Neuger Communications Group announced today it has won an award for their development of a website for Portico Healthnet. The full-service strategic communications firm won a Gold Award in the 2019 AVA Digital Awards under the category nonprofit web-based production for the work.

Since Portico Healthnet’s founding in 1995, the company has helped 50,000 low-income, uninsured children, families and adults overcome barriers to quality health care coverage and services. Portico leads the way in culturally competent outreach, enrollment, health literacy and health system navigation services. Neuger Communications Group was honored to work with Portico to help them more effectively tell their story in a digital space.

The Neuger team partnered with Portico to launch a new mobile-friendly website that is easy for clients from all backgrounds to use. The new website tells Portico’s story and creates an emotional response to an important issue: a lack of accessible, affordable health care and coverage for uninsured individuals and families.

With this project, the Neuger team developed user personas and a customized website plan with Portico to address how different individuals may flow through the site depending on their needs. It was critical that the new website meets the needs of a variety of audiences, including current and prospective donors, clients and those providing health care referrals.

“I am proud to see the success of our partnership with Portico being acknowledged and celebrated,” says Neuger Communications Group President and CEO David Neuger. “Portico does extraordinary work for the community, and it was an honor to work with them to enhance their digital presence so that they can better communicate their message.”
