NEW YORK, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global communications leader Porter Novelli has been named agency of record (AOR) for John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center. The agency will provide a full suite of communications services to the cancer center including strategic planning and branding, as well as traditional and social media relations.

"Porter Novelli showed us a very sophisticated understanding of best practices for raising awareness of the John Theurer Cancer Center as a world-class destination for the management and treatment of cancer patients," said Bryan Soltes, vice president of marketing and business development, John Theurer Cancer Center. "Their expertise in storytelling will be invaluable as they educate patients, care-givers and health-care providers about our multidisciplinary, personalized and unique approach to delivering extraordinary health outcomes."

The John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center is New Jersey's largest and most comprehensive center dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, management, research, screenings, and preventive care as well as survivorship of patients with all types of cancer. The 14 specialized divisions covering the complete spectrum of cancer care have developed a close-knit team of medical, research, nursing, and support staff with specialized expertise that translates into more advanced, focused care for all patients.

"We are especially proud to partner with The John Theurer Cancer Center and share the incredible and absolutely vital work they are doing in oncology research and treatment," said Karen van Bergen, CEO, Porter Novelli. "I am also honored that this highly respected team, every member of which is committed to improving the quality of life for cancer patients and eradicating this scourge in our lifetime, has entrusted its story to Porter Novelli."

This appointment marks the latest in a series of announcements from Porter Novelli's Global Health & Wellness practice. In January of 2013, Paul George was named global director of the practice and head of Porter Novelli's New York Health & Wellness practice, and in early May, Mary Smiddy was appointed UK head of Health & Wellness.
