KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Dobies Health Marketing is celebrating national and state recognition in 2022 for several of its clients’ campaign initiatives.
Together, the strategy-first healthcare marketing agency and its clients were awarded for creative excellence with Tellys, Aster awards and Healthcare Advertising awards – for which they were selected among thousands of entries from across the country – as well as Emerald awards for advertising in Kansas.
“With the goal of making a real difference in people’s lives, our clients had the vision to work with us in developing and executing the creative strategies and concepts that ultimately garnered these exceptional awards,” said Thom Ludtke, Vice President of Creative Services at Dobies Health Marketing. “We are fortunate to have so many forward-thinking clients who understand the power of creative advertising to move hearts and minds.”
This year’s winning creative campaigns included:
Orthopaedics Campaign: “Life Is Better in Motion”
Client: Liberty Hospital
Awards: Silver Telly, Silver Aster, Silver Healthcare Advertising
With a physician team that provides the advanced level of orthopaedic care and sports medicine normally only found at large academic medical centers, Liberty Hospital needed to build awareness of its strengths in greater Kansas City’s Northland. This TV spot was part of a multimedia campaign centered around how “Life is better in motion” for people of all ages, athletes and non-athletes alike. View the multi-award-winning TV spot below:
Brand Campaign: “This Is What Healthy Feels Like”
Client: Swope Health
Award: Silver Telly
Swope Health, the local community’s leading provider for the underserved, is committed to easily accessible, whole-person care for every patient. This television spot and integrated campaign were designed to communicate their promise and how they deliver on it by making care visible and accessible for everyone.

Oncology Campaign: “Hope Is Closer Than You Think”
Client: LMH Health
Award: Silver Telly, Emerald
LMH Health’s cancer campaign went inside the minds of people fighting cancer, showcasing empathy for their concerns and featuring people and familiar places from within the local Lawrence, Kansas, community. The purpose of the spot (and the rest of the multimedia campaign) was to let people know there’s no need to travel elsewhere for excellent cancer care. View the Telly-winning spot below:
Video: “Corona Country: Solving the PPE Crisis in Rural America”
At the height of the pandemic’s PPE shortage, Heart4Heroes – a joint effort between the National Rural Health Association, Project C.U.R.E., Angel Flight Central and Angel Flight West – was born. As a fundraising and awareness initiative to support frontline medical staff at rural and critical access hospitals, Heart4Heroes requested a promotional video sharing the real stories and perspectives of medical staff from America’s rural communities. It was quite an adventure! View the award-winning video below:
Mammography Campaign: “Turn Screen Time into Screening Time”
Client: LMH Health
Each year, the average person spends several hundred hours on activities like social media and watching TV – if they can invest that much time into everyday activities, surely they can invest just one hour per year in taking care of breast health. That was the inspiration behind this fun and playful TV spot for LMH Health mammography that encouraged women over 40 to turn a little bit of their “screen time” into “screening time.” View the Emerald Award-winning spot below:
Website: Corporate Healthcare Staffing and Long-Term Care Residential
Client: Advena Group
After a rebrand, Advena Group needed a new website to reflect the new identity and build awareness of the company’s two services lines (Advena Healthcare Staffing and Advena Living). The site needed simple navigation and engaging content for each of its distinct audiences to tell the Advena story and generate new leads for its staffing division and residential long-term care facilities.
