Get your networking hat on, and meet me at Mercy Clinic East Thursday, May 26 from 5-7pm. They are sponsoring the Forward Janesville Business after 5.

As the Rock County community seeks to establish the new normal, one fact stands tall. Reinvestment by local businesses in the community. Events like the one at Mercy East give you the unique opportunity to get a sneak peek at the 73,000 square foot expansion, and network with professionals in the region.

Everyone can agree demand for quality healthcare will continue to increase over the years ahead. We are all investing more in our careers, often working longer hours or expanding our area of knowledge in our business.

It seems logical that demand for rehabilitation and therapy would increase as the population ages. I am interested to learn more about the new Physical and Occupational Therapy departments at Mercy East. My understanding is the updates will include a SwimEx Therapy pool and more.

The other attraction is the focus on green building. There is an obvious commitment to explore ways to build smart. We can all benefit from observing what improvements can be made to our business using these strategies.

Establishing a professional network includes medical, service, sales and technical people. Time I invest in building my network is time well spent. I appreciate when businesses take time to host the Business After 5 event, and look forward to supporting it.
