or person specified on the authorization form.
