Ellen Stang, an MD from Plymouth Meeting and founder of ProgenyHealth, credits her participation in the Winning Women program with shifting her mindset on how big her business could get, writes Geri Stengel for the Forbes.
Stang started ProgenyHealth in 2003 to provide comprehensive case management for neonatal intensive care units. She realized that social determinants of health were not being addressed, resulting in high readmission rates and growing health costs.
Stang believed that to improve health outcomes, basic life needs had to improve. This includes food, clothing, shelter, and a safe home environment.
Her company focuses on a collaborative approach between doctors, hospitals, payers, and families to improve health outcomes and reduce costs.
She took part in the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women program, which supports high-potential businesswomen with know-how, connections, and community, in 2012.
That helped her realize “the sky’s the limit when it comes to scaling my business,” she said, adding that participating in the program “was the wind beneath my wings.”
In addition to changing her way of thinking, the program also provided Stang with the connections and resources that made it possible for her to turn her new perspective into reality.
