Are You on the Map when it Comes to Women’s Health?

Spirit Globe Small Are You on the Map when it Comes to Womens Health?For the past 15 years, a single, non-competing network of American hospitals has been demonstrating successful financial performance, outstanding physician engagement, and active consumer loyalty with a step-by-step program called Spirit of Women.

Recent healthcare reform measures are driving hospitals to create coordinated efforts in community engagement and population coordination. Spirit hospitals have built their success on these components for years.

“We have an active database of more than 1,000 women who are advocates for our hospital and the way we care for them and their families. For a small community like ours, this is incredible and sets us apart from our competitor,” says Fred Rankin III, President & CEO of Mary Washington Healthcare. “Spirit of Women has provided the infrastructure and the creative concepts to make this database something far more than a list of names.

The Spirit of Women Network offers geographic exclusivity to members.

The white paper, “Bridging the Gap: Expanding Cardiovascular Service Lines to Reach Women” assesses the key factors involved in gender-sensitive cardiovascular care and illustrates how the HeartCaring model can help hospitals distinguish themselves within their community, enhance physician relations and grow revenue.
