Covenant HealthCare welcomes media professionals to our campuses. However, we appreciate advanced notice in order to help us comply with patient privacy laws. Please contact the Public Relations Specialist to arrange patient interviews, obtain background information and/or interview our professionals prior to visiting our campus.
The following are guidelines for contacting Covenant HealthCare to arrange interviews, photo opportunities or videotape sessions;
- All interview requests with any member of Covenant HealthCare staff or patients must come through the Planning and Business Development Department. The Public Relations Specialist will respond to your request in a timely manner and help arrange any interviews and provide additional resources for your story.
