After business hours or on weekends or holidays, members of the media may call 734-764-2220 to page a media team member for patient condition reports or highly urgent matters.

  • For news-related updates on patients in our hospitals: First, read these guidelines for release of one-word patient conditions. Any further information release to the media, or visit to a patient, requires a signed consent from the patient or his/her legal representative, and must be arranged through our team.
  • Any visit by media to our facilities requires advance approval and an escort by a member of our team. Members of the media who seek to observe, photograph or film an operation at Michigan Medicine must provide proof of vaccination during the approval process for the visit.
