WASHINGTON, NEW YORK, and LONDON: Three PR firms have expanded their operations with senior-level hires in healthcare.

At Edelman, Lee Lynch will head a Washington-based group being created within the agency's bioscience communications practice.

The health ally development group will focus on policy issues, helping corporate clients build coalitions within the non-profit sector, according to Lynch, who joined June 2. She was previously deputy director of Hill & Knowlton's Washington Health Policy practice.

Lynch said that interest in the ally development group has surpassed expectations, with a new client added each day.

Rowland Communications has also made a key hire in healthcare to meet its own growing client demand.

Kris Burbank assumed the New York-based director position last month. She joins from Procter & Gamble.

And in London, Max Jackson has been named president of the international division of Publicis' Healthcare Communications Group. He will oversee all Publicis, Medicus, and Saatchi & Saatchi healthcare offices outside North America. He previously was responsible for European operations.

Jackson replaces Glenn DeSimone, who retired.
