“As a former vice president of marketing and public relations of three large health systems, I know first hand the importance of healthcare branding, image and growth in patient revenue. During this 20 year period, I struggled to locate a marketing firm with significant expertise in healthcare. As a result, I decided to start my own. Thus, the healthcare division of Barnes Agency was born.”
Jeffrey M. Barnes, President and CEO
