The Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare Public Relations Department is dedicated to providing timely responses to inquiries from members of the media and supplying information on news being made throughout the health system.
While we welcome the opportunity to work with members of the media, we have a responsibility to protect our patients' right to privacy. We are committed to upholding patient confidentiality and ensuring that our staff members are able to provide uninterrupted care to patients.
All contact with the media is directly channeled through the Public Relations Department. No other Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare staff members are authorized to release information or approve interviews or photography/video requests.
Members of the media may call the Public Relations Department for assistance in arranging interviews with medical experts, health system leadership or patients. We can also assist with requests to videotape or take still photography at one of our facilities, offer additional information about a news release or event, and provide patient condition reports. We will escort you during your visit to one of our facilities.
The Public Relations Department can be reached at (630) 993-5600 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. After hours, please call (331) 221-1000 and ask the operator to have the on-call Public Relations Department representative paged.
