Updates for mass casualty incidents will be provided regularly to members of the media. A member of the public relations team will serve as an official hospital spokesperson, unless specific medical information is necessary, in which case, a medical spokesperson will be designated by the hospital's executive team.
Requests for information or interviews should be made to the public relations team. It is UMC policy that only members of UMC’s public relations team and hospital executives are permitted to confirm information and grant interview requests. UMC adheres to the guidelines of HIPAA in protecting all patient information.
