Milan and London, 2 March 2022 – Healthware Group, a global health innovation and technology leader, providing advisory, agency and digital health services, has announced its acquisition of Argon Global Healthcare, one of the largest international networks of independent healthcare agencies.

Our network of independent agencies will act as a powerful springboard for disseminating Healthware transformational advisory and technology assets worldwide, delivering a superior level of service to clients”, stated Massimo Vergnano, CEO and Partner at Argon Global Healthcare.
“We are delighted that Healthware has acquired the Argon Global Healthcare Network. It is fantastic to join forces with such an established leader in the healthcare communications space to help our clients be truly patient-centric while also addressing value and reimbursement pressures. The confluence of AI enabling sci-fi to become sci-fact in new and innovative DTx solutions and the proliferation of new sources and resources means that creating and delivering effective healthcare and technology marketing and communication strategies has never been so important. Healthware Global Network will provide clients in both local and global roles access to the full breadth of communications services tailored with a deep understanding of cultural and business nuances for their regional and local brand needs”, commented Pascal Joncour, Managing Partner at Argon Global Healthcare.
