1. Give us a brief history of your organization.
The Aspen Clinic is a medical weight loss and wellness company that provides the education and motivation to help patients not only lose weight, but also keep the weight off through proper lifestyle changes. It all started with one clinic in Baton Rouge, and now the company has grown to be the leader in weight loss with 9 locations throughout Louisiana. After over 30 years of growth and development, the program now includes medical and holistic options for weight loss, nutritional guidance, vitamin injections, and it’s own specially formulated natural supplement line.
2. What would you tell the rest of Acadiana makes you special?
The key ingredient to our success is our team of customer service-focused health professionals, dedicated to maintaining a positive, uplifting environment for patient support and success. We understand that weight loss is an emotional event, and we strive to not only provide comfort and accountability during our patient’s journey, but also hope to make it fun!
3. What are you most proud of?
The real joy of what we do is to see how teaching a person how to eat and live a healthier lifestyle can completely transform them into a happier, and healthier, version of themselves. The reward is knowing that person will live a longer life, and perhaps help their family do the same from what they learned at the Aspen Clinic.
4. Where do you see your organization in 10 years? What are your plans for the future?
We are constantly pushing towards growth and finding ways Aspen Clinic can improve to better serve our patients. Our goal is to continue to grow in the amount of patients we see and to open more locations in Louisiana and possibly Texas.
5. 1A is making an impact as we take an active role in improving the community we live in. Our members are making an impact, too! – What does impact mean to you? How is your company making an impact?
Impact is not only the impression you leave, but also the difference you make. The Aspen Clinic is very fortunate to make a difference every single day by teaching our patients how to change their lifestyle, get healthy, and live longer lives. As a company, we also try to make an impact on businesses around us to show how customers should be treated and through local philanthropy.
