Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock, Inc., a national health care communications and public affairs firm, recently named Tim Stewart as its new senior adviser of the company’s Chicago, Illinois-based team.
Stewart previously worked at the Illinois State Medical Society as the director of outreach.
“Tim’s experience with physicians and politics is right in our sweet spot, and we’re delighted to have him on our team,” David Jarrard, president and CEO of Jarrard, said. “As health care providers across the country more closely align with physicians, leaders are looking for smart, strategic counsel on how to work in tandem with doctors to further strengthen healthcare.”
The firm is in the middle of health care trade media and thought leadership, as the team in Chicago has an integral role in founding the company’s footprint among health care providers in the Midwest area. The current delivery system is being reshaped due to consolidation and collaboration with various partners.
“I’m excited to help physicians and health care providers more deeply engage as they navigate this time of immense transformation,” Stewart said. “Joining such an accomplished team and utilizing my experience with physicians is a great opportunity to help make an impact on the industry.”
