ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It took Medical Practice Solutions just two months to get up and running in 2009, thanks to the WESST Enterprise Center’s ready-to-go infrastructure.
Co-founders Marie Mercado and Tina Cleveland launched the company in November 2009 after acquiring a back-office service program they helped create for a local health care company. The program offers remote administrative management services for medical practices.
They moved into WESST on Jan.1, 2010 and immediately became operational, something Mercado called “plug and play.”
“We moved into WESST with all the infrastructure already in place,” Mercado said. “We booted up the entire office and began serving clients on the first day.”
WESST also provided a business loan to help cover payroll and expenses while establishing cash flow, Mercado said.
