Media Relations

At Memorial Hospital of South Bend we require that all media inquiries come through the Beacon Corporate Communications Department. All requests for information, including: interviews, photographs, live shots, b-roll, statements, etc., about Memorial Hospital and all affiliated practices, must be cleared first through Corporate Communications. Please understand that all Memorial departments have been trained to refer media calls to our department.

We would prefer that you call us before coming to any Beacon or Memorial facility to shoot footage, regardless of whether you plan to interview anyone. Patient privacy is of top concern to us, and therefore we require media to be escorted while on site.

Our office is open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If there is an emergency situation after hours, please call the hospital switchboard at 574-647-1000, who will page the Nursing Supervisor on call.
