IFMC - Iowa Institute for Feeble Minded Children, currently known as Glenwood Resource Center.

Over the past few years I have seen many queries, about patients, that at one time were admitted to the IFMC facility. I just spoke to their medical records department, and received the information below. I hope this might be helpful to those looking for patient information from the facility.

1. Before the 1960's medical records were normally destroyed after 5 years. However, they have kept demographic information for patients that were at one time admitted.

2. Current HIPAA laws, do not allow medical information to be given out, unless you are, a guardian for the patient.

3. If you are a family member, of the patient, you can contact the facility to obtain some non-medical information. For this, you will need to fill out a "release of information form".

The number to call for the Glenwood Resource Center is (712) 527-4811, hours 8-4:30 central time, ask for Medical Records. I hope that this will be helpful to those searching for family member's information.
