Aging populations require specialized but caring medical attention. Dr. Chiamaka Enemuoh founded Lifestone Health Care Assisted Living in 2014 to provide clients with reliable, respectful and rock-solid health care in a home-like setting.
As a Certified Nurse Practitioner with over 15 years of experience in healthcare and an additional degree in Business Administration, Dr. Enemuoh provides exceptional hands-on care while running a successful business – and after just one year in operation, she needed a larger facility and staff to meet growing demand.
How can a busy medical professional find the support she needed to make her ambitious vision a reality?
Dr. Enemuoh began working with the Women’s Business Alliance in Duluth, forging connections and building a strong network of support that is essential to entrepreneurship. Those relationships led to accessing Entrepreneur Fund financing, which she used to purchase and renovate a new location for Lifestone Health Care Assisted Living. A Small Business Alliance (SBA) Microloan allowed Dr. Enemuoh to:
- Expand into a new, 10-bed facility, increasing the number of patients who could receive care significantly
- Grow her qualified team of caregivers and double annual gross revenue
- Connect with like-minded women business owners
Thanks to Dr. Enemuoh’s dedication to excellence and hands-on leadership, Lifestone Health Care Assisted Living has become one of the Duluth area’s premier assisted living facilities. A highly qualified team is ready to tackle complex health needs to improve the quality of life for all in their care.
