When promoting service lines, marketing leaders must first understand what differentiates them from other hospitals; then, there is the challenge of collaborating with stakeholders to craft a message that resonates with perspective patients while aligning with the brand as a whole.

Located in a rural area of eastern New York, Columbia Memorial Health has a particularly diverse target audience and high competition. By identifying the key values of their population through perception studies and other community initiatives, they were able to develop a data-centric, holistic rebranding campaign that set them apart in the market.

Join the system’s VP of Marketing and External Affairs William Van Slyke as he outlines his strategy for promoting the organization and its subspecialties, reveals how to secure physician buy-in, and questions the conventional “consensus approach” to healthcare marketing.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will:

  • Understand why brand is the tide in healthcare marketing and the importance of addressing big-picture perceptions before targeting subspecialties
  • Learn how to carve out a balanced role in marketing for clinicians, and the most effective strategies for securing their understanding in marketing initiatives
