Departments and Services

Medical Records

Roosevelt General Hospital (RGH) opened at 42121 US Highway 70 during August 2001. The Medical Records Department holds all medical documentation that occurs at RGH and RGH Clinic. Records of admission, emergency room visits, day surgery, X-ray, lab, and more are located at medical records. Per New Mexico State Law, hospitals must retain all records that relate directly to the care and treatment of a patient for 10 years following the patient's last discharge.

Patients can obtain a copy of their current records from our facility by completing a Release of Medical Records. You must submit a copy of the completed and signed medical records release form along with a copy of your valid picture ID. You can return the form to Medical Record department or fax the documents to (575) 356-7116.

Medical Power of Attorney

Is a Medical Power of Attorney the right option for you?

A Medical Power of Attorney appoints an individual(s) to make medical decisions about your healthcare. A few reasons to have a Medical Power of Attorney are:

  • a rapid decline in health
  • unable to pick up your own records
  • religious choices
  • to give instructions about your own healthcare
