GCI Health unveils German expansion

Adds 30 healthcare specialists

GCI Health

Integrated healthcare communications agency GCI Health has announced its expansion into Germany.

This follows the internal merger of another WPP agency, Hering Schuppener Healthcare to become part of GCI.

Hering Schuppener Healthcare, which has headquarters in Hamburg and an office in Düsseldorf, will add 30 additional healthcare specialists to GCI Health.

Hering Schuppener is one of the largest healthcare communications agencies in Germany, and has worked with some of the industry’s biggest companies.

This transition will also expand GCI Health’s presence in Europe, adding two offices in Germany alongside the company's UK operations.
