For the Media
The staff and physicians throughout the Bassett Healthcare Network are committed to sharing information and working with the media to educate the public on topics related to health and health care. The Public Relations Department welcomes the opportunity to serve as a media resource with the assistance from Bassett's knowledgeable medical and scientific staff, to provide background information, expert interviews and commentary on health care issues. All media calls should be channeled through Public Relations.
To protect the privacy of our patients and their families, Bassett policy requires a staff member from Corporate Communications to accompany all reporters, video crews and photographers visiting the facility for business purposes.
If you have questions regarding a news release or to arrange an interview with a provider during business hours, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. contact us by phone at 607-547-3914 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
After office hours, please call the hospital's main number, 1 (800) BASSETT (1-800-227-7388) and ask to speak to the media representative on call.
