  • Hospitals and healthcare facilities get a lot of reviews online. A marketing department can now tap into one central place to see reviews from across the web and respond to reviews that were given on Google.
  • Having a surgery is never fun and patients are going to be nervous before visiting your facility. Now you can help ease their fears by creating a virtual tour to help them mentally prepare for their visit.
  • Knowing how people found your facility and what they are clicking on is essential information. Within the Google My Business dashboard you can now get these custom insights and trends with AdWords Express. This information will help your facility better understand your audience and how they engage with you.

These are just a few of the many updates Google is bringing to brick and mortar businesses including healthcare facilities.
