Strategies That Cut Thru the Clutter for Effective Sole Community Hospital Marketing: A Compare and Contrast Discussion

About the Program

Hospital marketing and communication strategy must align with the communities in which they are anchored.  Join us as we hear from two marketing leaders on how they manage internal and external expectations from different communities’ settings. One stands strong in a competitive, metro community and the other, with deep roots as the sole pillar in the community.  What makes them similar and how are they unique?

Come and join us as we hear from two marketing leaders, Mindy Lukens Warner from Liberty Hospital and Amy Northrop from LMH Health on how they manage internal and external expectations from different communities’ settings.  All healthcare marketers and planners from physician groups, hospitals, payers, and pharmaceuticals are invited.   For more information, please contact AMAKC Healthcare SIG Chair Vince Vandehaar (Avila University / VVV Consultants LLC) at (913) 302-7264.

As we navigate this uncertain landscape, it’s our honor and privilege to continue in-person programming. During this community and worldwide pandemic, we will continue to monitor information and follow guidance from state and local government officials.
