North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA) was recently honored for its exceptional marketing and communications materials by the 33rd Annual Healthcare Advertising Awards, the oldest, largest and most widely respected healthcare advertising awards competition in the U.S. NAPA was selected for recognition in five categories winning a gold award for its 2014 Annual Report/Year in Review; a silver award for the NAPA family of logos; a bronze award for its sales slick series; and two merit awards - one for a poster "Wanted: Ideas and Nominations" related to NAPA Innovation Institute and the organization’s Mission, Vision, Values program and another for a branding ad targeted to hospital leadership that ran in Becker's Hospital Review.

Cerrone, NAPA’s Senior Director Marketing and Corporate Communications. “NAPA’s goal is to develop healthcare communications that convey compelling, meaningful stories about our people, services and organization. It is gratifying to know we have been independently validated for the effectiveness of our work."
