A Cute Solution To A Common Health Care Marketing Challenge

August 20, 2015

Premier Health, a multi-hospital southern Ohio health care system with 1,892 licensed beds and more than 868,000 annual outpatient visits, was looking for a fresh way to to reassure future moms that its health care system offers lots of birthing options and has lots of medical expertise—whether the moms turn out to have normal deliveries or deliveries with complications.

Its very effective TV spots highlight happy babies wearing onesies or caps that bear a printed word or phrase, each one implying a story about the hospital’s skills and facilities. The voice-over copy is soft-sell, letting the images do most of the talking.

“Every baby is unique,” an announcer says, “And so is every birth. Which is why so many new moms choose Premier Health. We offer access to a larger range of birthing options. And decades of experience helping women become mothers. So we have everything you need for your unique bundle of joy. Premier Health. Leading with care.”
