Lakewood’s Health Information Management (HIM) team maintains patients’ health records. They also handle vital statistics and records (such as birth certificates) and process requests for the release of health information.
Our team members in this area gather information and process your baby’s birth certificate with the State of Minnesota. We also offer to apply for your baby’s social security card, and send birth announcements to area newspapers. Vital Statistics also works with physicians to process death certificates and cremation approvals for your loved ones.
