Gordon Hospital’s Marketing and Public Relations department was recently honored with two national medical marketing awards, called Aster Awards. The department won a silver award in the category of publication/external—single for its entry: Whole Health: Fulfilling the Mission and a bronze award in the direct mail piece—single category for its entry Gordon Urology.
This year there were more than 3,000 entries from across the country with 8 Judge's Choice Trophies, 370 Gold Certificates, 280 Silver Certificates, and 280 Bronze Certificates awarded.
The Aster Awards are a national awards program, which allows healthcare organizations and advertising agencies to compete against similarly sized competitors from across the nation. Each year, the Aster Awards has an annual contest allowing entries designed, printed and/or distributed the previous year to be scored and judged for the possibility of receiving Gold, Silver, or Bronze awards. Entries with a perfect score receive the coveted Judge’s Choice Award.
The Aster Awards is hosted by Creative Images, Inc., an internationally recognized firm that has specialized in strategic healthcare marketing for more than 14 years. The winners will be published in the May/June issue of Marketing Healthcare
Today, a full-color magazine distributed throughout the country.
“We are extremely proud of this honor,” says Kim Brazell, director of marketing and public relations for Gordon Hospital. “It is nice to have the country’s most creative individuals recognize the work of our department. Our team continually strives to create a unique marketing piece while still living up to our Gordon Hospital brand and fulfilling our mission.”
The Marketing and Public Relations department is composed of Brazell and Christie Carlson, who serves as marketing coordinator.
