Galen Chandler’s Story

Integrated marketing campaign on behalf of Deaf Smith County Hospital District

Located in the heart of the Texas panhandle, approximately 40 miles southwest of Amarillo, Hereford is a thriving agriculture community known widely as the beef capital of the world for its vast cattle feeding operations and ranching. With other booming industries such as oil and gas and meat-packing operations, accidents happen and require a strong trauma program to ensure their team can maintain a well-trained, well-equipped emergency response. In a routine strategic planning session, HRMC leaders mentioned a patient’s close call with a rattlesnake, and the Groundswell Health team knew it would be a message that would resonate especially as legislators considered crucial rural healthcare funding and other rural hospitals struggle to invest and maintain profitability.

When Galen Chandler was bitten by a rattlesnake, he knew that Hereford Regional Medical Center’s team had the resources to save his life. Groundswell Health’s team traveled to Hereford, Texas to interview Galen and the client’s staff and leadership to produce a fully-realized campaign promoting the client’s excellent critical trauma care when seconds count for patients like Galen. The campaign includes a video, three blog articles, a radio ad, and social graphics for organic and paid search and display ads.
