Recently named one of the fastest growing private small businesses in Oregon and a top diversity-owned business, this health education and communications firm serves pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries
Portland, OR (PRWEB) April 3, 2008
Portland-based Academic Network LLC has announced the opening of two new offices in New York City and Washington DC. in order to better serve a growing list of national clients. With new corporate presence in the heart of both New York City at the Chrysler Building and in Washington D. C. at Republic Place Center, Academic Network can better serve pharmaceutical and food and beverage companies, as well as public relations firms with healthcare communications solutions via its call center and web-based services.
Expanding relationships with companies and organizations such as GlaxoSmithKline, Fleishman Hillard, Boston Scientific, ConAgra Foods, and Shaping America's Youth have accelerated the growth of Academic Network. Last fall Inc. magazine editors recognized Academic Network as one of the fastest growing private businesses in the nation and in the Portland Metro Region with three year sales growth of 97.2%. Business growth recently prompted a 300% increase in the company's call center capacity.
"Portland's diverse healthcare workforce has made our accelerated growth possible," CEO, Kathleen McCarron stated. "Our new office locations in New York and Washington D. C. enable us to better respond to our clients' needs."
Because of recent company growth and clients' need for immediate information on the company and its services, Academic Network has also significantly expanded its website (www. academicnetwork. com) for better navigability, more news and information about services and client log-in for access to project updates and reports.
Academic Network provides health care communication solutions via its call center and web-based services for pharmaceutical companies, food and beverage companies, and medical centers. The firm's health education and consulting team supports a live, toll-free call center for consumer queries, assists with clinical trial recruitment, program development, management of governmental and health professional relations, as well as strategic planning. Academic Network also develops non-branded websites for their clients seeking to provide online resource centers on specific health and medical issues.
