Jarrard, Phillips, Cate & Hancock is proud to serve the healthcare industry exclusively, with a mission to make healthcare better. Over the last 15 years, our strategic communications consulting team has partnered with hundreds of leading healthcare organizations to navigate change, challenge and opportunity. We have a track record for helping health services companies successfully launch, scale, pivot and advance growth goals. In healthcare, we understand there are significant barriers to change: entrenched brands, shifting politics, noise in the marketplace and risk-averse traditional players.

Jarrard Inc. offers a collaborative, supportive environment, driven by teams of experts. Our team of former healthcare executives, journalists and political operatives is built to serve the unique needs and challenges of national health systems, regional and community health systems, as well as health services companies. We’re strategically based in two hubs of the American healthcare industry – Nashville and Chicago.

We’re currently seeking a Practice Vice President to join our Health Services practice, to be based in our Chicago office. Qualified candidates will have experience helping healthcare clients advance their growth goals and strategic initiatives, create a valuable market position to attract talent, financing and sales, capture opportunities to truly change healthcare, and protect the value of a strong reputation in times of crisis.
