Gettysburg, PA (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
Graphcom, a full-service marketing and communications firm in Gettysburg, Pa., today announced it has received an Alfred Knight Award for Excellence from the Maryland Society for Healthcare Strategy and Market Development (MSHSMD). The awards were presented during MSHSMD’s annual Alfred Knight Marketing Excellence Awards luncheon April 4 at the Sheraton Columbia Town Center Hotel in Columbia, Md. Graphcom was recognized for its work in the direct mail/email category for the Righttime Medical Care services mailer.
This is the first time Graphcom has both entered submissions for and received an award from MSHSMD, Maryland’s premier organization for professionals in the health-care marketing field. The Righttime Medical Care services mailer was designed using the graphic design services of Graphcom Creative and the printing and in-house mailing services of Graphcom.
Righttime Medical Care’s urgent care centers operate in several major metropolitan areas in the state of Maryland. Righttime offers common illness and injury treatment, sports injury and concussion care, sports physicals, X-rays, laboratory and prescription services, and trauma care. Their 11 locations in Maryland, with two additional sites planned for opening this spring, are open for walk-in and by-appointment patients 7 a.m. to midnight daily.
“We are honored to receive such recognition from this well-respected health-care professional organization,” said Graphcom President Matt Livelsberger. “We understand the unique challenges that businesses and organizations in this industry face, which is why all of us at Graphcom approach our work with clients such as Righttime Medical Care as collaboratively as we can. We feel that addressing these challenges together ultimately gives us the ability to leverage the resources we have with our own in-house staff and production capabilities to develop standout marketing materials that make an impact.”
