Media Relations Contacts

Spectrum Health welcomes the media to cover stories about our patients, experts, activities and accomplishments. However, news media interviews, inquiries, photography and video must be arranged, approved and escorted by a Spectrum Health Media Relations professional. This protects the privacy of our patients and visitors and helps ensure accurate dissemination of information through connection with the appropriate spokesperson(s). Unauthorized photography and/or video is not allowed on Spectrum Health properties. For after hours media requests, please call 616.391.1774 and ask for the PR person on call. If you have additional questions, please contact a member of the media relations team.
