About Vanguard Communications

More patients. Happier practices.

Grow 15-30% in one year. Guaranteed.

Who we are

For 25 years Vanguard Communications has partnered with medical practices and specialty hospitals to bring in and retain new patients. We provide two ways to grow: research-driven healthcare marketing and practice improvement services, melding our knowledge of patient motivation, the persuasive power of creative communications, and a culture of continuous improvement.

Vanguard: a forefront of an action or movement.”

– Merriam-Webster


Vanguard is more than just our name; it is our way of life.

What we do

In 1994, CEO Ron Harman King founded Vanguard Communications as a traditional advertising, branding and public relations firm that soon evolved into focusing on medical marketing. We entered this new field and quickly found what works: giving patients who increasingly relied on the internet the honest, reliable information they needed to make healthcare – and provider – decisions.

That MedMarketLink program has been our bedrock service for our expanding group of medical practice clients, all experiencing our guaranteed practice growth.

Over time, we realized that many of our clients needed more than marketing, because dysfunctional practice management was unable to accommodate the new patients we brought to them. So we expanded our services to include process improvement with our MedAmorphosis program.

Vanguard’s competitive advantages

There is not another healthcare marketing firm on the market like us. The top five qualifications that sets us apart from the rest are:
  • Healthcare expertise.
  • Multi-disciplinary.
  • Extraordinarily responsive and attentive.
  • We put our money where our mouth is.
  • Hyper detailed wordsmiths.

Our team

We are more than computer geeks, SEO nerds and social media addicts. We have evolved into a uniquely skilled team of healthcare marketing and process improvement professionals, steeped in the currency of the current digital world. 

At Vanguard, we make time for continued staff education and internal process analysis so we are always at the leading edge of all aspects of healthcare trends, medical marketing, social media, public relations, reputation management and much more. The result: each client gets a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of six to eight pros in healthcare marketing and practice improvement.
