Case Study: Bronx Lebanon – What’s in a Name?



In 2014 NY finalized terms & conditions with the federal government for a groundbreaking waiver that allowed state to reinvest $8B in federal savings generated by Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) reforms.  The waiver amendment allowed for comprehensive reform through a Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. The DSRIP program promotes community-level collaborations & focus on system reform, specifically to achieve a 25% reduction in avoidable hospital use over five years.


L2L was engaged by Bronx Lebanon Hospital to:

-Develop the umbrella name for the DSRIP that would rally constituents and  key stakeholders in an authentic and impactful way.

-Development of the branding communication platform (name/logo) including the style/brand guide for the selected umbrella name.
