Welcome to the Rochester Regional Health newsroom. The newsroom is designed to provide you with useful information about how to contact appropriate public relations representatives, access press releases and facts and other helpful information.

All media requests for interviews, filming or photographs of staff, patients or patient families must be approved by a member of the Rochester Regional Health Media/Public Relations staff. Media representatives visiting our locations must be escorted by a media/pr staff person.

Release of Patient Information

Patients' and families' confidentiality and privacy are of the utmost importance to us. Information about the condition of a patient will be released only if the inquiry specifically contains the patient's name and the patient or a legal guardian has authorized the release. Rochester Regional Health will not release a patient’s name to the media but we can confirm a patient’s name, age, sex, and condition, as recommended by the American Hospital Association.

To book an interview, contact Rochester Regional's Media Relations Department.
