DavidHenry Marketing & Media establishes new communications platform –‘EXTRAORDINARY DOCTORS’ — for Meritus Medical Group (physician network of Meritus Health)

Meritus_mediaAcross the country, hospitals and large medical groups continue to expand their networks of fully employed and affiliated physician practices. Both general and speciality healthcare providers (independents and groups) have increasing pressures to attract and retain patients and referring parties in highly competitive service areas.  Meritus Health, located in Hagerstown, Maryland, has the benefit of a long-standing reputation in their region (western Maryland, eastern West Virginia, and southern Pennsylvania). “It’s not only important for us to tout the top doctors, impressive facilities and resources available through the network that Meritus Medical Group brings as part of Meritus Health, but also for us to present them in a way that truly connects the audience to those unique selling points over competing physician group practices in the area,” shares David Fink, President and Chief Communications Officer for DavidHenry Marketing & Media. “In this situation, we developed a message platform that could be utilized for the entire system’s communication program, and tweaked it based on the specialties being promoted. It brings the common denominator — patients’ experiences with their doctors — to the forefront. In the end, it’s these ‘Extraordinary Doctors’ who offer comfort and trust for Meritus Medical Group patients and referring parties.”  Media for the Meritus Medical Group’s ‘Extraordinary Doctors’ campaign includes outdoor, radio, print, and other regional advertising with support collateral.

DavidHenry Marketing & Media Wins Two Gold Aster Awards


Westfield, N.J. – DavidHenry Marketing and Media is pleased to announce the acceptance of two Gold Aster Awards for 2014. The Aster Awards is one of the largest national healthcare advertising and marketing competitions, and is hosted by Marketing Healthcare Today magazine and Creative Images, Inc. The awards were given for creative work for clients Aria Health and Overlook Medical Center in the Service Line – Orthopedic Services Campaign and Physician Directory categories.

The winning entry for Aria Health was the “Remember When (Orthopaedic)” service line initiative. This integrated communications campaign was for Aria Health’s 3B Orthopaedic Institute that opened in January 2013. After a successful launch effort in early 2014, the “Remember When” campaign featured middle-aged male and female orthopaedic patients remembering how good it feels to have an active lifestyle (swimming, baseball, tennis, dancing, bike riding) in print, outdoor, radio, interactive and direct mail mediums.

The winning entry for Overlook Medical Center was for “Overlook View Physician Directory 2013.” DavidHenry has been publishing “the View” for Overlook Medical Center for over seven years. “Overlook View” reaches nearly 100,000 households and is the hospital’s number one marketing vehicle. The annual directory lists all of the medical staff and is used as a reference in the community.

Aster Gold Awards are only issued to creative works that score between a 95 and a 99 (top 5% of the nation). “The creativity of this year’s healthcare marketing professionals continues to be at an all time high. The 2014 Aster Awards program contained some of the best advertising arguably in the world,” said Melinda Lucas, Aster Awards Program Coordinator.

Think advertorials, sponsored content, and other ways to feature your product in a way that consumers like to get actionable education about, and engagement with your brand. And in the end, add the human touch. Make sure that if and when the customer wants to speak to a live person who can answer questions, it supports a positive educational phase of the customer product lifecycle. Don’t underestimate your consumers’ ability and desire to understand your product – be ready!  It’s the marketers that are most ready that will move more people to action and generate more demand for brands.  If all you do is hard sell and don’t educate and bring value to those listening to you or reading about you, you’ll be hard pressed to make many friends!

American Athlete Magazine’s Highly Anticipated Winter 2014 Issue For iPad Arrives

Interactive Magazine Features Dynamic Content Designed to Educate, Entertain and Inspire Athletes at All Levels of Competition

Continuing the momentum created by its breakout issues, American Athlete Magazine, one of the preeminent digital sports and fitness publications, announced today that its Winter 2014 issue is here and ready for download. The newest issue (American Athlete Magazine Winter 2014) is available on iPad; it can be found in the App Store for Apple iPad and the store in Apple’s Newsstand (via iPad).



“The enthusiasm for our brand, content platform, and extended media has been phenomenal,” said David Fink, founder and publisher of American Athlete Magazine. “As always, we have included interviews and insights from athletes at all levels of competition for this issue.  It is filled with educational features and inspirational stories, and capitalizes on the interactive platform to bring a unique and entertaining tablet/digital experience.”

American Athlete Magazine Winter 2014 issue’s cover story, “Showtime in Sochi,” examines the XXII Olympic Winter Games—the world’s largest and most-anticipated international athletic competition.  American Athlete presents an introduction to the sporting events and some of the athletes who are competing, including gold medal contender snowboarder and half-pipe specialist Greg Bretz. Complementing the cover story is an extended piece, “The DNA of a Champion,” focused on Sidney Crosby, the captain of Canada’s Olympic hockey team and the Pittsburgh Penguins, who attributes his success to the right genetics, determination and grit.

The recently unveiled issue also includes the following profiles that encourage readers to pursue their own sports and fitness goals:

  • “Armed and Ready with JPP”: New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul provides a glimpse into how he spends his days; his thoughts on nutrition, fitness and health; and the blood, sweat and tears that translate into his game-changing fitness abilities.
  • “Bodies in Motion with the Rockettes”: The trainer of the legendary Rockettes discusses how the group’s unwavering discipline keeps them in shape and on-point as they dance in unison for 45 minutes out of every 90-minute show—four times a day, seven days a week.
  • “Operation Fitness: Mike Torchia”: Operation Fitness owner and Elite Fitness trainer Mike Torchia talks about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and how that evolved from following his top inspiration, Jack LaLanne. He discusses the “Shape Up America” campaign, designed to motivate people across the country to increase daily physical activity and develop better eating habits.

Additional features include ‘Food For Fuel,’ nutritional tips from the L.A. Lakers head strength and conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco; ‘More Than A Marathon,’ which shares stories of Chicago Marathon runners and their sources of inspiration; and ‘The Game Changer,’ with professional athlete and actor Mark Eisenhart, who tells readers about the key life decisions that helped him transform his very unhealthy body into one in prime physical condition.

“American Athlete Magazine transcends the traditional sports and fitness publishing model both in the content and experience we provide. Our athletes, trainers, sponsors, partners, and other participants are passionate about sports and fitness,” stated Fink. “Our magazine is geared towards addressing their needs with rich content including sports medicine, mental toughness, personal training, human interest stories, nutrition, and other takeaways that go well beyond the routine sports coverage and fitness tips offered in many current industry publications.”

American Athlete’s expansion is a direct result of its fast-growing audience, which includes its e-newsletter subscribers (who are now in the hundreds of thousands) and Facebook followers (over 11,000) who have shared images and videos of themselves sporting their American Athlete gear. The magazine has garnered ringing endorsements from leading sponsors Body Armor, Operation Fitness, SportsUp and Europa Sports.
