The California State retention regulations require that the original medical records accumulated during the Hospital’s operation are maintained. Records will be maintained until November, 2021.

Temple Community Hospital has entered into a legal arrangement whereby Iron Mountain will not only store the medical records, but will also provide release of information services.

Many former patients will need to obtain copies of their records, and Iron Mountain has established a procedure to comply with these requests.

The medical records have been moved to an Iron Mountain facility. In order for Iron Mountain to provide copies of medical records to patients, or a recipient designated by them, Iron Mountain requires an authorization signed by the patient or their legal representative.

A copy of the authorization form can be obtained by:
