About Todd Sloane
Todd Sloane is a veteran healthcare journalist and corporate communications professional. Prior to founding Quo Vadimus Communications in 2012, Sloane spent five years leading communications for Press Ganey Associates, where he produced all publications for the healthcare performance improvement consulting company serving more than half of all U.S. hospitals. As part of that job, he produced and executed the company’s first-ever strategic communications plan. The result was a revamped client-facing print magazine, several new electronic newsletters, survey reports, a company blog, and new Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages. In 2012, Sloane won the national MarCom Gold Award for best client-facing magazine. Sloane also wrote numerous white papers and articles for placement in clinical and trade journals, as well as speeches for top executives. He led presentation skills training sessions and helped to produce videos for the public website.
Sloane spent 14 years at Modern Healthcare magazine, where he led print and online editorial sections for the national business weekly. He initiated a regular survey of healthcare opinion leaders in partnership with the Commonwealth Fund, and planned and executed a special issue on the 2008 elections that included op-eds written by every presidential candidate. His editorials on health reform informed the national debate on this issue and won the most prestigious prize in the field – the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Award.
Sloane was for five years managing editor of City & State magazine, a national biweekly magazine read by more than 100,000 state and local government officials across the U.S. He also worked for daily and weekly newspapers.
He is the author of Gonzalez of Texas: A Congressman of the People (Burke, 1996), a biography of the late Hispanic leader and chairman of the U.S. House Banking Committee. He also spent a number of years on the journalism faculty of Columbia College in Chicago.
