San Francisco's Healthcare Public Relations Firm

Healthcare public relations (PR) is one of the fastest growing sectors in the public relations industry.

It’s also one of the more challenging public relations practices.

It requires healthcare PR professionals to understand the science and take complex information to make it understandable to the public, while maintaining a high level of legitimacy.

Healthcare public relations also requires an understanding of governmental practices, FDA approval processes and regulations such as HIPPA.

“I highly recommend LCI. They helped us with a proactive and creative public relations, digital, SEO & SEM campaign that in just a few short months tripled BHR’s membership, increased minority participation from 8% to 21% & generated widespread media interest in such top tier outlets as The Today Show and & CBS Evening News. They understand healthcare & they understand communications. That is a winning combination.”

Healthcare Public Relations at Work

The Challenge


The Sutter Health CPMC Van Ness Campus hospital in San Francisco, California opened in early 2019. The site promised to be the most seismically safe hospital in the West while also providing sorely needed emergency room, obstetrics and surgical services to the downtown area. Landis positioned this new location as the linchpin in the revitalization of San Francisco’s Van Ness Avenue.

The Strategy


Landis created mass coverage during National Nurses Week by newsjacking the royal birth. Landis turned to labor and delivery nurse and crochet queen June Shiraki for her support to localize the global story. June crocheted a set of “royal crowns” for newborns who would share the same birthday as the royal baby.

On May 6, royal watchers around the world learned that Duchess Meghan had delivered her baby and Landis moved swiftly to invite local media to witness the “crowning” of the Bay Area’s own newborn arrivals.

The Results


  • National coverage including Access Hollywood, Associated Press, Inside Edition,, USA Today, San Francisco Business Times, San Francisco Examiner, and many more
  • The royal birth newsjacking resulted in extensive media coverage:
    • More than 100 news networks across the country picked up Inside Edition or KPIX (CBS) segments on the story
    • The total number of print, online and broadcast impressions exceeded 30 million
    • More than 5,780 engagements across Facebook and Twitter
    • Inside Edition’s article received 2,600+ Twitter engagements, 1,400+ Facebook reactions, 94 comments and 347 shares
    • ABC News Twitter video was viewed more than 100,000 times
    • The UK Consulate in San Francisco praised CPMC on Twitter for its clever idea to honor the royal baby
