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.
