Health Information Management
All of the information from your stay will become part of your medical records. This includes results from diagnostic test or exams, notes from your physician, pharmacy records as well as many other items. These records may only be released to you or your designated representative, or those specifically involved in your care (physicians) or in the payment services (insurance companies)
If you need to get a copy of your medical record for any reason, please call 803-713-6818 before coming to our office. We can explain any authorization, signatures or documentation you may need for the release of information.
Do you have questions about a birth certificate? Birth certificates are issued by DHEC Vital Records, not the hospital. You may contact DHEC at (803)898-3630 or online at www.scdhec.gov/vr/. If you need other information about a birth certificate at KershawHealth Medical Center, please call 803-713-6237.
Certificates of Death are issued by the funeral home. After 30 days, you may obtain this certificate from DHEC by calling (803)898-3630 or on line at www.scdhec.gov/vr/.
If you need to contact the Health Information Management Department, please contact Rudene Hutto at 803-713-6296 or Hutto@kershawhealth.org.
