Working with the media
Contact the Baptist Hospital Northeast Marketing & Public Relations department at (502) 897-8343 when you need a resource for a health-related story. (The Marketing & Public Relations department is shared with Baptist Hospital East in Louisville.) We will get in touch with the appropriate person or persons and arrange for an interview, photo opportunity or other request. Other Baptist Northeast staff will refer any media calls they receive to us, so calling us directly will save you time.
After 5 p.m. on weekdays, on the weekends or holidays, please call the Baptist East switchboard at (502) 897-8100. The switchboard will page the on-call PR representative to assist you. If you need to cancel or change the scheduled time for an interview, please notify the Marketing & Public Relations department as soon as possible by calling (502) 897-8343. We will then inform the appropriate people, and, if necessary, make new arrangements for your visit.
News releases about classes and events at Baptist Northeast are sent out regularly to area media outlets. Please call us at (502) 897-8343 if you, or a specific reporter, would like to receive our news releases directly. You may also request to have news releases sent to you by e-mail by contacting Bettina White, Public Relations coordinator, at email@example.com.
All media representatives must be escorted on the Baptist Northeast campus by a Marketing & Public Relations representative. This policy helps to ensure that the privacy of our staff and patients is respected. It also helps reporters and photographers get to where they are going much more quickly -- without getting lost.
If your visit is not pre-arranged, delays could be experienced. Media representatives without a Marketing & Public Relations escort will be asked to wait until a proper escort can arrive.
In most instances, media representatives will be asked to come to the lobby of the hospital's main entrance to meet a Marketing & Public Relations escort.
Media representatives may park in the spaces located in the hospital's front lot, near New Moody Lane, and enter through the main lobby.
