Advertising in Western Pennsylvania Healthcare News is the most cost effective way to reach a large and targeted audience who actually listens and is looking for what you’re promoting and selling.

As the region’s only monthly health care business newspaper, Western Pennsylvania Healthcare News offers advertisers a highly targeted, affluent and powerful readership who desire and appreciate the newspaper’s editorial perspective.

We reach:

  • 40,000+ health care professionals monthly
  • 8,000+ through social media
  • 12,000+ monthly website visitors
  • 7,000+ email subscribers

Our monthly production cycle means a long shelf life and encourages thorough readership by today’s busy executives. Our publication is an attractive, informative publication that readers typically pass along to co-workers, meaning your ad receives multiple exposures–a real bonus to advertisers.

Whether you choose to connect with us via print, desktop or mobile, our numbers continue to show that we’re highly engaged with the healthcare industry.


Throughout the year, Western Pennsylvania Healthcare News features fresh, in-depth, and relevant information for our audience of 40,000+ healthcare leaders and professionals.

As a business healthcare publication, we cover and cherish our relationship with the entire health care industry including administrators, nurses, physicians, physical therapists, pharmacists, and more. We cover a broad spectrum from hospitals to medical offices to outpatient services to eye surgery centers to university settings. We focus on rehabilitation, nursing homes, home care, hospice as well as men’s health, women’s heath, and pediatrics. If your business crosses into any part of the health care sector, you should make it your business to be a regular part of Western Pennsylvania Healthcare News.

While each issue will contain themes, they are not exclusive to that particular month. We will consider any topic during the year. Topics we plan to cover on a regular basis include:

  • Addiction/Mental Health/Recovery
  • Clinical Topics and Research Developments
  • Consulting and Outsourcing

As always, we encourage all readers and authors to consider submitting a bylined article on these topics or any others you find relevant. Also, please provide us with feedback on the topics we should be covering in the coming year.

Additionally, our revamped website is updated weekly through a combination of breaking news and feature stories. You can also find archived articles from previous issues which we encourage you to share with your peers. Our Twitter feed can also be found on the site where we post news and events for the healthcare community on a daily basis. If you have news that must be distributed immediately, we’ll post it on our social media accounts—LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Combined, we have 8,000+ key connections.
