The Chattanooga Heart Institute Launches New Advertising Campaign

December 04, 2018

CHI Memorial, in partnership with agency Preston Kelly, has launched a deeply personal advertising campaign for The Chattanooga Heart Institute to reinforce the group’s decades-long reputation as one of the nation’s top cardiovascular practices. The campaign is called “Leading, by putting you first.”

Because of its strong, historic leadership position, The Chattanooga Heart Institute cares for and serves patients from the surrounding area and beyond. As the market leader for heart health throughout the Chattanooga area, the Institute sought to strengthen its brand position and ensure it has a visible presence in a fast-growing community. The goal of the campaign is simple: focus on actual patient outcomes and demonstrate our commitment to putting the patient first.

To demonstrate this, Preston Kelly concentrated on the insight that patients need a human touch in their care: a doctor who listens and is trustworthy and committed to providing the highest-quality care. At The Institute, patients are treated with medical excellence in an environment of compassion and integrity. Patients are at the center of everything at The Institute, and medicine is more than a job for these doctors—it’s a personal relationship.

“For these heart patients, it’s important to find a doctor who listens to them, taking into account everything from family history to lifestyle, and then creates a treatment plan tailored to their individual needs and goals,” said Peter Tressel, Creative Director at Preston Kelly. “This campaign articulates how personalized and caring that experience feels at The Institute.”

The campaign is comprised of two television spots, two print ads, two radio spots, two OOH billboards. It began airing September 11 in Chattanooga and the surrounding area.
