Medical Records and Birth Certificates

To request medical records

Connecticut state law requires hospitals to retain medical records for 10 years. Records older than 10 years may no longer be available at the hospital.

Here is how to obtain medical records:

Call 203-688-2231 to request an authorization form so we know exactly what information to release and to whom we can release it. 

Once completed, you may mail, fax or hand-deliver the authorization form:

YNHHS Medical Information Unit
PO Box 9565
New Haven, CT 06535



You may deliver the authorization form in person to the Medical Records office during business hours, Monday - Friday, 8 am - 4:3 0pm. We are located on the hospital's main campus, on the ground floor of the Watson Pavilion, 5 Perryridge Road, Greenwich.

To request copies of X-rays or other radiological images

Please call 203-863-3037.

How long does it take to receive medical records?

Depending on the complexity and size of your request, it may take up to 30 days; however, most records requests are fulfilled within 10 days of receipt of your completed authorization form. Records will be mailed to the address you provide. Please bring a photo ID if you choose to pick-up copies of your records at Greenwich Hospital.
