"Build it and they will come, only works in the movies." ~ Seth Godin

The healthcare industry has seen its share of organizations that have potentially game-changing technology, and organizations with talented team members who have innovative ideas – yet these organizations never reach their full potential. Something is missing.


In today’s environment, it is not enough to have a great offering and great people. Trust in the offering, and more importantly, trust in people, is what moves the needle to action. While there are a few paths to get to trust, some shorter than others, this isn’t just another step in the client’s journey that can be skipped. Getting to trust is the journey.


An experienced strategic partner knows the paths to building trust, and the steps that need to be taken. They understand the industry and how to market effectively within it. They have a track record of success.


For select companies, SHC is this kind of strategic partner. We can enhance your credibility, sharpen your strategy, help you demonstrate your value proposition, and break through the noise to build the kind of trust that leads to accelerated growth.

"I was fortunate to meet Frank Fortner and Jack Walker and the Strategic Healthcare Connections team at a time when we were working on a new growth strategy. These two gentlemen were a pleasure to work with, genuine and passionate about our success. Through SHC's connections, they provided sales referrals, consulting experts, new hire candidates, industry experts to sit on our advisory council and last but not least, marketing analysis and presentation training by none other than Judy Volker, a tremendous marketing talent." ~ Mark Lancaster, Executive Vice President at Sentrics

From strategic to execution, from advisory to turn-key implementation, our marketing experts will help you build the trust in your brand that leads to action.

Transaction Services

There are many challenges faced by those who dare to dream big enough to impact lasting change on the healthcare industry. From the moment a founder(s) launches a company, they are faced with many important decisions including how much capital the business needs to operate and meet growth goals.  Some will invest their own capital while others will seek investors.

When the company matures there will be new strategic decisions to make around growth and/or exit strategies which may include raising capital, acquiring new  businesses or finding a new owner.

Our team has been there, on both sides, and has experience helping business owners find and implement the right strategy for their unique needs.
