John Schmidt
After spending more than 14 years in senior roles with large public relations firms, I started Schmidt Public Affairs in 2004 with the vision of an intimate environment that would allow more personalized attention from the top down to a select group of healthcare clients, with more focus on deliverables and less on lip service and nickel-and-diming.


We remain dedicated to this founding premise – that clients are best served by frequent, direct, and thoughtful interaction with smart, accessible professionals who can manage tactics that work and help clients achieve their business objectives.


Thanks to a close team of talented public affairs professionals, we have established a hands-on, no-nonsense, results-oriented firm. Combined, Schmidt Public Affairs’ professionals have more than 75 years of health care experience and a deep understanding of the issues facing health care providers today.


Our clients  say we’re a different kind of firm with a unique and effective style. We work hard, and are always available when needed – any time, day or night. We are a true team – working closely together, and drawing upon our varying and harmonizing skill sets to the benefit of our clients. We’re passionate about our clients’ issues, mindful of their needs and dedicated to their success.


We look forward to the possibility of working with your healthcare organization.
