From Startup to Success – Delta Urgent Care
Listen to testimonial from the owners of Delta Urgent Care in Houma, LA & Bayou Vista, LA. Another successful practice under the tutelage of Urgent Care Consultants. They just cut the ribbon on a brand new urgent care!
You can’t do this nearly as efficiently, quickly, smoothly without having some direction. There are so many aspects of opening this type of facility.
Certainly a lot involved in opening up an urgent care – a lot more than we had even imagined.
There’s a whole lot that’s involved in getting a business of any kind started – particularly a medical business, which is complicated. But to try to do that alone would require tons of research, a lot of hours, and money as well. And I would definitely recommend using a consultant who’s done it many times before. Bonnie’s great! She takes a lot of interest in not only the business aspect, but has been a friend and is just interested in us as people. So, it’s been really nice working with her.
We’ll call her or she’ll get in touch with us and see how things are going; make sure there isn’t anything we have questions about or any needs – she’s always been there.
We began talking with Bonnie maybe even over two years ago when we first started thinking about opening our first clinic. And here we are, like I said, over two years later and we hit the ground running. We were seeing numbers that were above what we had expected.
This morning we had our ribbon cutting for our second location, and Bonnie flew down to be with us from Illinois – all the way down to Louisiana to be at our ribbon cutting. So that kind of tells you the kind of person she is. It makes you feel good. It lets us know that she’s interested in us and she’s interested in us succeeding for the long term.
It’s a great feeling having a second location now. Certainly it’s just the response from local people. We feel like it’s going to be a great asset to the community around us here.
I would definitely recommend starting with a consultant group – someone who’s been there before, done that, they already made the mistakes and they can definitely guide you in the right direction.
If you’ve never done it, it would take much longer and you would muddle your way through. You’d probably spend a lot more money making those mistakes without having someone to tell you, “Ok, you need to do XYZ.”
I think Bonnie and Urgent Care Consultants – they are the ones to compare everyone else to. I would certainly highly recommend them.
