The Communications Department is the first point of contact for hospital media inquiries. We endeavour to facilitate your requests for interviews and identify the most appropriate spokesperson on any issue, be it the Board of Directors, Senior Management, physicians, or staff. We attempt to do so in an efficient and timely manner. Our aim is to offer support in your search for news about the hospital, to deliver information in an honest and transparent manner, and to be a resource in guiding you to the proper agencies in the event we cannot offer you the help you need.
The media is asked to contact the department in order to facilitate the following:
- Patient condition updates
- Interviews with patients, physicians and staff
- Hospital access
