ProviDRs Care is pleased to announce the addition of Kerry Johnston as marketing and client service specialist. Johnston was hired in July 2018, providing communications consultation, including planning, writing and graphic design. In addition, she will support new business efforts and client services. Kerry will be the liaison between our employer groups, payers, brokers and ProviDRs Care. She will also help coordinate request for proposals (RFPs), new group set-ups, renewals, group and payer contracting and customer service questions.
“Kerry’s vast experience in marketing communications has already proven to be a valuable asset to our organization,” says Karen Cox, chief executive officer. “The combination of her expertise and our current growth means her hire came at the perfect time as ProviDRs Care is adding new services and expanding into new models of care.”
A prior communications specialist for Harrington Health, Johnston has communicated benefits and enrollment information to thousands of plan participants nationwide. Her efforts have supported both internet and paper enrollments as well as wellness communications for clients’ employees, among others, in forms ranging from personalized enrollment worksheets to posters, postcards and paycheck stuffers. She also managed three corporate rebrandings and created materials to educate plan members, including breaking down industry terminology to be more understandable by the layperson.
Johnston earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism with emphasis in advertising and public relations from Wichita State University in 1991. Her work has been recognized by the International Association of Business Communicators Topeka chapter and the Wichita chapter of both the Public Relations Society of America Wichita chapter and American Advertising Federation.
