Media Contacts

How Can We Help You?

Our media relations staff is available to assist local, regional, and national news media in locating an expert spokesperson, obtaining information on a news item, or answering questions about a news release or event. Please note, in an effort to ensure the privacy and security of patients, Lakeland does not release information about patients’ conditions to the media. 

Media: For information about Spectrum Health Lakeland, our staff, or our patients, please contact our Public Relations Specialist at 269.927.5271

If you are not a member of the media and would like to speak with someone at Lakeland, please call our main phone line at 800.968.0115

In the event of an emergency, a Spectrum Health Lakeland public emergency preparedness hotline is available by calling 844.385.2191. This number will contain a scripted message with the latest situational updates as they become available. For example, during blizzard conditions, a list of facility closures may be recorded.

You can also find emergency information here on our emergency information webpage.

Media Relations

Spectrum Health Lakeland welcomes the media to cover stories about our patients, experts, activities and accomplishments. However, news media interviews, inquiries, photography and video must be arranged, approved and escorted by a Spectrum Health Media Relations professional. This protects the privacy of our patients and visitors and helps ensure accurate dissemination of information through connection with the appropriate spokesperson(s). Unauthorized photography and/or video is not allowed on Spectrum Health properties. If you have additional questions, please contact a member of the media relations team.

For print and broadcast journalists,
