Finding the right grants and getting funded is what it's all about. Let our team navigate the daunting process of culling through the many available grants to find the ones that will work for you. Grant procurement is a very competitive business. From private foundation grants, to federal programs, we know how to target our research and match you with grants that not only meet your needs, but are also the most likely to get funded.
Federal grant programs have a number of offerings at any time that are focused on rural, district, or critical access hospitals. Because we have worked directly with the office that oversees many of these grants, we are able to gain invaluable advice and insights that greatly increase the success of our grant proposals. We offer very cost effective ways to get you into the grant application pipeline and help you get the money you need for equipment, infrastructure, new construction, telemedicine, and more.

Building confidence and presenting a caring and kind face to your patients, is vital. We're adept at creating a PR package that helps you reach out and connect to your community in ways that build trust and allow potential patients to see the range of services, the commitment to access to care, and your willingness to go the extra mile to get your patients the quality care they need.We can help you craft your external and internal communications with this in mind. We can write and submit articles to your local newspapers that help build this connection with your community. And, we can parlay those articles into much more than a one time media hit by spreading them across social media channels and your website blog, as well as creating newspaper and social media ads based on the article's themes.
We're adept at writing copy that will boost your ability to recruit providers to notoriously difficult to fill positions at hospitals like yours.

We have rewritten recruiter's copy countless times to reflect who our clients really are and what they're truly looking for.

This is one of our greatest strengths. Let us help you be your very best.GET MORE INFO
