For the Media

News media wishing to speak with experts at Children's Hospital, or with patient families, should contact the News and Communications Office to arrange interviews. 

To reach the staff after business hours, dial our regular office number (615) 322-4747 and ask the operator to page the on-call person.

To protect the privacy and confidentiality of all Children's Hospital patients and families, medical center policy requires a staff member from News and Communications to accompany all reporters, video crews and photographers visiting the hospital.
