Vital Records

We understand that certain life events require the documentation and verification of vital records, and we are here to assist you every step of the way. Our goal is to provide you with a seamless and efficient experience in obtaining vital records that are essential for various purposes.

Our office has vital records, including birth, marriage, and death records beginning in 1881; 6 years before Middletown's first hospital (Middletown Hospital Association) opened its door in December of 1887. Over the next 124 years, the Middletown Hospital Association would undergo a number of name changes - Thrall Hospital (Tuesday, May 10, 1892 to March 12, 1929), Elizabeth A. Horton Memorial Hospital (March 12, 1929 to September 1, 2002) and Orange Regional Medical Center - Horton Campus (October 5, 2002 to August 5, 2011).

On August 5, 2011, Orange Regional Medical Center officially closed its doors and moved operations to a new hospital, Garnet Health Center, in the Town of Wallkill.

Our office still issues new birth certificates and death certificates for individuals who are born or pass away within the boundaries of the City of Middletown.
