New Program Helps Gulf War Veterans Find In-Patient Medical Records

This new program will facilitate the process for our 1990-1991 Gulf War veterans to obtain copies of their in-patient hospital records from hospitals established during the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War. Although these records were located in the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St. Louis, MO, they were stored only by the name of the hospital and date of treatment. Working with the Offices of the Surgeons General, the Department of Veteran Affairs, and the National Personnel Record Center, we are completing an electronic data base to cross-reference patient names and SSN with the theater hospitals and admission dates. When this data base of over 17,500 1990-1991 Gulf War inpatient records is completed, we will be able to assist veterans in requesting copies of their hospitalization records. Veterans may call 1-800-497-6261 to find out if their inpatient record has been added to the data base and to obtain the paperwork necessary to request a copy.

Medical Records Team Returns to St. Louis

This is the third search initiated to find 1990-1991 Gulf War veterans’ inpatient hospital records. Since we began this effort, we have been able to locate more than 25,000 of the approximate 27,000 records.
