(LeMars) -- Last week we told you of Floyd Valley Hospital's intention to start a new marketing and advertising campaign later this fall. Mike Donlan, hospital administrator, offers a better perspective of the new marketing campaign. Donlan says the health care industry is very competitive, and Floyd Valley wanted to see how the hospital is perceived among the community. He says the hospital wanted an objective determination of its strengths and weakenesses as it proceeded with its long-term strategic plan. Sistney-Carr of Lincoln, Nebraska conducted a survey of 325 people living within the Floyd Valley marketing area. In the survey, the agency found Floyd Valley has a good reputation with the surrounding area. Among the mentioned strengths include: good staff in general, good physicians, good nurses, cleaniness, reasonable cost, and excellent care.
The survey also noted how strong of likelihood is the community willing to support the hospital. Of those surveyed, 83 percent indicated an interest in supporting the community hospital.
Donlan says the hospital has been fortunate that it hasn't had a need to build an entirely new building such as Orange City, but its present facilities have served the health care needs of the community.
