Your Medical Information

Your Medical Information

We understand that your medical information is personal, and Winona Health is committed to protecting it.

Your Health Record
Upon your visit, we create a record of the care and services you receive. We need this record to provide you with quality care and to comply with certain legal requirements. This record will contain all information generated by Winona Health, including care at the hospital, clinic and senior services.

Obtaining Copies of Your Health Information
You, our patient, have the right to obtain a copy of your health information. Upon your written request, Winona Health will provide copies of your record for a small fee, or at no cost if it is needed for current medical care purposes.

A written patient authorization is required to release healthcare information. The authorization may be an original, a scanned document or a photo copy.

Learn more about Winona Heath’s Privacy Policy, HIPAA Policy (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), or obtain the Medical Records Release Form (Word) or (PDF).

If you have questions regarding completion of the authorization form, the Health Information Management office can assist you. The form must be signed by the patient or a guardian before submitting. You may return the form via email (himemail@winonahealth.org) or fax to 507.457.4160. For additional questions or to submit the form, please contact the Health Information Management office (see contact information at right).
