At Carle, we’re proud to help educate the community about healthcare. We’re well suited to help share healthcare stories with high standards for patient care and our commitment to always strive to be even better. That’s how Carle became one of America’s Top 50 Hospitals. We understand the nation’s health system can feel tough to navigate, and as the industry continues to evolve, we must up our efforts.

So, we’re refreshing Carle’s online newsroom. Journalists will find system statistics, leader bios and head shots, an archive of news releases and most importantly, story ideas. It’s all searchable to simplify your job.  You can publish these stories verbatim, and we always welcome calls to connect you with interviews and other resources on the content available or other subjects. 

As part of your toolkit, we’ll continue to send information. You may also sign up for updates on specific topics that interest you, and any time we post new details, you’ll receive a brief email.

You’ll see stories like:

  • Mothers-to-be find Zika expertise with caring Puerto Rican doctor
  • Cancer survivors support others who know what they’ve endured
  • And a toddler’s toothy grin is just what her parents always wanted

Carle’s Public Relations team is here to help you as one more way we support patients and the community. As always and per Carle policy, to connect you to information, maintain patient confidentiality and follow privacy laws, all reporters must contact us at (217) 326-8501 or at publicrelations@carle.com to arrange a Carle visit.
Let us know what you think of this renewed resource. We look forward to continuing strong partnerships with each of you.

All best,

Carle Public Relations
