NASHVILLE, Tenn.--()--Available for purchase now, lauded marketer Chris Bevolo’s “Joe Public III: The End of Hospital Marketing” is simultaneously a celebration of hospital and health system marketers’ progress in creating innovative marketing and branding strategies that help propel organizational success, and a rallying cry imploring recognition that great hospital marketing should simply be called great marketing.

Referencing the first two books in the trilogy – “Joe Public Doesn’t Care about Your Hospital (2011) and “Joe Public II: Embracing the New Paradigm” (2014) – as mile markers for advancements in the industry, Bevolo addresses how fundamental changes in healthcare, including business models and competition, have re-shaped how hospital marketers achieve success. While the book is candid in addressing the chaotic state of healthcare and the challenges recent upheavals create, uncertainty is framed as a time of excitement and “nearly infinite opportunities” to use fresh thinking and new marketing approaches.

“We’ve seen remarkable advancements in our field over the past several years, which are reflected by the New Imperatives outlined in the book,” said Bevolo, author of the book and executive vice president at ReviveHealth. “Hospital marketing professionals have closed a significant gap – and in some ways, have surpassed – other industries in employing smart and effective strategies that build better brands, connect with consumers, and move the needle toward achieving overarching business goals. This book serves as a road map for individuals eager to emulate early successes of their peers.”

“The End of Hospital Marketing” features:

  • Six proven New Imperatives for ensuring strategic leadership and achieving hospital marketing success that reestablish best practices for the new era
  • Insight into what the most successful marketing leaders are doing, where they’re going next, and what they have in common
  • In-depth interviews with more than a dozen top marketers in the field, including a chapter offering first-person advice for readers

“The best practices detailed in this book, which we call the New Imperatives, are the product of years of experience working with health systems across the country, and conversations with industry change agents – many of whom are also our clients,” added Brandon Edwards, chief executive officer of ReviveHealth. “Our firm’s approach to hospital marketing is rooted in these New Imperatives, and as healthcare continues to evolve, we’ll continue to provide our clients with resources such as this one that help them grow and succeed.”
