Shriners Children s Twin Cities Greetings to all and with hope you had a fabulous holiday season Here we are at the start of 2023 and I can t be more excited for the Twin Cities Ambulatory Care Clinic We had a fairly successful year in 2022 establishing a number of things to help position our site in the market and increase service offerings This includes installing sensory space equipment in Rehab Therapy being approved for direct community referrals for rehab developing cranial facial offerings for plagiocephaly and torticollis along with gaining approval of our 2023 strategic plan budget and specific initiatives to develop further affiliated partnerships Foundationally while all of these are necessary and exciting we have a few more things to do in 2023 if we want to be relevant and serve our market But for now the bigger challenge is to grow our numbers of patient visits in each of our service lines clinic therapy POPS imaging and surgeries Having these resources is great but without the patients these along with staff sit idle This is going take each of us spreading the word and promoting the name more than we have likely ever done and in ways that are not necessarily familiar to Shriners Children s As always we welcome and are grateful for the relationship we have with the Shriners and WGA Both groups truly exemplify the mission of Shriners Children s and we couldn t be prouder of how you continue to represent what we do for children in each of your communities 2023 is a great turning point for us to fully develop this model grow the brand and serve more kids than ever before Happy New Years David Voller MBA FACHE Clinic Administrator Shriners Children s Twin Cities January 2023 Zor Zephyr Magazine Page 11
