Yelp jumps into local SEO arena with hospital reviews

Make room at the table for Yelp. In addition to posting customer reviews about tasty—or not-so-tasty—tilapia or tacos, the public review website is venturing into health care.

A recent post from CEO Jeremy Stoppelman says Yelp has signed a deal with ProPublica, a Pulitzer Prize-winning nonprofit investigative newsroom. The information is compiled by ProPublica and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Yelp will incorporate health care statistics and consumer opinion data onto the Yelp business pages of more than 25,000 medical treatment facilities in the U.S., says Stoppelman. They include:

• More than 4,500 hospitals

• Some 15,000 nursing homes

• Approximately 6,300 dialysis clinics

Hover text on the business page will explain the statistics, which include the number of serious deficiencies and fines per nursing home, as well as emergency room wait times for hospitals, according to Stoppelman’s post.

With the addition of Yelp, health care providers will have to keep a closer eye on their providers’ online reputations. This can be balanced with local SEO to attract new patients.

This infographic offers a variety of ways hospitals and practices can use inbound links for local events and onsite optimization to promote conveniences and specialty services in their communities.

Ventas buys private hospital chain for $1.75B

Ventas Inc. will pay $ 1.75 billion for Ardent Medical Services Inc. and will spin off most of its skilled nursing facilities into a publicly traded real estate investment trust. Chicago-based Ventas, a real estate investment trust focusing on health care facilities, is expanding its for-profit hospital operations with the buyout of Nashville, Tenn.-based Ardent.

It operates in three markets: Albuquerque, N.M.; Amarillo, Texas; and Tulsa, Okla. Ventas said the move is expected to add up to 10 cents to its funds from operations in the first full year following the closing of the deal.

The Topsy-Turvy World of Hospital Deals

Eight years ago, executive and board leaders at Sentara Healthcare in Norfolk, Virginia, threw down a strategic gauntlet: It was time to make a big shift and focus on new growth. Since then, the nonprofit health system has been ramping up its presence in its home state of Virginia and continues to evaluate opportunities for partnerships in other states. ?Sentara?s evolution as an IDN is similar to many other health systems nationally in that our delivery system was largely centered in one geographic region,? says Megan Perry, corporate vice president of mergers and acquisitions. ?In 2006, as we looked at the national landscape, we realized that in order to meet the needs of the current communities we served, as well as make the necessary investments in technology and innovation, that we needed to continue to grow.? Between 2010 and 2014, Sentara merged with five hospitals and has entered into new partnerships with Ohio Health, in Columbus, Ohio, as well as with Huntsville Hospital Health System in Alabama. Today, Sentara encompasses more than 100 sites of care, including 12 acute care hospitals, five medical groups, and a health plan; it offers postacute, outpatient, and urgent care services, among others.
