For journalists

Whether you are looking to highlight a patient's journey, talk to an expert or share news of pediatric health care in some other way, the public relations office is the first point of contact for local, regional and national news media. 

All media requests for stories, photographs, patient information, interviews, statements, filming or videotaping must be approved in advance of the scheduled visit. A representative from our public relations office or VCU University Public Affairs must escort media while on hospital grounds. We're here to ensure patient/family confidentiality, secure approvals, help with wayfinding and keep the process running smoothly.

For all media inquiries, please contact one of the following team members:
