PHC and the Media

There are countless stories at Providence Health Care, and Communications & Public Affairs is here to tell them. We are the ones who translate the latest Providence Health Care research findings into plain English for the everyday person to understand, and for the news media to cover.

We are the source for stories about unique individuals and teams across PHC who are making a difference — and whose achievements can help inspire others. Have a story you’d like to tell? See our section below on getting a story in the news.

We are the ones who help get the word out about important issues and events, both to our own organization and to the public. For more information, see our section below on promoting your event through the media.

We are the connection between the news media and the entire organization, helping reporters find the right experts among our staff, physicians and researchers; helping those individuals prepare for their encounters with the press; helping patients tell their stories through the media and keeping a close eye on where PHC people and programs are being mentioned in the news. For more information, see our sections below on PHC experts, media training and tips when navigating a media interview.

We are always looking for new ways to tell these stories to more people, whether it’s through videos that we post on our YouTube channel, items we post on Twitter or Facebook or podcasts we make available online. For more information, see our Toolkit section on social media.

We are here to help make sure that in a crisis or urgent situation, important information gets out in a timely way to audiences within and beyond our organization. For more information, see our section below on issues management.

In short, we’re here to share some of the millions of stories that make Providence Health Care such an amazing place.
