A Careful Rebranding

Hunter Health was created in 1977 to offer care to Native Americans who needed it most. Today, the healthcare provider serves all who need care in Wichita, Kan., and the surrounding region.

The clinic came to Howerton+White with a clear goal — to rebrand the growing organization but not walk away from how it began. The mission was to define who they are today while keeping their Native American roots in mind.

That started by updating its brand promise to: “Care that embraces all of us.

"Our brand identity refresh reinforces our commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of everyone in our community."

Research Informs Insights

Our process begins with a comprehensive research phase to ensure we deeply understand our client’s landscape. We conducted a thorough communication audit for Hunter Health, delving into its existing messaging strategies and brand positioning. Our competitor analysis provided insights into the competitive landscape, allowing us to identify opportunities for differentiation. Through audience research and keyword research, we gained valuable insights into Hunter Health’s target audience and their language, allowing us to tailor our marketing efforts.

Creating Clarity With Brand Identity

To elevate Hunter Health’s brand presence and effectively communicate its unique value proposition, we worked with its internal teams to refine its brand foundation. We integrated its existing brand language into our visual positioning and digital design strategies. We updated their logo to clarify their brand expression, allowing for better digital application and a more cohesive and consistent brand identity. A brand atlas was the final step in ensuring a fully integrated brand across all touchpoints, helping Hunter Health better position and differentiate itself in the marketplace.

Integrated Care Model Informs User Journey

Hunter Health utilizes an integrated care model that provides patients with access to all necessary medical, dental, behavioral, vision, and pharmacy services, a unique approach not commonly found in low-cost clinics. To effectively communicate their story and establish a positive relationship with patients, Hunter Health collaborated with H+W to develop a user-friendly website that facilitates connection. The website is HIPAA-compliant, which ensures patient privacy. Visitors can easily find the right page to learn more and make appointments. The website includes strong calls-to-action, like contact or click-to-call buttons, on essential pages to encourage higher conversions.

Optimizing A Website to Increase Donations

Through strategic streamlining of the user experience, H+W helped the clinic reach several goals, including making it easier for users to donate by increasing visibility and lowering the entry barrier. Hunter Health also wanted to introduce an active blog to showcase its expertise, make provider pages more accessible, and provide easy access to important pages such as the patient portal and billing. And, of course, highlight their comprehensive range of services on the website.
