  2. Vila Health: Marketing Plan
    Overview
    Effective marketing plans begin with thorough external environmental  and internal organizational assessments, alignment with strategic plans,  and clear identification of directional strategies. The marketing plan  must reflect logic, cohesion, realistic interventions and costs, and  ideally work with the strengths and opportunities that fit the overall  context of the proposed service line. In this assignment, you will  develop a conceptual level marketing plan for St. Anthony Medical  Center’s Labor and Delivery service line, which is based on your  assessment. Additionally, the marketing plan will include evidence-based  recommendations and your creative insights regarding how to optimally  position and communicate the Labor and Delivery service line to  prospective consumers.
    Recall from your previous visit with the leadership team, that your  CEO has communicated a growth strategy for St. Anthony Medical Center.  The marketing director and leadership team have further determined that  the Labor and Delivery service will implement a market pull strategy  where consumers will be drawn to the organization based on some unique  feature or features of the service line (also known as differentiators).  You are competing against two other similar services at area hospitals,  so your marketing conceptual level recommendations will need to assure  that you have differentiated St. Anthony Medical Center’s Labor and  Delivery service in a competitive manner. Consider how a health care  organization might differentiate it’s service from a competitor (review  your Unit 2 readings or conduct research in the Capella University  Library on strategic marketing and differentiation strategies). You may  wish to reflect on some of the facets that you as a consumer consider  when selecting health care providers and organizations.
    Your marketing director and the Labor and Delivery unit manager would  like to discover your fresh perspective and recommendations. At a  conceptual level, given the organization’s desired target versus actual  performance, what suggestions might you offer to convert prospective  consumers into satisfied Labor and Delivery patients? Remember to assess  gaps between actual performance versus desired targets (review the  current Labor and Delivery budget to determine current versus targeted  number of deliveries, profit margin, and so forth).
    This all corresponds with steps four and five of Kotler’s Marketing Plan format in Health Care Marketing. Savvy interns will read the assignment scoring guides and construct an outline before beginning research for this activity.
    Last week, you were exposed to a lot of information about St. Anthony  Medical Center in general and the Labor and Delivery unit in  particular. You may want to consider reviewing those documents,  interviews and e-mails again while working on this unit’s assignment.
