Support and assistance to members of the News Media and community organizations:

  • Responding to media queries
  • Providing subject matter experts
  • Scheduling and coordinating interviews
  • Fact sheets and statistical information
  • Images of our facilities and official logos
  • Information about VA-related outreach and events

Note: Communicating with the public and other stakeholders about how we provide exceptional health care to Veterans is vital to the work we do. We make every attempt to assist News Media in their newsgathering, to provide access to our facilities and to make expert resources available. Our top priority, however, is protecting the privacy and security of the patients we serve.

Setting Up Media Interviews

Please contact the hospital Public Affairs Officer if you are interested in locating a VA official or subject matter expert for a story. Patients, in particular, must agree to be interviewed and photographed and must sign a consent form.

Visiting Our Facilities

We strictly adhere to federal guidelines regarding patient privacy as outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.To protect our patients' privacy, we require all reporters and photographers visiting our facilities to be escorted by a public affairs staff member. Media access may be limited or denied to any area of a facility at the discretion of the medical center director, the patients' health care team or individual physicians.
