Advocate Health Care Names Schafer Condon Carter as Agency of Record

By Erik Oster 

Advocate Health Care has named independent Chicago agency Schafer Condon Carter (SCC) as its agency of record after a review.

“A faith based, not-for-profit health system,” Advocate Health Care is one of the Midwest region’s largest healthcare providers. The organization spent approximately $6 million on measured media in 2015, according to Kantar Media.

“We are very excited to have such a prestigious brand choose SCC as their partner during this important period for healthcare in the US,” SCC managing partner Jim Stadler said in a statement. “We look forward to digging in on the business strategy and planning front and ultimately creating powerful messaging to leverage Advocate’s assets in the marketplace.”


We’re very excited to be partnering with an agency like SCC,” Advocate Health Care senior vice president, CMO Kelly Jo Golson added. “They’re a great fit for our brand and our team.”

SCC makes a significant chunk of its revenue from health-related clients. The shop currently handles wellness assignments for Johnson & Johnson and P&G’s New Chapter brand of vitamins and supplements, and it has previously worked with Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Alexian Brothers Medical Center and HCA.

The agency has also handled advertising for the Chicago Cubs since 2012 in what is almost certainly its most visible work.
