HPHA's Twitter Protocol

HPHA uses Twitter, a free micro-blogging platform, as one tool in our efforts to communicate clearly, quickly and in an interesting manner to our internal and external audiences.

HPHA currently holds two Twitter accounts:



New accounts may be created for different needs within the organization and will be listed from this page when made available.

Content of Tweets

If you follow HPHA on Twitter, you can expect regular tweets covering some or all or the following:

  • News Stories
  • Media releases
  • Events
  • Job / Volunteer / Physician postings

We may also retweet (RT) content from other users we think may be of interest to our followers. This content may be from our Foundations, other hospitals, community partners, government and other stakeholders.

Frequency of Tweets

Followers can expect up to 5 tweets per day. Be advised there may be some periods where we have fewer postings than others (for example holidays and weekends) or no postings at all.

Following & Followers

HPHA's decision to follow a particular Twitter account does not imply endorsement, and similarly the appearance of a Twitter user as a follower of HPHA does not imply endorsement.


HPHA's Twitter account will not be monitored 24/7. We aim to update and maintain our Twitter account during regular office hours between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

Other HPHA Staff Tweeting

Some HPHA staff tweet under their own names or pseudonyms. Despite their professional affiliation with HPHA, their tweets do not represent the official positon of the organization, and should be considered the product of each individual as a private citizen.
