HOUSTON – November 3, 2015 – Emerus Health is the proud recipient of nine honors in the 2015 MarCom Awards, an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals.

The creative talents that comprise the Emerus marketing and communications team, led by Vice President Jason Lisovicz, received two Platinum awards, five Gold awards and two Honorable Mentions. The team shares the story of how Emerus’ patient-centered emergency and inpatient care and diagnostic services has made it a national leader in innovative health care.

Emerus earned Platinum awards in the categories of Special Event and Communication Program; Gold awards in the categories of Special Event, Single (video) Spot, Internal Communication, Special Event and Video Script; and Honorable Mention awards in the categories of Image and Corporate Image.

Contest entries were received from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies and freelancers. The competition has grown to perhaps the largest of its kind in the world, with more than 6,000 entries submitted each year.

The MarCom Awards continue a year of excellence for the Emerus marketing and communications team, which already had received 21 industry awards for its work in 2014-2015 – including 17 total awards and the prestigious Marketer of the Year in Health Care award from the American Marketing Association-Houston (AMA). AMA-Houston is the area’s premier professional marketing organization and is among the largest AMA chapters in North America.

“It is rewarding to see our hard work recognized by such prestigious and respected organizations. I am extraordinarily proud of our team,” Lisovicz said. “Our goal is to deliver health care differently, and it wouldn’t be possible without the creative minds and strategic thinking that set us apart.”

Dr. Toby Hamilton, CEO of Emerus, said: “I congratulate the marketing and communications team for its work and these superb results. Their passion for excellence helps improve the organization as a whole, and we look forward to additional milestones to come.”
