To best serve our patients and to assist the media, Baptist Health adheres to the following policies:
Media wishing to interview, film or record a Baptist Health patient may only do so with written consent and with a representative from the Marketing Department present. Media may be asked to discontinue taping if the clinician or patient deems it necessary.
All media representatives must be escorted while at Baptist Health. To schedule a visit, please call 270.825.5787.
Baptist Health strictly abides by federal medical privacy laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. HIPAA is designed to protect the privacy and confidentiality of patient information.
Authorized personnel can share the following information if the patient has agreed to be listed in the hospital directory: name, condition in general terms, location in the hospital, and if the patient has been treated and released.
