The move combines the firm’s global expertise with ReviveHealth’s business focus to include health-related systems and services

 Weber Shandwick has acquired ReviveHealth, a premier integrated marketing communications firm for health-related systems, services, and technology in the United States. The agency’s specialisation is in patient-centric strategies around complex health and treatment issues.

“We’re extremely pleased to add another best-in-class firm that complements our integrated service offerings and that adds the specialised expertise our clients are seeking,” said Andy Polansky (pictured), CEO of Weber Shandwick. Healthcare has been among the network’s fastest growing practice areas.

The takeover combines the firm’s global expertise in pharma, provider communications, scientific communications, and health public affairs with ReviveHealth’s focus on the business of healthcare to include systems, services, technology, device and diagnostic companies, physician groups, and wellness and population health companies.

ReviveHealth is headquartered in Nashville, the leading health services market in the United States. Also, it has offices in Minneapolis and Santa Barbara. Meanwhile, Roger Fischer of RF Consulting served as transaction advisor to the company.

“Joining the Weber Shandwick family accelerates our transformation and brings value-adding capabilities into the mix. Branding, digital strategy, content marketing, public affairs, and other deep capabilities that it has invested in will be hugely important to our current and future clients,” said Brandon Edwards, CEO of ReviveHealth.
