Immanuel Health Center was established to serve the underinsured in McLean County, Illinois. After two years of planning and preparation, the facility had been approved for occupancy and was ready to serve patients—as soon as the financial and personnel pieces were in place.
With this roadblock preventing the health center from serving those who needed its services, Michael assured the founders that he could assist them in opening their doors within a year. Michael served as the interim executive director, advising on all operations, staffing, finances, and administration.
He delivered on his promise and Immanuel Health Center was open within a year. Michael then walked the company through transitioning to a long-term solution, helping them hire staff to replace him in the day-to-day operations of the center.
