Accepting the award …

We recently posted about our winning the Hospital Planning and Marketing Society of New Jersey’s Percy Award for Best Small Hospital Public Relations/Media Placement. Shown here, Sandy Josephson, director of marketing and public relations for Matheny, left, accepts the award at HPMSNJ’s annual meeting from Patricia Haines, HPMSNJ president and senior planning analyst at AtlantiCare, and outgoing president Norman Tessell, director of business development, imaging systems, at Atlantis Worldwide.

Matheny has won this award for three consecutive years. This year’s award was for Matheny’s partnership with WCBS-TV and WCBS Newsradio 880 to support the annual fundraiser and community event, Miles for Matheny.
