For future growth, Consulate has been working on revamping its business development and managed care capabilities. “We want to best leverage our improved services and ensure that we are included in today’s referral patterns,” says Bryson. Another focus is changing Consulate’s typical sales and marketing strategy to focus on managed care, market-based strategy, and value-based purchasing, focused on outcomes.

Consulate also recently announced a scholarship program that will help certified nurse assistants and licensed practical nurses advance their careers, supporting the ongoing commitment to investing in people and developing and retaining the best of the best.

“Through these achievements, we are forging a new reputation that represents who we are today,” he says. “This is evident by the talent and sought-after leaders that Consulate has been able to hire over the past year.

“We are ready to stop looking in the rear-view mirror and focus on the road ahead,” Bryson says. “We have learned from our past experiences, but we are not done yet. As good leaders we must always question the status quo and ask ourselves if what we did to get here is enough to get us there. I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished, what we plan to accomplish in the months and years ahead, and everyone who has helped us get here.”
