Preparing a medical practice for growth and success

Since 1978, when Dr. Bill and Susan Morehouse opened His Branches on Arnett Blvd. in Rochester, N.Y., the small primary care medical practice had been evolving. The organization achieved status as 501(s)3, not-for-profit ministry, it opened an additional clinic, and in 2015 hired Janet Thirlby as a strategic planning consultant to help prepare for the next 40 years of service to the community.
