Sharing with Our Team

Having a dialog with our community and patients is important to Premier Health. We look forward to your comments and suggestions and hope we can bring greater understanding and commitment to health care in Dayton.

Our goal is to be courteous and professional in our postings and ask that you do the same. Though Premier Health maintains specific positions on health matters, it will not remove comments shared by those who have different viewpoints if they are presented in a civilized manner. We would rather you post about it and engage us in a discussion.

Comments posted on on the Premier Health website, blog, and social media platforms are subject to our Consumer Code of Ethics.

All comments made on the Premier Health website, blog, and social media platforms are the responsibility of the commenter, not the website/blog owner (Premier Health), administrator, contributor, editor, or author.

Premier Health will not respond to or comment about a patient medical case on the website, blog, or social media platforms.

Consumer Code of Ethics

Premier Health expects those who initiate or carry on a blog or social media discussion to:

  • Take responsibility for their own words and for the comments Premier Health allows on its digital platforms.
  • Stay away from content that Premier Health defines as “unacceptable,” including that which:
    • Is abusive, harassing, stalking, or threatening others
    • Is libelous, knowingly false, ad-hominem, or misrepresents another person
    • Infringes upon a copyright or trademark
    • Violates an obligation of confidentiality
    • Violates the privacy of others
  • Unacceptable content is defined and determined on a case-by-case basis, and the definition is not limited to this list. If Premier Health content owners delete a comment or link, the content owner will say so in a private email to the commentor, if that information is made available by the commentor, and explain why. We reserve the right to change these standards at any time with no notice.
  • Refrain from saying anything online that you would not say in person. Premier Health will connect privately before responding publicly.

Premier Health will respond to negative comments about its hospitals on our digital platforms where possible, provided they don’t veer into abuse or libel.

If a private conversation is needed, please connect through the Contact Us form.

  • Be fair in commenting on another person. Premier Health will not publish content that, in its opinion, unfairly attacks another party. 
  • Not post anonymous comments. You will need to provide your name and valid email address where you may be reached.
