Baton Rouge General Medical Center recognizes the important role the media plays in keeping the community informed. The General's Media Relations team strives to provide media professionals with accurate information and reputable sources on a wide variety of medical and health related topics while protecting the rights of our patients and their families. Baton Rouge General's primary responsibility is to protect the confidentiality, health and legal rights of each patient and we will work with the media within the guidelines of reasonable conduct and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
