When we started Cascadia in 2015, we knew that one of the most important things we could do to ensure our success would be to partner with people that shared our values and commitment to the same core principles that we do. This is not an easy task, as there are many potential partners out there that are great at what they do. We sought to partner with people that not only do great work, but those companies that were interested in building long-lasting real and personal relationships. These relationships are rare, and if you are lucky, you might come across only a few partnerships that demonstrate this trait in your career.
This past year has been a whirlwind of activity full of anxiety, hope, and a sincere appreciation for these remarkable partnerships. As big as this industry appears from the outside, the Healthcare Industry is a small and intimate group of caretakers, service providers, and talented leaders. I believe there is a shared bond among all those that choose to serve in this delicate and often challenging industry. The common thread that weaves us together is that of selfless service. It can be seen directly with our residents and patients, our staff, or in other ways within the communities that we serve. We are all dedicated to this industry and the longevity of each of the crafts that we practice.
Not every company is perfect. Execution can be tricky and there are many variables that can hinder our ability to do more. Acknowledging not every company is perfect, including our own, I wanted to specifically thank a few partnerships out of the many that have helped us in extraordinary ways this past year.
Each of these partners have shown the unique strength to personalize their services for Cascadia in a real and meaningful way specific to our needs in 2016.
We are immensely grateful for your leadership, support, and partnership as we continue to grow our company. Thank you from everyone at Cascadia!
