Would you rather be sick or well?


Of course, I want to be well. Who wants to be sick? For years, we at The Adams Group have been championing the idea that hospitals should promote overall well being throughout life as a significant component of their services. Instead of just being a place to go when you are ill, be the go to place for health and wellness.

It seems that the healthcare consumer is craving this too. A recent Pew Internet study found that online searches for exercise and fitness jumped 88 percent since 2002. At 38 percent it is now third in all health topic searches behind medical problem at 49 percent and treatment at 41 percent.

People know that hospitals can make them well, but like I said no one wants to be sick. Maybe it is time for them to know that hospitals can also help keep them well. Take the lead for health and wellness in your community.
