Photography Policy

Our responsibility to safeguard patient confidentiality and comfort extends to our reception rooms and other public areas. For that reason, no video or photography of any kind is permitted at UHS without the express permission of the UHS Marketing & Health Communications Manager or a UHS Director. A UHS staff member must accompany anyone approved to take video or photos in a UHS patient area. Permission must also be sought from the people in the reception room or other affected patient area.

This is not just our policy; it is our responsibility under HIPAA, the law that governs health care confidentiality.

Due to staffing and privacy restrictions, the majority of videos may only be shot on weekdays between 5 and 6 p.m.
