New Media Centre page prioritizing YOU

We value our relationships with media representatives throughout B.C.’s Southern Interior and beyond. When building our new person-centred public website it was important to build a responsive and comprehensive media centre to allow for efficient access to information.

Contact Media Relations

We’re committed to responding to media requests in a timely manner. To ensure the confidentiality of people in our care and employees is protected, all media requests for interviews and access to our facilities are to be directed to Media Relations:

During Regular Business Hours:
1-844-469-7077 media@interiorhealth.ca
If leaving a message or sending an email, please include your name, media outlet, nature of your request and deadline
After Hours:
1-855-851-4195 media@interiorhealth.ca
After hours includes weekdays from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m., weekends and holidays. Communications staff are available for urgent requests only.
Media Policy

Our Communications team will gather information for media representatives, coordinate interviews with health-care providers, staff and patients, and facilitate access to our facilities.

Media visiting our sites will be escorted by a Communications team member (or a designate). The Communications team 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. Our first priority is delivering excellent medical care and respecting the patient's and their family's wishes with respect to privacy.
