NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Everwell TV and Health Media Network (HMN) announced that they have entered into a strategic alliance to grow their Health and Wellness Digital Networks. While the two companies will remain separate entities, they will consolidate their content, operations, research, and advertising sales & marketing efforts, offering advertisers a single network of formidable quality, breadth, and depth.

Together, HMN and Everwell will reach more than 27,000 physicians nationwide and generate over 100 million annual impressions. The companies are extending their combined reach to 17 vertical disease states, including cardiology, oncology, diabetes, and rheumatology.

"The ability to target healthcare consumers and doctors at the place where personal health and wellness decisions are made has demonstrated to be a powerful tool for advertisers wishing to deliver brand messages with proven, actionable results," said Christopher J. Culver, CEO of HMN. "And our combined offering ensures continued growth and expansion in the digital Health and Wellness sector."

Under the agreement, HMN will be the exclusive point of contact for national ad sales for Everwell's screens and other in-office platforms, including brochures and wallboards. Everwell TV will provide its original, award-winning health and wellness programming and production resources to HMN.
