Modern Healthcare

"Lifespan and its affiliate hospitals are long-time subscribers to Modern Healthcare magazine. We also provide subscriptions for our board members to keep them informed on healthcare news and issues. In addition, our executive team receives the Daily Dose and Alerts, which are most helpful in keeping current in this business climate."

George A. Vecchione, President & CEO

Lifespan, Providence, RI

"We chose to advertise in Modern Healthcare because it has the best circulation among hospital executives. We did so after carefully reviewing all other publications and as a result, quickly built brand awareness and credibility. We continue to receive calls and generate new business as our ads appear in Modern Healthcare -- now that's results!"

David M. Shade, Managing Director

Wellspring Partners, A Huron Consulting Group Practice

"As a fairly new CEO coming from a nursing background, I find Modern Healthcare to be an essential tool to manage my hospital. It is valuable enough that I read it front to back. The financial and management content has helped me tremendously in my day-to-day operations. Of all the magazines I get each month, it is the first one I read."

Fran Chilek, RN, CEO,

Connally Memorial Medical Center, Floresville, TX

"Thank you for the great Nov. 26th issue with the presidential candidate commentaries on healthcare reform. This is a very important way to understand the candidates' platforms on the topic, much more informative than a 60-second monologue during a televised debate. I sincerely appreciate the effort that went into this."

Nicole Robinson, Marketing Coordinator

Loebl Schlossman & Hackl

"I have read Modern Healthcare for at least 20 years, and read the Daily Dose since it's inception. Both are "must" reading for any health care professional. I encourage my MHA students to read Daily Dose, to keep them current on new developments in the field, and because it's likely a Florida entity will be featured at some point. Florida's health care scene, for better or worse, is of national interest, because of the large aging population, the mix of for profit and non profit providers, and it's role as a swing state in the election of the President.

Our Public Policy class will be held during the Spring semester, beginning in January, and the 2008 campaign will be in full swing. The 2008 Campaign guide will be an indispensable tool for the students to track the campaign developments, and to more fully understand the policy positions of the leading candidates."

Advertiser Testimonials

"Modern Healthcare is the bible of the industry. It's the publication healthcare professionals turn to for information, and therefore it's the publication to be noticed in! Through our own research we found that it didn't matter if a reader was only interested in a certain segment of the industry. Executives turned to Modern Healthcare as the industry standard, in addition to a niche publication that addressed the specific issues facing their sector. Based on this research we decided to double our advertising in Modern Healthcare and hit our target audience more frequently. As a result, we were able to put our newly-formed business on the map and increase our awareness to nearly 100%!"

Leslie Krohn, Vice President of Communications

GE Healthcare Financial Services

"Modern Healthcare always finds its way to the top of my inbox, so I know it helps me get my message in front of the right people. As the nation's largest provider of hospital-based clinical outsourcing, it's important for TeamHealth to find a way of cutting through the clutter to get to our busy target audiences - the hospital C-suite. Modern Healthcare helps us do that."

Lynn Massingale, MD, FACEP, Chairman

Chief Executive Officer, TeamHealth

"As a former Chief Nursing Officer at a hospital, I know firsthand that Modern Healthcare is relied upon for industry news and information. We chose to advertise in Modern Healthcare's Classified section because of this, and as a result, we've generated enough new business to more than offset the advertising expense."

Barbara DiBenedetto, RN, MS, Senior Associate


"In 2001, when I started my new position with Medical Doctor Associates (MDA) as VP of Marketing I immediately said, 'We need to be advertising in Modern Healthcare.' My reason was based on my experience calling on CEOs and Administrators of hospitals nationwide. I have never been in the office of a hospital CEO/Administrator that Modern Healthcare wasn't in sight. That is the publication they turn to for healthcare news. One Administrator told me, 'When I want to know what is going on in healthcare, I read Modern Healthcare.' I want MDA represented in a publication that has such a broad and loyal readership."

Gloria Parrish, VP Marketing
