Walmart Christmas Beer Tree Display To Be Used In Hospital Marketing.

There's just something very American  special about going to Walmart.  Where else can you get a flu shot discount if you choose instead to use their unprofessional nurses.  Are you looking for some Walmart parking lot humor?    Look no further than The Happy Hospitalist to find that special jacked up camouflage Volkswagon parked at your local Wally World.   And don't even get me started on Walmart's keg policy.    Looking for some interesting conversation?  Just talk to some Walmart customers.  You can learn stuff that will boggle your mind.

Walmart is a gold mine filled with odd American culture that only us Walmericans can appreciate.  Nowhere else in the world can you find Christmas celebrated with a Christmas tree made out of Budweiser boxes and decorated with cheap garland.  Yes folks, Walmart is proud to present their Christmas beer tree for your shopping enjoyment and entertainment.

I'll tell you what, though, I'm impressed with their marketing efforts.  Walmart is  one of the largest retail outfits in the world.  They know how to get to the hearts and wallets of their customers.  That's why I'm recommending hospitals follow their lead.  With catastrophic ObamaCare cuts looming and patient satisfaction at the forefront of hospital administrators' minds I think hospitals should consider setting up  Christmas beer trees in their lobbies as well to drive revenue and improve their operating margins.

Patients could purchase a case of beer from the Christmas beer tree to help deal with their  chemo or bypass surgery.    Friends and family could take a case home to wallow in the misery of their loved one's  bad diagnosis and prognosis during Christmas.   The Christmas beer tree could also provide an opportunity for generous patrons to donate a case of beer to a homeless drunk down the road as a way of saying thank you for not begging at their corner Walmart for the next day or two while they complete their Christmas shopping.

It may sound silly, but this Walmart Christmas beer tree is a blessing in disguise for hospitals.  As a marketing coup, they should consider incorporating other sin trees into the mix, including, perhaps, a tobacco tree topped with a lit cigarette for dramatic effect and several  hard liquor displays as well.      Don't worry about your hospital no smoking policy.  Nobody's paying attention anyway.   The way I see it, the hospital marketing possibilities are endless.

Yes people, the Christmas spirit is alive and well at Walmart.  Make sure to look for the Christmas beer tree at your local Walmart as you scramble to find cheap and  toxic Chinese toys for your kids this shopping season.  And remember to ask your hospital to consider adding its own Christmas beer tree today.
