MultiCare Valley Hospital contracts with CIOX Incorporated, a professional medical record copying service, to ensure that your copies are available to you as quickly as possible. Please allow up to 15 business days for us to process your request, even though we strive to make the copies available within three business days.
Prior to copying your records, CIOX Incorporated would like you to know that there will be a reasonable fee charged for this service and pre-payment may be required.
The ability to charge for copying of medical records, to cover the costs of labor and supplies, is mandated by the Washington State Legislature as outlined in RCW 70.02.
We often recommend that you request only the pertinent parts of your medical record in order to limit the number of pages copied. This usually includes all of the medical reports documented by the physician (such as discharge summary, operative reports, consultation reports) and relevant progress notes from your visit and diagnostic tests (such as Lab, Radiology, EKGs). CIOX Incorporated will contact you with the pre-payment amount. Medical records will not be released until pre-payment is received.
If you have any questions, please contact the Valley Health Information Management Department at 509-473-5431.
