Our Practice is Brand Communications—and Our Specialty is Hospitals

Our practice is brand communications and our specialty is hospitals. As a full-service advertising and brand marketing agency, we have developed expertise over our 20+ years as a company in all the media channels that our clients need including print, direct marketing, TV, DRTV, radio, outdoor, web development, internet marketing, digital marketing, collateral, in-store marketing, and more. We are also pleased to be a full-service health care magazine publishing company offering fully developed consumer health magazines for hospitals across America under the title My Hometown Health.

We also believe our clients need to know how well their marketing campaigns are working, so we offer complete data analytics, tracking and measurement tools all the way through revenue reconciliation, including our own program called GRAVITY for hospitals. So, when the CFO asks, “How did it work” and “Did we spend our money well,” our clients can answer with confidence!

Building great brands requires a foundation of knowledge about your clients and your competition which we provide through multiple research methods…consumer, business to business, and through a proprietary system called Market Audits. Our company is just as familiar with the new internet research methods as it is with traditional survey methods.

Market Research and Brand Audits

Market Audits are the first step in fighting outmigration by using a proprietary, qualitative approach to determining the perception of your hospital in the four key brand equity components of (1) awareness, (2) quality, (3) associations and (4) brand loyalty. They form the foundation for a Strategic Marketing Communications Plan which is the deliverable of this process.

Consumer Research quantifies how your hospital is doing versus your competitors in important areas such as community perception of quality, ER, surgical services, women’s services, outpatient services, ad awareness, and other preferences. These custom projects are based on years of experience and expertise in multiple methodologies.
