URGENT CARE OF CT EXECUTIVES SPEAK AT NATIONAL CONFERENCE

Three nationally-recognized executives from Urgent Care of Connecticut were invited to speak at the Urgent Care Association of America’s (UCAOA) 2013 Spring Annual Convention held April 8-11 in Orlando, FL. The UCAOA’s spring conference is an annual meeting consisting of approximately 600-800 attendees covering a myriad of clinical and business-focused topics with representation from over 80 exhibitors. Sharing their expertise and knowledge to urgent care providers, business owners, administrators and clinical staff members from across the country were Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Robert Rohatsch, and Chief Performance Officer, Beth Agen, MBA.
Dr. Kenkare was asked to speak on two separate topics including “Pre-operative Evaluations in the Urgent Care Center.” As a local expert in this area, she presented the latest data and national recommendations regarding preparation of the “healthy” vs. “unhealthy” patient for minor, intermediate and high-risk non-cardiac surgeries.
Her second topic was “Medical Evaluation of the Pregnant Patient in the Urgent Care Setting”.  She discussed the physiologic changes which occur in pregnancy, the management of common medical illnesses which may occur in the pregnant patient, and the safety of medications used to treat these illnesses in pregnancy.
Dr. Rohatsch presented “Creating a High Performance Corporate Culture.” As CEO and founding partner of Urgent Care of Connecticut, Dr. Rohatsch shared his vision for fostering a positive corporate culture through a highly-focused business strategy, mission and corporate philosophy. He discussed how to set the highest standards for business growth, quality, legislative adherence and financial performance, and how to transcend these standards into a flourishing corporate culture with positive patient relationships and experiences.
Beth Agen, MBA presented her area of expertise “Assessing Employee Performance.” Ms. Agen discussed how job descriptions affect employee performance; creating an informal feedback loop in order to provide employees with continuous performance feedback; ways to recognize the importance of, and understanding how to balance, positive and negative observations; knowing how to set formal employee performance goals that are time-bound and measurable; and implementing interventions that break negative cycles of behavior.

Patient
Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Patient
Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
