Norwalk, CT – June 17, 2010 — The Health Care M&A Information Service won a top award among hundreds of entries in the “Best Reference” category by the Specialized Information Publishers Foundation (SIPF). The 2010 awards were presented at the 34th Annual International Newsletter & Specialized Information Publishers Conference held in June in Washington, DC. The Health Care M&A Information Service provides market intelligence on health care mergers and acquisitions through an online database, and print and electronic newsletters and reports.
“The Health Care M&A Information Service, now in its 14th year of publication, is a leading financial publication in a specialized and sophisticated market.  Its mission is to delve inside the health care M&A market and identify and put into context the ‘who, what, where, when and how much’ of mergers and acquisitions in the highly diffuse health care industry,” according to SIPF.
The Health Care M&A Information Service has won numerous editorial awards. In 2009, the publication won first place in the Best Directory or Database awards category.  In 2007 and 2008, the publication won first place in the Best Reference Publication awards category. 
“To receive a top award in such a highly competitive area of publishing is very exciting.  It is a testament to the hard work of the editors and the technology team who have worked together to deliver a top quality product” says Eleanor B. Meredith, Publisher.
The SIPF recognition is only the most recent in a string of impressive awards that the company has received this year.   Last month, The American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE) recognized The SeniorCare Investor, the company’s flagship publication and the proven leader for breaking news in the senior care market, with its 2010 Gold Award for “Best Publication: Newsletter” and also a second newsletter, Senior Living Business, was awarded the 2010 Silver Award for “Best Single Issue of a Newsletter.”
