A destination hospital in the San Francisco Bay Area
For client John Muir Health, an integrated system of doctors, hospitals and other services based in Northern California, the goal wasn’t to be nationally known necessarily. Despite consistently being honored by US News in their “Best Hospitals” rankings, John Muir Health wanted to be known solely as the de facto provider of quality care and clinical excellence in the San Francisco Bay Area.
A new model of healthcare by physicians for physicians
Harden’s impact was immediate and impressive, securing national recognition for Summit Health Management and extending the reach and visibility of their new healthcare model from New Jersey onto the national stage with features placed in the New York Times, Bloomberg BNA, Becker’s, and Modern Healthcare. Summit Health Management and its CEO are now seen as pioneers and thought leaders in the healthcare space, routinely called upon for industry commentary and analysis.
A destination for quality care and “Your Healing Place”

This near year-long media push resulted in changed public perception and the hospital becoming renown as a destination for quality care and “Your Healing Place.”
Improving brand visibility for corporate, specialty, and industrial insurance companies
In just our first few months of working with AGCS, the media wheels were turning and Allianz executives were quoted and/or featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Reuters, Bloomberg and key trade publications associated with their various services lines. Harden further secured influential recognition for Allianz including placement of the insurer’s report findings (infographics) on the front page of USA Today, thought leadership bylines in key industry outlets, as well as routinely submitting/securing influential awards for the client including Advisen’s ‘Cyber Newcomer of the Year.’ Today, Allianz is on a first name basis with a majority of the influential business and trade media and routinely called upon for expert commentary and insight.
Transforming a 100 year-old insurance bastion to a best-in-breed industry benchmark in just five years
Harden worked directly with CSAA’s executive team to identify the key elements of its transformation and beneficiaries.
