Phelps Hospital Hires Allyson Miller as Director of Marketing/Communications

Allyson Miller of Verona, New Jersey, has joined Phelps Hospital as Director of Marketing/Communications, bringing more than 20 years of healthcare marketing and business development experience to Phelps. In her new position, Miller will develop and oversee all marketing, advertising, public relations and revenue generation strategies and programs for the hospital and for Phelps Medical Associates.
