Our public relations coordinator is available to assist news media with questions about Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, to locate a pediatric expert, or to provide additional details about a recent or upcoming event. Media must arrange interviews and photo shoots with VCU faculty, staff or patients in advance through the public relations office.
To ensure confidentiality, privacy, and appropriate sensitivity to patients and families, reporters, video crews, and photographers should be accompanied by a communications and public relations staff person while on the VCU campuses. Hospital security will remove unauthorized media from the VCU Medical Center as necessary.
For media inquiries outside of normal business hours, please page the public relations staff member on call at (804) 759-7675. Please be aware that off-hour, on-call assistance is limited to true news emergencies, not enterprise reporting.
