Brunner Expands Healthcare Portfolio with Addition of Adagio Health
Partnership designed to promote inclusive and accessible care

Pittsburgh (August 2, 2019) – Did you know Brunner’s headquarters and Adagio Health’s main office are just a few buildings away from one another in downtown Pittsburgh? Geographical proximity, shared beliefs and complimentary organizational cultures are just a few of the reasons why the agency was recently selected as Adagio’s lead agency partner.

“With Brunner’s deep knowledge of healthcare marketing, we are confident this relationship will enable us to accomplish a great deal for our patients and partners,” said Adagio Health’s Chief of External Affairs, Alicia Schisler. “We also appreciate that our primary team at Brunner is led by a group of really smart women, and we’re looking forward to our continued collaboration across multiple campaigns.”

Augmenting Adagio Heath’s integrated marketing efforts, the companies are collaborating on key initiatives serving patients throughout all life stages. Within the first three months of the partnership, Adagio Health and Brunner have teamed up on programs including Tobacco Free Southwest Pennsylvania, research on the female opioid user and support for Adagio Health’s expansion in West Virginia. The companies will continue to join forces throughout the year with primary emphasis on driving forth Adagio Health’s inclusive care.

“We’re very excited to have been given the opportunity to partner with Adagio Health.” said Brunner’s VP, Brand Engagement, Kristen Taggert.Even in this short time, helping them refine their marketing and ultimately, enabling them to more efficiently and effectively reach the communities that need their services has been very rewarding for us.
