Pocket Health
Online access to imaging records through PocketHealth.

For personal access to your imaging records, please enroll online at www.pocket.health/STEGH. Once enrolled for access, you can view your entire available medical imaging history from St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital, share imaging instantly with any physician or even burn your own CD/USB from home.

There is a $5.00 fee at the time of enrolment which includes permanent access to all previous imaging as well as any new exams you undergo over the following two weeks. You can update your accounts with new imaging records anytime for additional $5.00 fees.

*As of December 31, 2021, STEGH will no longer be burning images onto CDs for patients. Patients must enroll with PocketHealth online to access their medical images.
