HPP received the award for its innovative rebranding campaign, "Doing it Right." The branding message about the organization's new name and look was revealed last year to over 2,000 people during its annual Crazy Praise Dance Showcase and Health Fair. The campaign continued with a dynamic website redesign, features in major media, a creative advertising campaign and the launch of the HPP corporate presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The comprehensive, multifaceted campaign and change from Health Partners to Health Partners Plans was designed to support HPP's growth and expansion into new product areas.

"I have no doubt that our bold, vibrant new look and the excitement and publicity it generated played a key role in our record-breaking Medicare launch," said William S. George, president & CEO. "We exceeded the initial enrollment numbers of all other area Medicare plans by far. This award, our growing enrollment and top scores in member, provider and employee satisfaction are proof that our commitment to 'doing it right' is well received. We're thrilled to have this honor!"
