APR Q&A: Getting to Know Joe Rothrock, APR, Senior Communications Manager, Virginia Mason

Tell us about your role and responsibilities.

My main role is overseeing internal communications at Virginia Mason, along with crisis communications when needed. We have a large health system with a hospital campus in Seattle and several medical centers throughout the region, plus the recent addition of Virginia Mason Memorial in Yakima, so there’s always more work to be done when it comes to keeping our team members informed and inspired. I have lots of daily responsibilities, from strategic planning, to providing PR counsel to executives, to tactical writing and editing, but my focus is on engaging staff to provide the best care possible for our patients.
