Office of Communications & Media Relations

The Office of Communications and Media Relations (OCMR) shares timely, accurate and important information about the Clinical Center's scientific advances, patient experiences and services, educational and collaborative opportunities and clinical research initiatives which improve patient care and benefit human health.

Patients have called the Clinical Center the "House of Hope." We'll help you understand why.

Examples of OCMR activities include:

  • Serving as the "go-to" office for all reporter inquiries, photography and filming requests related to the Clinical Center.

  • Producing a variety of quality, informative publications ranging from the hospital's newsletter to its annual report.

  • Supporting development of materials that are key to our patients' experience and safety, such as nutritional information, patient handbooks and educational materials for patients about their care and condition.

  • Creating innovative digital content and engaging with patients and their caregivers, the NIH community, outside researchers and other stakeholders through social media and the website.

  • Promoting stimulating lectures on cutting edge science, including Clinical Center Grand Rounds and the NIH Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series, as well as special events such as National Symphony Orchestra concerts in the Clinical Center's grand atrium, which contribute to the hospital's unique environment of care.
