It is a fairly straight one.
Only option C talks about the facilities comparison between the hospital in consideration and the other ones.
Rest all the options talk about unrelated things.

If people have been choosing other hospitals offering better amenities than the amenities available in the hospitals involved then providing new and better amenities and marketing techniques of advertising them will be effective. When people will hear that these hospitals are also offering new amenities , they may choose these hospitals instead of choosing other hospitals..

Option C is correct.
