Media Guidelines

A member of the Valleywise Health communications team will help you navigate the medical center and behavioral health campuses, identify contacts for your story, identify the appropriate location for your interview and coordinate photo or b-roll shoots. Valleywise Health requires that a member of our communications team escort journalists and news photographers while on Valleywise Health property. Additionally, Valleywise Health communications will:

  • Coordinate on-camera and telephone interviews with Valleywise Health experts
  • Offer b-roll and photographs to accompany stories, as available
  • Arrange on-site logistics for visiting news crews


Valleywise Health requires anyone visiting Valleywise Health facilities, including all contractors, consultants, patients and visitors, to sign a consent form before being photographed, videotaped or interviewed by the news media or by an in-house photographer if the photograph is to be shown to the general public. The communications representative will secure the signed release before any photography or videotaping begins.
