Ads over health care

Can someone explain why Aspen Valley Hospital finds it’s necessary to spend our health-care dollars on television, radio and print advertising? Is advertising an essential element of the Hippocratic Oath?

Seems to me health care has gone astray and is more about big business than professional and ethical standards. Another reason our insurance costs are so high.
