Media Policies

  • Certain situations may occur when Marshall Medical Center is by policy not able to provide information to the media. Marshall cannot acknowledge a patient who is a crime victim, has an assailant still at-large, is a patient identified as a victim of child abuse or sexual assault, or a prisoner of any law enforcement authority.

  • The response of the hospital will be, “I have no information about that patient.” This is not meant to avoid providing information to media; it is to protect the patient. The information is not available to the marketing/communications staff member, nor is it available for the media. Please contact law enforcement for information.

  • Celebrities, public figures and public officials are not subject to different standards than other patients when it comes to hospital policies for releasing information to the media. The hospital must seek the consent of this person, immediate family member, physician or agent, before an interview or photograph may be permitted.
