Baptist Health Care earns two silver ADDY Awards at the local American Advertising Awards


Baptist brought home two silver ADDY Awards at the local American Advertising Awards on Saturday. Baptist’s marketing department and Foundation collaborated with Appleyard Agency on two videos that shared the heartwarming stories of two patients who received groundbreaking care at Baptist. One tells the story of a local pastor who suffered from long-term, debilitating back pain for over 20 years and was treated by Baptist neurosurgeons. He now lives a pain-free and fulfilling life. The other video details the journey of a mother who needed lifesaving treatment immediately after giving birth and is now enjoying life with her husband and rambunctious 2-year-old.

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries every year in local AAF Club competitions across the nation.

The winning videos can be seen here:
