About the Newsroom

The UW Medicine Newsroom is an award-winning source of news and information from UW Medicine, a Seattle-based health system affiliated with the University of Washington. UW Medicine includes three hospitals — Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center and Valley Medical Center — as well as the UW School of Medicine, Airlift Northwest, the UW Physicians practice group, and the UW Neighborhood Clinics.

The Newsroom exists to make journalists aware of news developments and story ideas about advances in research, clinical care, and education.  We publish original content in news releases, blog items and original, broadcast-quality video segments and soundbites. Our homepage also reflects our Twitter feed and links to prominent external media coverage. Read about our team and beats.

Ragan Communications' 2020 Video, Visual & Virtual Awards honored UW Medicine's media relations team for crisis communications and for video coverage of COVID-19's emergence.  

The Newsroom website is managed at 850 Republican Street, Seattle, Washington 98109.
