Global healthcare communications company imc Group has rebranded to SCIRIS, a key milestone in its growth strategy.

SCIRIS brings together people inspired to deliver exceptional communications and consultancy services. Employing over 300 people in the UK and North America, it connects best-in-class capabilities to achieve success across therapeutic categories and all phases of brand development, offering bespoke programmes in healthcare communications, creative and brand strategy, medical compliance, and insights.

SCIRIS Chairperson, Viv Adshead, said:

“Our distinctive ethos enables each of our agencies to preserve their individual culture and identity at the same time as contributing to the development of a high-performing group, culminating in a unique balance of independent thinking and impactful collaboration. Our new group brand name has its roots in our shared passion for science and reflects our collective culture. Together, we are united by our ability to achieve intelligent solutions, inspired by science”.

Since being backed by Waterland Private Equity in May 2020, the group has experienced radical expansion, acquiring several best-in-class agencies on both sides of the Atlantic. Its partner agencies, integrated medhealth communication, integrated medhealth communication NA, Porterhouse Medical Group, Pulsar Health, Indigo Medical, Wedgewood Communications and Fusion Medical Animation bolstered its presence, expertise and offering.

As a result, the group’s global headcount has expanded from 85 to 300, and its geographical footprint now includes London, Reading, Nottingham, Milton Keynes, Cambridge, Cheshire, New Jersey and Toronto.
