Steve Jolly Speaks on Rural Healthcare Marketing at Annual Conference
Steven R. Jolly, principal of Dallas-based SRJ Marketing Communications, spoke to an audience of more than 300 board members representing hospitals of all sizes throughout Texas on July 25 at the Texas Healthcare Trustees 2008 Annual Conference on in San Antonio, Texas.
In his presentation titled “Building Community Confidence”, Jolly leveraged his expertise in healthcare marketing and public relations to emphasize the need for hospitals to build stronger relationships with their community.”
“Many small community hospitals continue to experience out-migration because their communities are simply not aware of the full capabilities of their local hospital,” Jolly explained. “My presentation was about reaching out and establishing critical relationships with the community.”
Topics of his presentation also included: the importance of marketing, internal and external communication, typical community perceptions, opportunities for improving awareness, and affordable ideas to promote hospital services.
“For more than 18 years, SRJ Marketing Communications has excelled at providing healthcare providers with effective solutions to that meet their business objectives,” Jolly says. “Providing the audience the information they needed to walk away with a clearer picture on the importance of building community confidence was the goal of my presentation and based on feedback, I achieved just that.”
