How Can I Get My DCH Medical Records Myself?

- Visit the medical center
- Emailing your request
- Mailing your request
- Faxing your request
Visiting the Medical Center
The most common way of getting DCH medical records is visiting DCH Health System. If you can't remember exactly where the medical center is, plug the following into your GPS or favorite navigation app:
DCH Regional Medical Center
809 University Blvd. E.
Tuscaloosa, AL 35401
It is very important that you plug in the above address, because there are several DCH locations throughout the state, including the:
- Northport Medical Center
- Fayette Medical Center
- SpineCare Center
- FHC Medical Clinic - Millport
- Cardiac Electrophysiology of Alabama Center
- West Alabama Urology Associates
- FMC Medical Clinic - Fayette
- West Alabama Cardiac Surgery Center
Emailing Your Request
If you want to email your request for medical records, you can do so by sending your medical records release form and a copy of your state-issued identification to email@example.com. Just be sure that you scan the copy of your identification to get it onto your computer. If you take a picture with your phone, it may not be clear enough, delaying the receipt of your medical records.
Mailing Your Request
It is also possible to request the release of your medical records, including electronic health records, by mailing in your release form and a copy of proof of identification. This can be accomplished by mailing the requisite paperwork to their address:
Faxing Your Request
To fax your request to have your medical records released you can find their number below, don't forget to send a copy of your state-issued ID, as well.
Take care to not use the fax number for Northport Medical Center or Fayette Medical Center. While these medical facilities fall under the DCH umbrella, it will take longer for your request to be processed if you send the fax to the wrong number.

- The date of the release of medical records request
- Your social security number
- Your contact info, including your phone number, home address, and email address
Can I Get Electronic Health Records Released by DCH?
Yes! You can absolutely get electronic health records released by DCH. When you're requesting the release of your medical records, be sure to provide the address that you want the information sent to if you need to send it to a lawyer, school nurse, or doctor at another healthcare facility.
If you just want to be able to see your medical records online, you can fill out a Patient Portal Access Form and email it, mail it, or fax it after it is completed in legible handwriting. If you want to drop off your paperwork in person, simply bring your identification and the completed form to the HealthCare Management or Medical Records department at your local DCH hospital. Once your form has been processed, you can access an electronic copy of your medical records through the Patient Portal.
