At Beacon Health System we require that all media inquiries come through the Beacon Corporate Communications Department. All requests for information, including: interviews, photographs, live shots, b-roll, statements, etc., about Beacon Health System and all affiliated practices, must be cleared first through Corporate Communications. Please understand that all Beacon departments have been trained to refer media calls to our department.
We would prefer that media call us before coming to any Beacon facility or property to shoot footage, regardless of whether you plan to interview anyone. Patient privacy is of top concern to us, and therefore we require media to be escorted while on any Beacon property.
Our office is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If there is an emergency situation after hours, please call the Elkhart General Hospital switchboard at 574.294.2621 or the Memorial Hospital switchboard at 574.647.1000. The switchboard will page the Nursing Supervisor on call.
