When Buffalo Business First scanned the business community to determine its 2022 Business of the Year, they found no entity more deserving than Focus Urgent Care, a four-location operation founded by Greg Daniel, MD, MBA under the umbrella of his own Nidus Development company. It’s an especially striking achievement in that Daniel only opened Focus this past summer, occupying spaces previously run by WNY Immediate Care. Recognizing that certain needs were going unmet in Buffalo and the surrounding communities of Amherst, Depew, and Williamsville, Daniel implemented occupational health and drug testing services. They’ve succeeded beyond expectations, to the point that Daniel was quoted in the Buffalo Business First profile as saying that his main focus for the business right now is to ensure stability in the midst of higher-than-expected patient engagement. The next step planned is to bring mental health services into the picture The selection of Focus as Company of the Year is a validation of the value of urgent care as a business entity, but also reflects the benefits of proactivity and establishing relationships with area businesses and media. Consider what unmet needs—and prospective partnerships—could exist in your communities.
