SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
Mortar has launched “Be well,” a new marketing campaign for Carondelet Health Network in Southern Arizona. “Be well” emphasizes Carondelet’s commitment to personalized, highly compassionate care, and it celebrates the work of the Network’s nearly 5,000 associates and 1,200 physician partners.
Messages encouraging Southern Arizona to “Be well” are appearing at a wide range of surprising locations like grocery stores, gas pumps, on the outside of the Network’s hospitals, and in the local shopping malls--as well as more traditional channels like TV and Outdoor. And the messages are unique, too: Carondelet suggests that the community to “Make random acts of kindness less random,” “Don’t listen to anyone who tells you to act your age,” and “Whatever you’re politics, be liberal with the sunscreen,” among other healthy lifestyle reminders.
Jim Beckmann, Carondelet’s President and CEO comments: “Carondelet has been serving the healthcare needs of this community for more than 132 years. Our devotion to our patients and their families transcends the care we provide in our hospitals and medical offices. ‘Be well’ is about stepping beyond any traditional role we play as a healthcare provider and inspiring people to make Southern Arizona a healthy and vibrant place to live.”
“Healthcare can feel so fragmented and impersonal. It’s important to remind people that there’s still a place that values the whole person—in mind, body, and spirit,” said Katie Wright, Director of Brand Strategy at Mortar. “Carondelet has cared for Southern Arizona for more than a century. It really is the heart of the community. So a message blending compassion and wellness makes perfect sense.”
“Be well” developed out of Mortar’s extensive “360” brand development process—which included interviews with the Carondelet community, in-depth market research and competitive analysis.
“This campaign started with understanding what patients really want from their healthcare provider,” comments Tim Spry, Mortar’s Creative Director. “This campaign is all about being good to ourselves and looking out for each other. With rising healthcare costs, falling reimbursements and more uninsured patients, mission-based, values-driven healthcare is more important than ever,” he continued.
The campaign is scheduled to run through 2013.
