Requests for interviews, photographs or video

Media interested in conducting interviews or taking photographs or video of staff, patients, and patients’ families must request permission through our public relations staff. This includes:

  • Visits to any patients or family members in our facilities.
  • Visits to our facilities to interview staff.
  • Other external shots on the campus.


Release of patient information

When processing media requests for patient updates, we do so with regard for a patient’s right to confidentiality as guaranteed by federal HIPAA law. Our public information team will release patient information to the extent that federal and state laws permit.

We will only release information about a patient’s condition if your inquiry request specifically contains the patient’s name.

A patient or Valleywise employee’s willingness to participate in media coverage is the deciding factor in this policy. A patient, employee or the person authorized to give consent can opt out of providing any information.
