Calling After Hours

Reporters calling before or after regular business hours should call (859) 301-2000 and ask the operator to page the media relations representative on-call.

Patient Interviews or Photos

When the media wants to interview or photograph a patient, our media relations representative coordinates with the appropriate hospital staff to ensure the patient is physically and emotionally capable.

The media relations representative must obtain the patient’s permission in advance. If the patient is a minor, permission must be obtained from the parent or legal guardian. Media representatives will be accompanied by a St. Elizabeth Healthcare media relations professional at all times while in the hospital.
