QuickMed Urgent Care Expands With Women Leadership
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – In four years, QuickMed Urgent Care has expanded to nine sites across northeastern Ohio – a feat that Lena Esmail didn’t imagine possible when she began the urgent-care company. “I’ve always been very tenacious and I don’t take ‘No’ for an answer,” Esmail says.
She is the CEO of QuickMed and a nurse practitioner. “But I never imagined that I would have been able to scale a simple model to this extent in such a short amount of time.”
QuickMed boasts an entirely female administrative staff – although not by design.
“This wasn’t because I decided one day I’m going to only hire women in these roles,” Esmail says. “When we evaluate the history of our hiring and our growth and our innovation, it always comes back to my team that helped us grow. My team has historically been, in the administrative realm, women. And I think that says something.”
