Eden Medical Center is the Regional Trauma Center for Southern Alameda County. We will provide general patient information in accordance with California Hospital Association’s Guide to Release of Patient Information to the Media.

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.
