My Pediatric Speech Therapy Clinic is Now Open
Hi. I’m Pam Drennen, MS CCC-SLP and I am opening a speech language therapy clinic in Wayne PA. In fact, it opened yesterday.
I have been a speech pathologist for 20 years. I started a private practice about 10 years ago, but I never had a office, so I drove to each appointment. I have dreamt of having my own clinic so that I can help more kids. I am not alone either. I have had numerous conversations with other private practice SLPs over the years who have or had the same dream. The reality of the situation is that few SLPs have the time, money or business experience to start a speech therapy clinic. It costs a lot of money to get started and it’s somewhat complicated. I realized that I needed plan and a team.
I called my brother, Fran Dicari, first. Fran is an entrepreneur. He has been entrepreneurial his entire life. Over the last 20 years, he has helped build two marketing agencies in Cincinnati. His current agency is a digital agency with a staff of 90 people. He knows how to build a business and how to market one. Fran gave me the boost of confidence I needed and more importantly said he offered to help finance the start-up.
Fran suggested that we bring our sister, Deb Sampson, into the business too. Quite simply, Deb gets things done. She has been in the child therapy business as an OT assistant for years. Before Deb got into OT, she helped run the day-to-day operations of two daycare centers.
So I will concentrate on the Clinical Services at the therapy clinic. My sister will concentrate on managing the business and my brother will lead all work regarding marketing, legal and finance.
We are the perfect team.
