MALVERN, PA (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
HMP Communications Holdings, LLC, a leader in healthcare communications and education, is proud to announce a new joint venture partnership between its subsidiary, HMP Communications, LLC (HMP) and the Kirchner Group, a leading North American traditional merchant bank. Under this initiative, the two organizations will launch the Business of Wound Care program with a special emphasis on diabetes and related wound care, a market that will soon top $300 billion. This unprecedented collaboration will provide information and services for entrepreneurs, companies and investors in the diabetes and wound care industry.
HMP’s strength lies within wound care communications, fueled by its print and online reach from their journals, Ostomy Wound Management, WOUNDS, Podiatry Today and Today’s Wound Clinic, that reach over 60,000 wound care decision-makers everyday. The Kirchner Group’s strength lies within their vast portfolio of clients, partners, and investors. Together, the two organizations will share a uniquely symbiotic relationship in assisting entities with the business of wound care.
“This joint venture with HMP Communications broadens our already strong platform for serving entrepreneurs, companies and investors in the health and life sciences sector," stated Bud Kirchner, the Founder of the Kirchner Group. “I am particularly pleased to partner with HMP because of their formidable communication capabilities and long-standing reputation in the wound care industry. When paired with our own experience in the industry and proprietary business platform, the synergies should create considerable value for business owners, managers and investors interested in wound care and diabetes.”
The Business of Wound Care website (http://www.businessofwoundcare.com) will go live in late April 2013 and will feature program information on two free webinars scheduled for June 19 and August 14. Additionally, the inaugural Business of Wound Care one-day meeting will be held on Friday September 27, 2013, in Las Vegas, NV, and be co-located with the 2013 Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Fall (SAWC Fall) conference.
“This is a really exciting chance to help entrepreneurs, other businesses and investors who are focusing on wound and diabetes care," added Managing Partner Patrick McNees, PhD. “I have known and worked with HMP in various ways for over 20 years and feel very fortunate to now have the chance to collaborate with them on such an exceptional venture.”
“We are very pleased to be able to join forces with the Kirchner Group on this initiative," noted Peter Norris, an Executive Vice President at HMP Communications. "The Business of Wound Care concept is a natural outgrowth to HMP’s core competencies and married with Kirchner’s investor and entrepreneurial expertise, it gives us a powerful platform to help nurture innovative products and companies within the field of wound care.”
