DOE, hospital detail records agreement
A set of historic medical records stored in a Quonset hut leased by the Los Alamos Medical Center will be retrieved, decontaminated and sorted for permanent disposition under a million dollar agreement that has been signed by LAMC and the Department of Energy.
“The hospital has entered into a cooperative agreement with the DOE Office of Health, Safety and Security in conjunction with the Los Alamos Site Office of the National Nuclear Security regarding the old medical records,” said Sandra Podley, chief executive officer of the medical center.
“Right now we are working on finalizing contracts with the primary subcontractor on the project and will be working on the final project plan and scheduling for the project over the next few weeks”
“We are really looking forward to getting started with the project,” she added.
An announcement on Friday by the site office clarified and expanded on earlier reports about the agreement.
The collection is thought to include records from the beginning of the laboratory through the mid-60s. The hospital became privatized in January 1964, and DOE will take custody of the records prior to that point. LAMC will assume responsibility for preserving the post-1964 records.
