Media Information

News media inquiries during regular business hours should be directed to:

Carolyn Kemp
Regional Manager of Public Relations
Phone: 510-869-8220
E-mail: KempC2@sutterhealth.org

Outside of regular business hours, call 510-655-4000. We strive to respond quickly to all media inquires.

A public relations staff member must accompany members of the news media during all on-site visits and interviews to maintain patient confidentiality. We will connect members of the media with the appropriate sources for comment. Please make arrangements with public relations prior to arrival.

Members of the media should expect to present proper identification. We ask reporters to identify the medical center by its full name and to use the full name and title of staff members.

We also invite inquiries about medical topics and will work to put you in touch with an expert who can address the subject. For urgent media attention at any time, please call the medical center operator at 510-655-4000 and ask them to page the on-call media relations representative.
