Students draft business plan for health clinicWritten by Admin
A 100-page business plan created by Western Carolina University seniors are helping guide development of a self-sustaining primary care health clinic in the university’s Health and Human Sciences Building.
The team explored the needs of the WCU School of Nursing, such as opportunities for hands-on student training, as well as available services and needs of five regional public health departments and MedWest-Harris hospital.
In addition, the students interviewed staff at regional medical and health practices to gain an understanding of how patients are processed and how patient billing works.
“The students have learned how to do research, conduct a business situational analysis, derive appropriate strategies and write a business plan to attract investors,” said Ed Wright, associate professor of global management and strategy in the College of Business.
