Barnes Health, a West Virginia and Nashville-based full-service strategic health care advertising, marketing and public relations firm, received 21 Telly Awards at the 41st annual Telly Awards national competition based in New York.

“These awards are a direct reflection of the quality of clients Barnes Health represents and how they empower our team to be strategically creative and think outside the box,” Barnes Health President and CEO Jeff Barnes said in a news release announcing the awards.

Barnes Health received a total of 15 awards for television production work associated with campaigns produced for Pikeville Medical Center. The 15 total awards for Pikeville Medical Center represent more in the hospital category than were achieved by any other hospital in America entered in this year’s competition.

“Our team is extremely humbled to have received this number of Telly Awards this year,” Barnes said.

The agency also received three awards for television production for Pleasant Valley Hospital, two for television production for Huntington Federal Savings Bank and one for a video produced for HD Media.

“Having our work recognized on a national stage is valuable as we continue to expand our footprint toward serving the marketing needs of health care providers throughout the country,” Barnes said.

Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards is the premier award honoring outstanding regional and national television commercials as well as the nation’s finest video and film productions. The national and international competition receives over 12,000 entries annually from all 50 states and many foreign countries.
