Our Firm

The healthcare industry has never been more dynamic.

Rampant consolidation. A move toward population health. Innovative solutions disrupting an established industry. Healthcare reform reforming all over again. Creative-cross industry partnerships.  The rise of consumerism.  The list is endless.

Since we launched in 2006, our firm has been right in the middle of it all, providing trusted strategic communications counsel to healthcare leaders guiding their organizations through high-stakes times of change, challenge and opportunity.

We’ve served more than 400 leading healthcare companies and health systems of all genres – from academic medical centers and national hospital systems to community and regional providers.

Today, we’re proud to be one of America’s top 10 healthcare communications firms. Based in the healthcare hubs of Nashville and Chicago, our team of highly experienced advisers includes former journalists, healthcare executives and politicos. Each has deep knowledge of the industry and is genuinely passionate about helping leaders make healthcare better.

Though we continue to grow, we’ve stayed true to our roots – helping healthcare providers of all stripes lead confidently and succeed amid a transforming industry.
