For the Media

Media Visitor Policy

Journalists are welcome to visit Sacred Heart Medical Center. Federal law requires us to maintain strict rules regarding patient confidentiality; therefore, we must accompany members of the media at all times while inside our medical facilities.

Journalists are asked to contact us at the Public Affairs office any time they plan to come to one of our campuses. A member of our staff can assist you in arranging interviews for your news story. We will then make arrangements to meet and escort you to your campus destination. 

Parking is available for journalists visiting our campuses. Please refer to our media parking guide or ask our Public Affairs staff if you have questions related to parking.

For more information about regulations related to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), please refer to the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems Code of Conduct.
