After launching this campaign, new and established orthopedic care patient visits were up and ortho-specific website visitors and views hit all-time highs; same for social media engagement.
An iconic brand with a broad presence in eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey, St. Luke’s sought greater brand awareness of its line of orthopedic services: joint reconstruction, physical therapy, sports medicine and more. Standing in the nearly 150-year-old health network’s way? A competitive local market.
To separate St. Luke’s, we created an integrated ad campaign featuring the tagline, “Extraordinary Care in Motion,” and anchored it by depicting real-life doctors in relaxed, yet professional settings. We also introduced a brand new name for the entire department: St. Luke’s Orthopedic Care. We blanketed the region with a diverse campaign utilizing digital and traditional advertising tactics to reach a broad audience.
Advertising is in Ernie’s DNA as he’s a third-generation family member to join the business his late grandfather founded. With that pedigree comes an almost six sense of identifying the “it factor” needed to create campaigns that spark customers to action. Ernie (or ET) uses his outgoing personality to connect with clients to build strong collaborative relationships. He digs deep to uncover new opportunities that will make a measurable difference for each client’s business. A graduate of Eastern University and Saint Joseph’s University (MBA), he has the book smarts and experience to elevate brand communications with strategies that challenge the status quo. He’s always guiding Team SWBR toward the correct target audiences, smartest campaign messages, right digital channels and best traditional tactics suited to boost sales.
When he’s not working, Ernie enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. He’s also an avid golfer still searching for his first hole-in-one.
