I was admitted to a Penn Hospital. How do I get my medical records?

Answer

The University Archives does not hold patient records for any hospital. If you are seeking patient records from: The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Presbyterian Hospital, or Pennsylvania Hospital you need to contact the individual hospital’s records department. Please note that by Pennsylvania state law hospitals are only required to retain medical records for a minimum of 7 years (18 years for minors).
