Magi Curtis

Partner, National Practice Leader

Magi Curtis is a seasoned public affairs advisor bringing a depth of healthcare expertise to our team. As founder of our government relations practice area, Curtis specializes in building government relations programs for our clients from the ground up, assessing and re-engineering a client’s current efforts, or developing and implementing strategic plans for specific issue campaigns. Ultimately, she works with clients to develop and execute plans that enable them to achieve their strategic business goals.

Curtis also guides clients through a multitude of efforts outside the government relations arena, including significant issue campaigns, strategic partnerships, positioning (or repositioning) efforts, government investigations and crisis events. Prior to joining the firm, Curtis spent years with the National Association of Children’s Hospitals (now the Children’s Hospital Association). Under her guidance, member hospitals built and grew their advocacy capacity to reach legislative goals. In addition, Curtis lobbied in Washington, D.C., on behalf of healthcare and tax clients at Navigant Consulting. She also served for U.S. Sen. Mike DeWine, first on the campaign trail during his successful 2000 re-election campaign and later as legislative staff in D.C., focused on healthcare and children’s issues. Before working for DeWine, Curtis began her career in the government relations office at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Curtis authored the first-of-its-kind nationwide benchmarking report “The Rise of Hospital Government Relations,” which analyzes data from health systems on how they structure and invest in their government relations programs, utilize contract lobbyists, determine goals, measure success and more.

Curtis is a graduate of The Ohio State University.
