Visiting UF Health

  • The safety and privacy of our patients at UF Health is our organization’s top priority, and our policy mandates that every reporter be escorted when visiting our campus. Journalists who arrive unexpectedly will be met by security staff and asked to contact the media team to plan a future visit, so please be sure to reach out to us so we can coordinate your visit.
  • Before you come to UF Health, a staff member will instruct you where to park your vehicle. Reporters are not permitted to park their vehicles in garages or areas reserved for patients. UF Health Communications staff members are unable to validate parking for vehicles in patient parking areas or garages. Reporters will be responsible for any and all parking fees or tickets issued to their vehicles in patient parking garages.

Regarding Patients

  • In addition to an expectation of privacy by all patients and visitors at UF Health, the privacy rights of all patients is protected under federal law by HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Members of the media team must secure written permission from patients, as required, in advance of any onsite interviews with patients or their health care providers.

For more information about any of the above, please visit the UF Health Media Resources page.
