Everything sends a message about what you value

Healthcare provider mission statement
Wow, can’t help but wonder how many patients care about the first sentence.


Tattered sign in medical office
Everything speaks. What does a front and center sign (first thing you see) say to a new patient?


Everything sends a message to customers:

  • People (employees)
  • Processes (policies, procedures, tasks)
  • Place (physical, virtual, phone, forms, etc)

During tomorrow’s arrival for our Son’s colonoscopy, betting i’ll see more.

PS. During yesterday’s dry run drive and office visit, i snapped the two photos. When i left i couldn’t get the (only) patient exit door open. The receptionist said, “You have to push really hard.”

  1. Oh my. I enjoyed this post. Not many people notice these details. I love that first sentence maybe they can use some of that financial success to fix the door soon. If you pay attention, signs like that are everywhere. Made me chuckle.

  2. We had an amazing day. Heard names I haven’t heard in years. Brought back so many in-tapped memories.
