GCI Health is thrilled to have been named Global Healthcare Agency of the Year by The Holmes Report for the second time. Earlier this year, the agency was named North American Healthcare Agency of the Year for the third time and Best of the Best Agencies to Work For. In addition, GCI Health received a Global SABRE for the third time. The Global SABRE Awards recognize the 40 best public relations programs of the past year, from around the globe, selected from among the winners of their regional competitions.
The SABRE Awards – which include competitions for the Americas, EMEA and the Asia-Pacific region –attract over 5,000 entries from more than 60 countries, so winners of the Global awards are the elite of the elite, representing best practice in categories ranging from social media to social responsibility, from public affairs to employee communications.
GCI Health has been described by Paul Holmes, Founder and Chair of The Holmes Report as “a team providing a balance of stability and restless innovation that has seen the integration of social media and content creation and a willingness to ‘break the rules’ (in a good way) of traditionally staid healthcare marketing” and “arguably the hottest healthcare firm in the US right now.”
In this ever-changing healthcare environment, the agency is considered thought-leaders and their goal is to always “do something different” for their clients, colleagues and the community.
GCI Health is beyond excited to have been named Best Agency to Work for by The Holmes Report. This honor is a true testament to the culture we have developed leading to our incredible employee retention rate.
In addition, The Holmes Report named GCI Health a Finalist in Healthcare Agency of the Year, an honor we were awarded in 2015 and 2011 and were finalists in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016. The winner will be announced at the SABRE Awards ceremony on May 2nd. GCI Health is also up for Pharmaceutical: RX Campaign of the Year and Medical Technology Campaign of the Year.

Wendy Lund has been named Professional of the Year at the PRNews Platinum Awards. Through instilling in GCI Health staff to “dream bigger” and think differently, we’ve been able to continue the evolution of the agency’s offering and the exponential expansion of our client base. Her insights on work-life balance and gender equality in the workplace led her to become a contributing blogger for Working Mother. She’s also been called upon by various industry trades to provide thought-leadership on healthcare topics such as Zika virus and vaccines to agency topics such as employee engagement and building a strong company culture.
In addition, GCI Health received Honorable Mention for Midsize Agency of the Year and our work with Merck on America’s Diabetes Challenge garnered two honorable mentions in Best Media Event and Best PSA.
