Media Room

Welcome to the Washington Regional Media Room.  We appreciate your interest in our organization and we hope that this web site feature is a valuable tool as you learn more about our Medical system, our physicians, our mission and our commitment to quality and compassionate care.

Media Relations

The Marketing/Public Relations Department is open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, to schedule interviews, provide condition reports and arrange media visits to the hospital.  Call 479-463-3125 or 479-463-1290 for assistance during these hours.  For condition reports after hours and on weekends, please call the main hospital number, 479-463-1000, and ask for the house supervisor.

Media Request

Washington Regional has established the following media guidelines:

  • Contact the Marketing/Public Relations Department to schedule any interviews with WRMC patients, staff or physicians.  Advance notification is required to arrange consents and to schedule time and location of interviews.
  • To protect the privacy of all WRMC patients, a Marketing/Public Relations staff member must accompany all reporters, film crews and photographers while at any Washington Regional facility unless previous arrangements have been made by the director of the facility or department.

Release of Information

Condition reports for specific patients are available by calling the Marketing/PR Department during regular business hours or by calling the hospital's main number and asking for the house supervisor after hours and on weekends.

Please note that WRMC personnel cannot release any information without the first and last name of the patient, nor without the permission of the patient.

If the patient is listed in the WRMC directory, Marketing/PR or house supervisor may release a one-word description of the patient's condition as described below.

The one-word descriptions are:

Undetermined - The patient is awaiting the physician and/or assessment.
