May 2014

This month’s Pinnacle Awards highlight is Centegra Health System for their radio advertising campaign, “HealthBeats.”


Centegra HealthBeats are one-minute radio spots that share health information with listeners of the Star 105.5 and Y103.9 radio stations, local for the northwest suburbs of Chicago. These spots give physicians and other healthcare providers one minute to educate the public about a health topic.


Centegra works with physicians and Associates to develop HealthBeats according to service line needs and program calendars. To develop the radio spots, the Marketing department researches topics that are of interest to the communities we serve. We also meet with service line representatives to learn about new procedures and state-of-the-art technology that will benefit our patients and improve the care we provide.


In addition to providing healthcare information, HealthBeats frequently welcome the public to free physician lectures and Centegra Health System programs. In the past year, attendance at physician lectures has consistently grown, many times to reach standing-room-only capacity.
