Saint Joseph Health System has expanded its online community by offering new ways to connect with its hospitals. Linking to a variety of popular social media platforms, patients, employees and the public can interact with many others while staying in touch with the organization.

“We realize that our patients and the community are obtaining health information from more sources than ever, especially through online tools such as these,” said Jeff Murphy, regional director of marketing for Saint Joseph Health System. “But more importantly, social media sites allow an ongoing and more personal relationship with members of our community.”

Those who participate in Saint Joseph’s social media networks will have access to breaking news, updates of new services and medical treatment options, event information and reminders, important health alerts, helpful links, pictures, videos, podcasts and networking opportunities. Users can write about their experiences at a Saint Joseph Health System hospital or share their stories to inspire and support others.

“People often tend to think that hospitals are only needed in times of emergency or illness. But our approach, which connects to our mission of building healthier communities, is to promote wellness through education and prevention,” Murphy said. “Through various social media vehicles, we can help more people live healthier lives, reaching them regardless of whether they ever walk through our front doors.”

Saint Joseph Health System hopes to create relationships with patients and families through its social media outlets—to establish a sense of community online where people gather for discourse and resources. “Millions of people use these sites to connect, create trusted circles and talk to each other,” said Kevin Smith, interactive marketing coordinator for Saint Joseph Health System. “Now we have a dedicated online community where they can share stories, ask for advice, and feel connected to their local hospital and in control of their own health care.”

“We find our patients and families already have emotional connections with Saint Joseph Health System,” Murphy added. “This is another way for them to connect with us. It is an extension of the patient- and family-centered care we offer every day.”
