COVID-19 Updates

Communication Hub

Health systems have responded heroically to the COVID-19 pandemic. Amid a complete upending of their operations and revenue models, they have continued to serve their communities. Yet, in order to save the very institutions that are saving people's lives, health system marketers are now approaching a new challenge: to delicately (but quickly) transition from leading crisis response to driving rapid recovery and, ultimately, growth. With this, we've summarized the health systems' marketing and communication response to COVID-19 into three main phases: Crisis Response, Rapid Recovery, and Return to Growth. You can filter content below by phase.
