At Ephrata Community Hospital, we require that all media contacts come through the Community Relations Office. All media requests for information (interviews, photographs, live shots, etc.) about hospital services and the physician practices of the Northern Lancaster County Medical Group must be cleared through this office. Please understand that all of our departments have been trained to refer media calls to our department.
We would prefer that you call us before coming to any of our facilities to shoot footage, regardless of whether you plan to interview anyone here. Patient privacy is of top concern to us, and we want all media to be escorted while on site.
Our office is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. If there is an emergency situation (such as a disaster, major influx of patients, etc.) after hours, the hospital switchboard can reach a member of the staff.
