Show, Don't Tell Patient Experience



Jacksonville Medical Center is ranked in the 99th percentile for patient satisfaction, but drawing patient volume from larger hospitals remains a challenge, leaders say. The marketing solution: Showing instead of telling the community why JMC has top patient experience scores.

The "patient experience" for most hospitals begins with patients visiting one of their employed or non-employed physicians. People visit their primary care physicians 10 times as often as they visit a hospital ER or Inpatient unit. So what kind of "experience" are patients having in your primary care physicians' offices?

Thanks for including Jacksonville Medical Center in your column, Anna! The staff there does an outstanding job. While their initial marketing campaign efforts didn't immediately impact the community, it did have an immediate impact on both employee satisfaction and physician and staff recruitment. And as the hospital highlights patients' experiences in the second phase of their campaign, the communication will be even more effective. As you know, it takes a significant investment of time, energy and resources to change community perception.
