We thrive in the ever-changing, never-simple world of healthcare
We bring hospitals a winning combination of proven experience, political thinking and a passion for innovation.
Lives depend on what happens within your walls. You face daily scrutiny on all sides—from your patients, the competition, government officials, and even your own nurses and physicians.
To communicate confidently requires absolute assurance that you have the reliable guidance and unfailing support of a respected authority in the hospital industry.
Jarrard Inc. is the premier provider for strategic hospital communications—from the never-ending responsibilities of communications engineering and reputation building through the uncommon, but critical situations of M&A campaigns, crisis communications and issue management.
In a world filled with challenges, our hospitals win.
Jarrard Inc. Speaks
We focus solely on healthcare because the hospital industry is large, dynamic and truly “life-and-death” important in rural Mississippi as well as downtown Chicago. There is nowhere this industry doesn’t matter. There is a real and urgent need for the unique service we provide. The work matters, the challenges are significant and success (or failure) is tangible. As specialists, we believe we are the absolute best in the nation at what we do. Because as specialists, we can be very successful yet remain an intimate and focused shop of expert professionals.
America’s hospitals serve as the front line of health for our nation. They have significant political power they can mobilize and use in good times and bad. But most of them don’t know they have this strength, or how to build it, or how to use it. Our firm is specifically designed and run to help hospital leaders to recognize this power: to nurture it, to marshal it and to wield it with authority and success.
We’re passionate about healthcare, about our clients and their goals, and about the work we do. We’re honest and candid, even when it’s hard, and tempered always with kindness. We challenge ourselves to be creative. Creative solutions – shaped by our experience – enhance our value to our clients and make us a better firm. We prize self-awareness in our firm and in each professional; we are honest about our strengths (and our weaknesses) with our clients and each other.
We’ve got each other’s back, plain and simple. We work to live (not the other way around) and we respect each other’s priorities. We’re responsible to the team, to the firm, and to our clients.
