Media Guidelines

News media wishing to conduct interviews or obtain information about Cookeville Regional Medical Center should contact the CRMC Marketing and Public Relations Department.  We are available to assist all news media with questions about our services, patients, providing expertise on health topics or more information about an event or news release.

We ask for advance notice for on-site interviews so that we can adequately arrange interviews with the appropriate individuals and to obtain patient consent.  To help ensure compliance with federal patient privacy standards, a member of the Marketing and Public Relations Department must accompany all reporters and photographers while on hospital property.

During normal office hours please contact our department at 931-783-5654. You may also send an email to Melahn Finley, Director of CRMC Marketing and Public Relations, at mfinley@crmchealth.org.  After hours and on weekends, you may contact the hospital operator at 931-528-2541 and ask that we be paged.  To be added to our media distribution list, please email mfinley@crmchealth.org.
