Those records may not be available if you do find them. I ran into this problem with the San Francisco General Hospital:

"Due to recent Federal privacy regulations brought on by HIPAA, we are not able to provide access to patient information at this time, so the records are not currently available for public use..."

The HIPAA is the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. For further information, take a look at
http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/hipaa/

I don't know if older records are exempt from this.
