The Chennai based SIMS (SRM Institutes for Medical Science) Hospital is one of the leading super speciality quaternary care hospitals in Tamil Nadu and our regular client. Since regular news coverage will have no news value, we constantly devise innovative strategies to get them coverage. We motivated them to share different and unique topics which have given us a good response from the media – rare surgeries, exclusive surgeries on foreign patients, launch of new facilities. This keeps the news flowing and regular coverage in leading print, electronic and online media. We also have daily news tracking activity set up for them.

MGM Healthcare

MGM Healthcare is a sophisticated and premium healthcare facility in Chennai. One of the top Tamil Nadu Government Ministers had been admitted here for some health care. Focussing on the healthcare angle, the hospital shared a press release of this news with the media and wanted us to track all the electronic media that had covered the news. Within a day’s time, we tracked all major TV channels that covered the news. We are proud to be the only one in Tamil Nadu to offer this kind of a service. Our timely work was much appreciated.
