Accessing Medical Records

Under federal and New York State law, patients have a right to access their medical records.

The Hospital will generally honor a patient’s request to furnish information to another party which may include but not be limited to another physician, hospital, or medical facility; to an attorney; to court to an insurance company; and to the patient.

The patient also has a right to receive a copy of their medical record in an electronic form and may also direct the Hospital to provide such copy directly to their personal representative/designee.

Hospital Records

Patients can access their medical records using myNYP.org. Alternatively, patients can complete the authorization form (below) in full and send to the appropriate address provided on the form.
