For the Media
The Media Relations Department at Kaweah Delta Medical Center is happy
to assist members of the media in getting timely and accurate information
for news stories. We are here to help coordinate interviews with staff,
patients and their families. We are available to handle interview, information,
and patient condition requests.

Visiting Kaweah Delta
We're happy to accommodate media visits on Kaweah Delta campuses, as
long as a member of the Marketing & Public Relations Department is
notified prior to the reporter arriving at our facility. We also ask that
media members become familiar with
HIPAA regulations prior to entering our facilities.
Even if contacted first by a patient family, all media visits to Kaweah
Delta must be coordinated through the Marketing & Public Relations
Federal law and Kaweah Delta policy require that a signed "Consent
to Photograph" form be completed by a patient prior to any photographs
being taken. There are areas of our hospital where photography is not
allowed. Please confer with a member of our Marketing & Public Relations
Department for further explanation of these areas.
Media members must be accompanied by a Kaweah Delta staff member at all
times while on the hospital campus.
Please be advised that while every effort will be made to secure patients
for interviews, often times this is not possible due to privacy and/or
health issues. We will do our best to accommodate your request.
These regulations include all Kaweah Delta-owned and operated facilities.
