Cheltenham’s Dr. Jonathan Gusdorff has traded urgent care for the fledgling medical marijuana segment of the health care industry, writes John George for Philadelphia Business Journal.
Gusdorff, who sold his urgent care centers business two years ago, is now KW Ventures’ managing partner and medical director. KW is one of the company’s that has been awarded a permit to run medical marijuana dispensaries.
Each permit from the Pennsylvania Department of Health allows the holder to operate up to three dispensaries in their assigned zone. KW is the limited liability company that will run FireFly Dispensaries.
The firm has been awarded the permit for the southcentral zone and plans to open dispensaries in Dauphin County, Cumberland County, and Franklin County. Gursdorff will model the dispensaries after the CareSTAT urgent care centers he used to own and operate.
According to Gusdorff, as soon as the medical marijuana bill was signed into law early last year, he and his business partner gathered investors for their bid on the permit.
“We all had personal experiences with people who did or could have benefitted from medical marijuana,” he said.
