The following are guidelines for contacting Covenant HealthCare to arrange interviews, photo opportunities or videotape sessions;

Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Public Relations Specialist can only provide reporters with a one-word condition update: good, fair, serious or critical. In order to protect our patients and staff, patient conditions on victims of crime will not be released.

Patients cannot be interviewed or photographed prior to signing a HIPAA consent form.
