The agency also won bronze awards for a CyberKnife newspaper ad and an online branding ad, as well as merit award for a mammography online ad.
"Of course, it's rewarding when your work earns top honors when measured against some of the industry's best players; however, the most important judges of our work are the prospective patients and referral sources we reach with our clients' messages," said Daniel Weinbach, The Weinbach Group's president. "That's why this year's win is so satisfying. We scored on both fronts by creating award-winning ads that also achieved our clients' marketing goals. That's real success!".
