Posted: Nov. 11 at 2:00pm: Due to extremely high call volumes, we ask that anyone who does not have an urgent MyChart activation issue to call back later today. We apologize for this inconvenience and we thank you for your patience.
Porter Medical Center’s Patient Portals are online tools that help you to manage your healthcare easily and securely, allowing you to view your personal health record whenever and where ever you have access to the intranet.
Porter has two separate patient portals that you can access, depending on the service you are using:
You must sign up for each portal separately in order to use both. For more information, view our Portal FAQs.
An Important Note About Billing:
MyChart allows you to view and pay Porter Physician bills (but not Hospital bills) dated on or after November 9, 2019.
If you have:
- A Porter Physician bill dated on or after November 9, 2019, you are able to pay for it in MyChart.
- A Porter Physician bill dated on or before November 8, 2019 or a Hospital bill with any date, you can pay it online: https://PatientPortal.PorterMedical.org
You will be able to pay Hospital bills in MyChart in October 2020.

Can my family access my Portal?
Yes, you can give family members, such as parents or healthcare proxies/agents, access to your Portal. This needs to be done within your healthcare facility and requires consent from you and your family member(s).
