Samaritan Health Services’ Marketing and Public Relations Department garnered numerous national awards this year for exceptional work in the marketing industry.

Each year the department submits campaigns for award consideration. Year after year, the community magazine, Heart to Heart, receives top-level recognition and numerous comments from community members on how much they appreciate the content.

“We are fortunate to have such a talented group of creative professionals in our organization,” said Julie Manning, vice president of Marketing, Public Relations and Community Health promotion for Samaritan Health Services. “It is gratifying to see how well their efforts fare when evaluated along with some of the nation’s largest and most recognized agencies and organizations.”
