John Lazarou, Media Relations Manager

Journalists should always work with the media relations manager to coordinate interviews with any member within the GBMC HealthCare system which includes:

  • The Greater Baltimore Health Alliance (GBHA)
  • Greater Baltimore Medical Associates (GBMA)
  • The Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC)
  • The Greater Baltimore Medical Center Foundation

The media relations manager is the official communications link for all GBMC entities and is available to respond to media inquiries or interview requests in a timely manner. We also issue frequent news releases and announcements to keep the communities we serve informed of the latest news and events within GBMC. In addition to providing news releases and tip sheets, we also provide:

  • Photographs and digital images
  • Interview scheduling
  • Background information on GBMC and its entities, leadership and physicians

For assistance with all press inquiries please contact the media relations office. Thank you.
