Sutter Health

The Sutter Health CPMC Van Ness Campus hospital in San Francisco, California opened in early 2019. The site promised to be the most seismically safe hospital in the West while also providing sorely needed emergency room, obstetrics and surgical services to the downtown area. LCI positioned this new location as the linchpin in the revitalization of San Francisco’s Van Ness Avenue.

LCI also created mass coverage during National Nurses Week by newsjacking the royal birth. LCI turned to labor and delivery nurse and crochet queen June Shiraki for her support to localize the global story. June crocheted a set of “royal crowns” for newborns who would share the same birthday as the royal baby. On May 6, royal watchers around the world learned that Duchess Meghan had delivered her baby and LCI moved swiftly to invite local media to witness the “crowning” of the Bay Area’s own newborn arrivals.


  • National coverage including Access Hollywood, Associated Press, Inside Edition,, USA Today, San Francisco Business Times, San Francisco Examiner, and many more
  • The royal birth newsjacking resulted in extensive media coverage:
    • More than 100 news networks across the country picked up Inside Edition or KPIX (CBS) segments on the story
    • The total number of print, online and broadcast impressions exceeded 30 million
    • More than 5,780 engagements across Facebook and Twitter
    • Inside Edition’s article received 2,600+ Twitter engagements, 1,400+ Facebook reactions, 94 comments and 347 shares
    • ABC News Twitter video was viewed more than 100,000 times
    • The UK Consulate in San Francisco praised CPMC on Twitter for its clever idea to honor the royal baby

LCI developed a public relations plan that focused on the shopping experience, such as seasonal products, holiday promotions and unique food items. Our strategy was to keep WFM top of mind so that they became a top resource and expert in food trends and issues.
