A few years ago, when I started my own healthcare company, I thought, “How can I do this?”
I had to think about it.
So, I built a small office space, I had a desk, and a few colleagues helped me set up the shop.
I got a little bit lucky that we had a lot of spare time, and we did a lot to find solutions for the problems I was facing.
One of those solutions was the low-price healthcare provider Fresenius.
The company was founded by a retired teacher, but it was founded on the back of a real-world success story.
Fresenios founder, Alexis Venezia, is a teacher, teacher-turned-CEO.
She founded Fresenias business in 2006 to provide quality healthcare to students in disadvantaged communities.
After a successful pilot program, the company grew to become one of the largest providers of affordable healthcare in the US, with more than 25,000 patients.
In 2014, Fresenia partnered with the state of Texas to open a new health clinic at a low-income school in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Since then, the hospital and clinic have grown to over 30 locations in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Austin.
Fresens clinic in the state capital, Austin, was recently renamed the Texas Clinic for Students.
For students who are low- or middle-income, the clinic offers free, high-quality healthcare services for two hours per week.
It has over 600 students enrolled, including many students in grades K-12.
One student said that she was very happy to have access to healthcare.
She said that after graduation, she wants to be a nurse and is looking for a job in nursing.
“I want to be an RN or DO, so that’s why I wanted to come here.
I have a lot in common with the students that come here, and that’s really exciting for me.”
In her role as Fresenians chief executive, Venezias vision for the clinic is to become a catalyst for more affordable healthcare.
“The clinic is our flagship project,” she said.
“It is really a catalyst.
It’s the first one where we have a facility, we have trained people, and it’s really important that it’s sustainable.”
One of Fresenies mission is to create opportunities for students who have been marginalized and underrepresented in the healthcare industry to become entrepreneurs and take advantage of this opportunity.
“We want to change the perception that healthcare is a privilege that’s only given to the rich and powerful, and for students like us, that is not true,” she explained.
Fresening students has helped the company create the business model that has become one that enables students to take advantage the opportunity that is available to them.
One key aspect of the Fresenian healthcare model is the fact that students who can afford it can access quality healthcare and participate in the workforce that they are most passionate about.
“When you have access, you can work your butt off, and you can do your homework and you learn,” said one student, a junior in high school.
“You can also get a job, and the students can learn from each other, they can collaborate and they can really take advantage.”
Fresenio has partnered with universities, including University of Texas at Austin, to offer affordable healthcare to high-achieving students.
“In my company, we believe that we are part of the solution.
We believe that it is the way to change how people think about healthcare,” Venezios said.
Fresenerias clinic has been so successful that the company is now expanding into other areas of healthcare, like nursing.
This year, the healthcare facility opened a new office in San Antonio, and Fresenones new healthcare center in Austin is being called the Texas Nursing Care Clinic.
Students in the Austin office will also have access a new online portal called CareNurses, which provides an online resource for healthcare students.
As part of this project, Fresenos goal is to have an office in every city that has a shortage of healthcare workers.
“If you’re a low income student, you really need a healthcare provider,” said Fresenis vice president, Lisa DeJesus.
“They will connect you to an actual provider in your community, and if that provider is low income, you’ll get a discount.”
While the company has not yet decided what the name of the clinic will be, it is already looking to make its mark in the local community.
Freseno has partnered up with local organizations to provide healthcare to homeless individuals.
The clinic also recently launched a community outreach program that includes offering free healthcare to people in need.
In addition to Fresenious clinic, the organization is currently working on another healthcare provider, the Fresenos health clinic in Austin.
The Texas Hospital Association (THA) and Texas A&M University are currently working with Freseno to create a new healthcare program in
