No matter the size of your health care organization or the services you offer, strategic and consistent marketing is essential for building market share and keeping your constituents informed.
Ongoing communication is one of the pillars necessary for success in today's marketplace. Within the health care marketing practice area, we provide a range of essential communication services to health care clients, doctor groups, home health providers, hospitals and clinics.
Just as a health care entity’s financial health is vital for success, it is also critical that the organization communicates clearly and consistently to patients, staff, constituents and other audiences. Our mission is to support health care organizations in this outreach.
At Wipfli/HFS, we advocate integrated marketing programs whenever feasible. With this approach, an organization’s key messages are communicated through multiple marketing channels at the same time, resulting in more impact and recall. We work with our clients to carefully select the right channels to reach the target audience. For example, it could be a combination of web, advertising, email and personal contact. Every situation is unique and is approached accordingly.
We believe that utilizing the right mix of skills and market knowledge is essential. With the Placemaking Group, you’ll work with creative brand consultants who understand technology. Marketing strategists who recognize the value of outstanding creativity.
