Nashville-based ReviveHealth has captured a national award, having been named Small PR Agency of the Year by PRWeek.
The health care-focused public relations company, the headquarters of which operates in Cummins Station, was recognized at PRWeek’s annual industry awards dinner in New York City last week Thursday.
New York-based PRWeek is a trade magazine offering news, analysis, features and jobs for the public relations industry. It has been in print for 24 years.
The Revive award comes on the heels of a strong 2013 and the best start to a new year in the agency’s history, according to CEO Brandon Edwards.
In 2013, ReviveHealth registered $5.3 million in fees, with 13 percent of the company’s revenue coming from the health services sector, 10 percent from health technology and 3 percent from healthy living.
“We are on a strong growth trajectory, with five straight years of growth and a professional roster approaching 30,” Edwards (pictured) said in a release.
ReviveHealth moved from PRWeek’s Boutique category to the Small Agency category as a result of revenue increasing above $5 million per year.

Nashville-based ReviveHealth announced Wednesday the promotion of Jeff Speer to senior vice president and Elizabeth Musson to vice president.
"Jeff and Elizabeth are both incredibly talented strategic communication practitioners and have been integral to our growth and to our management team for the beginning days of the firm," Brandon Edwards, CEO, said in a release.
Speer has been with the health care communication firm since 2010 and will serve in his new role as a strategic team leader for clients. Prior to joining ReviveHealth, he was vice president in Porter Novelli's Life Sciences division following its acquisition of FischerHealth.
As vice president, Musson will provide strategy and execution for internal and external communication programs. Before joining ReviveHealth in 2009, she worked in public relations and with the American Cancer Society and the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care.
Brandon Edwards, CEO of health care public relations firm ReviveHealth, has penned a good read on how many health insurance exchanges might look once they're rolled out this fall. The short answer: Cheaper than expected but you'll get what you pay for. And that will have repercussions for the insured, the insurers and the hospitals between them.
When will consumers discover that their BlueCross isn’t the BlueCross that parents, friends, or work colleagues have? When will they realize they bought a product that is significantly inferior to what others buy, and who will they blame? And how will hospitals deal with a new pool of uneducated health care consumers who may unleash their dissatisfaction with out-of-pocket costs on an unsuspecting hospital or physician’s office? There could be a scary backlash lurking in the wings.
