Copies of medical records can be sent by medical records directly to another healthcare provider (i.e. physician) at no cost to the patient.
Simply call H.I.S. (719.584.4480) and provide us with the physician’s name, phone and fax number, address, as well as a contact person, and we can conveniently send your protected health information immediately to them for continuity of care.
Health Information Services (Medical Records) files a Certificate of Birth with the State of Colorado. A copy of the official Birth Certificate can be obtained from the Pueblo City County Health Department, 719.583.4300, 101 W. 9th St. Pueblo, CO, 81003.
Health Information Services also files a request for a Social Security Card. We mail a Proof of Social Security to you. The proof of Social Security does not have the baby’s Social Security Number on it, but does serve as a Temporary Social Security Card until Social Security mails one to you. A Paternity Statement may need to be completed in order to include the father on the Birth Certificate. This is routinely required if you are not married or not in a common-law relationship, although there are other situations that may warrant this form’s completion. The Paternity Statement is a legal document and needs to be completely filled out in black ink, no mistakes, no cross outs, and must be witnessed. The mother of the baby and father of the baby cannot witness each other.
If you have any further questions regarding Birth Certificates, feel free to call 719.595.7125.
