How we help you track down information, coordinate interviews, and navigate our facilities

Interior Health is committed to responding to media requests in a timely manner. Our Communications staff will gather information for media representatives, coordinate interviews with physicians, staff and patients, and facilitate access to our facilities.

To ensure the confidentiality of our patients, residents, and employees is protected, all media requests for interviews and access to our facilities are to be directed to Media Relations.

Media visiting Interior Health sites will be escorted by Communications staff (or a designate).

Communications staff are required to secure written consent from patients prior to media interviews occurring.

Updates on patient conditions may sometimes be provided to media if the patient or their designated representative has given authorization through a signed consent form. Interior Health’s first priority is delivering excellent medical care and respecting the patient's and their family's wishes with respect to privacy.
