Our marketing audit uncovered the need to develop a brand-message hierarchy. We formulated the campaign to blend both their personal and clinical culture.

We reinforced their “compassionate care” using “real-life” relationships and moments that a community hospital can provide while delivering the message of clinical expertise. Surrounded by competition geographically with larger budgets, we needed tight media strategies that answered to our demographic and geographic targets. The broadcast cleverly bookended fifteen second spots to grab the first and last impression in commercial time slots. This provided the opportunity to expand the campaign message through rotation of key services and service lines with mass, digital and environmental media efforts.

The program concentrated on hospital services in cardio, stroke, women’s health, maternity and minimally invasive surgery. Showing that Parma stacked up nicely to the neighboring and larger hospital systems.

Campaign included mobile, tv, radio, OOH and print

The program mixed in targeted efforts to concentrate on initiatives within service lines. One example was with the American Heart Associations Heart Month “Go Red For Women” initiative, driving more community interaction with the hospital through social events, educational programs and encouraging people to share pics and stories in support.
