Devaney & Associates Wins Two First-Place Awards for Mid-Atlantic Healthcare Marketing Excellence


Devaney & Associates, a full-service advertising, marketing, and public relations agency, received two first-place Awards of Excellence from the Mid-Atlantic Society for Healthcare Strategy and Market Development (MASHSMD). Covering Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, the MASHSMD Marketing Excellence Awards celebrate the most outstanding work in the healthcare marketing and public relations industry from 2016.

A Healthy Dose magazine, a publication Devaney & Associates created for client Carroll Hospital, won the first-place 2017 Award of Excellence: Newsletters and Reports. The release of the tri-annual publication was followed by a spike in patient requests for nearly every featured service and program. The publication was so well received by the community in and out of the hospital that both physicians and patients were honored to tell their stories and be featured in the magazine.

The 2016 annual report that Devaney & Associates created for client Chase Brexton Health Care was awarded the first-place 2017 Award of Excellence: Potpourri Category based on creativity. This report garnered praise and awe from the organization’s employees, helping to pull the community back together after a recent organizational shake-up.

“When you have a partnership built on trust and admiration, like we do with Chase Brexton, it gives everyone the freedom to do unexpected and inspiring work. The annual report is a testament to that,” said Casey Boccia, creative director, Devaney & Associates. “With its bold design and moving stories, it’s the antithesis of the traditional dry annual report.”

“Our creative team specializes in writing and designing first-class publications that promote our brands and educate and engage our clients’ audiences,” said Diane Devaney, president, Devaney & Associates. “We are proud to work with both Carroll Hospital and Chase Brexton and honored these projects were selected among the best in healthcare marketing in the region.”

The awards were announced at the MASHSMD 2017 Spring Conference Awards Luncheon in Charlottesville, VA.
