Thank you to Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges; Cecile Bedor from the Greater Minneapolis-Saint Paul Regional Economic Development Partnership; Kevin McKinnon, from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development; and Elyse Ruiz, representing U. S. Senator Amy Klobuchar. We had a great event celebrating our partnership with Minneapolis and the State of Minnesota to support our growth and leadership in healthcare.

All our special guests assisted with the $500K job incentive package that is helping fuel the growth of ABILITY as we create over 170 jobs over the next 2-3 years.
