Our Story

Entering our second decade at Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock, we’ve earned the role of trusted advisor to many of the nation’s leading and most innovative healthcare systems.

We launched in 2006, focusing exclusively on healthcare, and achieved rapid success with our fast-paced, winning campaigns using the tools of politics to communicate issues like mergers and acquisitions, rally support (or opposition) for CONs and navigate crises.

Five years later as the national demand for communication strategy grew, we added a second office in Chicago, the epicenter of healthcare trade media. We narrowed our attention to focus solely on providers of care, whom we believe have a unique – and highly complex – set of needs.

Ranked a top 15 healthcare communications firm since 2010, we have guided clients in over 40 states to achieve goals in the midst of rampant change. Built on a platform of $32 billion in M&A transactional campaigns, we have grown from an organization widely recognized for winning, issue-oriented campaigns to a healthcare strategic communications and engagement firm leading long-term transformational initiatives.
