About Us

Since 1999, Sullivan & Sampson has been helping medical companies tell their stories in clear, compelling language that resonates with important audiences. Whether you're an early stage company looking for a comprehensive public relations and marketing program, or a larger organization seeking assistance with high-level clinical marketing, Sullivan & Sampson can help you rise above the noise and get noticed. 

Based in Orange County, Sullivan & Sampson is an award-winning strategic medical & healthcare communications agency with a long history of implementing successful public relations, marketing, professional and consumer education, clinical publishing, and issue management programs on behalf of healthcare clients. Our sole focus on the medical industry ensures that we understand your business, technology, markets, and audiences.

Because effective, high-level medical communications activities cannot be delegated to junior staff, our agency principals and seasoned communications professionals plan and implement all client programs. We develop strategic partnerships with our clients that evolve with their changing needs and stand the test of time.
