(LOS ANGELES – December 1, 2014) – Kevin/Ross Public Relations has been honored with five awards in the international MarCom Awards competition, just announced. The agency was cited for excellence in multiple categories while competing against more than 6,500 entries from the United States and several foreign countries.

Kevin/Ross earned a “Platinum” award, the highest honor MarCom bestows, for an infographic it created on behalf of Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC). The infographic highlights the efficacy of proton therapy in successfully treating cancer and allowing people to return to a comfortable quality of life. The James M. Slater, M.D., Proton Treatment and Research Center at LLUMC has treated more proton patients – more than 17,500 − than any other facility in the world.

Kevin/Ross earned “Gold” awards for writing excellence on behalf of clients Huntington Memorial Hospital and SCAN Health Plan for commentaries that appeared in the Los Angeles Business Journal and the healthcare trade publication Payers and Providers, respectively. The Huntington Hospital commentary was a call for local hospitals to work more cooperatively to serve the greater community while the SCAN article discussed the many contributions nonprofit hospitals, health plans and others continue to bring to the nation’s healthcare system.

Agency President Ross Goldberg also received a Gold award for a commentary he wrote for Executive Insight while agency Vice President Carol Stevenson was honored for a feature article she wrote on SCAN’s highly acclaimed “Trading Ages” senior-sensitivity training program.

The MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communications professionals, both corporate and agency. Kevin/Ross was a triple winner in both 2012 and 2013.
