Patient Access to Medical Records, Imaging, and Billing Information
Summit Pacific Medical Center MyChart is a free, secure and convenient way to access many types of personal health information in your inpatient and outpatient medical records, including test results, medical history, medications, immunizations and more.
If you need more information than you can find in MyChart, you can easily request copies of your SPMC medical records and radiology images.
When requesting records on behalf of a patient, please include a copy of your Power of Attorney. To learn more about how SPMC protects your privacy and discloses your information, see the Notice of Privacy Practices.
SPMC has partnered with Vital Records Control to release protected health information in compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule on behalf of the hospital and clinics. If you are following up on a release of health information request, or have any questions, please reference Summit Pacific Medical Center when you call.

Requesting Health Information for Another Person
If you are not the patient, you will need to provide more information about your right to receive the records of someone else. We may ask for items like a Power of Attorney or, if the patient is deceased, a death certificate.
Processing Fees for Medical Records
There is no charge for continuity of care, when your medical records are sent to a physician, clinic, hospital or other healthcare provider. For reasons other than continuity of care there may be a reasonable, cost-based fee.
Continuity of Care Requests
For health care providers needing patient medical records for treatment purposes or continuation of care, the following information is required to process a request:
The minimum information needed for a COC request:
- The request must be your organization’s letterhead with a phone and fax number, a contact person’s name, email address, and written legibly to reduce processing time.
- The first and last name of the patient.
- The patient’s DOB.
- The exact information/records being requested. If the request is for multiple DOS and is over a 25-page count, the records will be emailed or regular mailed, unless other arrangements are made.
If you need a copy of a diagnostic image, such as x-rays, ultrasounds, and scans, complete and sign an Authorization to Use, Disclose, and Release Protected Health Information.
Authorization Fax: 360-346-2156
If you need a copy of billing records, such as an itemized statement, complete and sign an Authorization to Use, Disclose, and Release Protected Health Information.
