FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Life Gift Cards Selects CPR Strategic Marketing Communications to
Power Innovative Medical Gift Cards
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO / ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. – February 15, 2012– CPR Strategic Marketing Communications (CPR) will direct the national launch of Life Gift Cards (LGC), producers of first-of-a-kind health and wellness gift cards for medical services. The initial product offering is for mammograms, which sometimes cost up to $250. Individuals can purchase gift cards at (866) 831-1233 or online, and recipients may redeem the cards at the more than 320,000 physicians, 5,000 hospitals, 60,000 pharmacies and 81,000 dentists participating nationwide.
“Over 80 million Americans are under- or uninsured and cannot afford life-saving procedures,” says Michelle Marte, founder of LCG. “CPR’s expert marketing and communication initiatives will be the first steps towards establishing a nationwide, life-saving trend. We look forward to working with CPR’s seasoned team of marketing experts.”
LGC collaborates with a leading provider of healthcare revenue and payment cycle management, and clinical information exchange solutions, to power its business model, which will begin making more medical services available for gifting. Participating health providers benefit from increased sales, opportunities for enhanced customer service, and community outreach.
Joseph Carabello, president and CEO of CPR Strategic Marketing Communications states, “CPR is proud to lead this significant endeavor. Because mammograms find between 85 and 90 percent of breast cancers at a very early stage — when the cancer is most curable — the ability to give this service to someone who could not otherwise afford it can be life-changing. We look forward to aiding this effort, as well as to promoting the many other medical services that will become available.”
