About us:

EVERYTHING WE DO IS SOUND. Great ideas don’t just invent themselves; they’re created by people with a passion for excellence, an exacting nature, and the drive to push beyond the ordinary. Greatness can only be achieved when each and every idea is rigorously examined, thoroughly questioned, beaten up, pressure-tested for weakness, tweaked, honed, and polished. For some, this can be a bit much—but we wouldn’t have it any other way. If it isn’t done right, it isn’t done. So, if at the end of this process, an idea has somehow managed to stand up to everything we can possibly throw at it, only then can it be considered SOUND.

Recognized as MM&M top 100 Agency, Sound Healthcare Communications is a full-service, independent, healthcare advertising agency. We provide a suite of strategic, creative, and multichannel tactical services to help our clients successfully market their brands.

We offer a competitive comprehensive compensation and benefits package (Medical, Dental, Vision, Life/ADD, STD, LTD, 401k, generous time off, free gym, flex Fridays, free snacks and coffee).
