The New Year is when blogs turn to sum up the year, but I decided to make this a two-part post, with a few points looking back at New Frontier’s 2021 and a few predictions for 2022!
New Frontier had a great 2021.
It was off to a slow start, but word got out that we “walk the walk.” We didn’t just talk about quality imaging; we did everything we could to deliver it, achieving our goal of zero inconclusive studies for patients.
It was up to great partners like the practices in the Midwest Direct Primary Care Alliance to spread the word. We were proud to create a partner program for MDPCA members, resulting in lower costs for patient procedures.
New Frontier beefed up our sonography leadership by adding Mindy Ammer as our Lead Sonographer over Vascular, General, and OB/GYN imaging. She joins Leah Astleford, our Lead Sonographer over Cardiac imaging, in managing the sonography team and defining imaging processes.
With her addition, New Frontier also added Women’s Health to our services, allowing us to bring OB/GYN services to doctor’s offices and clinics throughout our service area.
New Frontier was also happy to partner with the Saint Luke’s Hospital System and Kindred Northland Hospital, providing New Frontier sonographers to meet staffing and procedure needs.
We closed 2021 by adding four new sonographers to the team – Sa Phan, Sara Nelson, Susan Black, and Alyssa Kurth all joined in the last two months, ensuring 2022 will be a very exciting time!
Looking forward, I have a few predictions for what will happen in 2022:
We hope everyone had a great holiday season, and we’re looking forward to hearing from you in 2022!
