(Santa Fe Springs, California – December 2, 2021) – Akeso’s Santa Fe Springs North clinic was formally christened today in a gala ribbon cutting ceremony jointly hosted by clinic Operations Manager Alex Saulus and Santa Fe Springs Chamber of Commerce CEO Kathie Fink. The event celebrated the clinic’s reopening after a brief consolidation with the SFS South Clinic in 2021 due to the COVID pandemic. The clinic interior was extensively remodeled during this time, and new signage was installed on the exterior of the building.
“On this special occasion, we are pleased to officially reopen this clinic and welcome our long-term clients in attendance as well as many local dignitaries” said Saulus. “Our focus is on continuing to give back to this community through our partnerships with our clients and our special relationship with the Santa Fe Springs, Whittier and Pico Rivera Chambers of Commerce.”
Among the many in attendance were 32nd District State Senator Bob Archuleta, representatives for 4th District Supervisor Janice Hahn and 57th District Assembly Member Lisa Calderon as well as leaders from the clinic’s clients such as Albertsons Distribution Center, Little Lake School District, Shultz Steel Company and Rose Hills Memorial Park.
Akeso CEO Chuck Kruger, who made remarks before the official ribbon cutting said “I am incredibly thankful for all of the hard work completed by the Santa Fe Springs team to get the North clinic re-opened. The clinic looks amazing, and we look forward to being able to serve the local community with our amazing providers and staff in not just one, but two clinics! What really inspired me about this ribbon cutting event was the level of support and engagement we received from the local employers and community leaders who came out to participate in this event and share their stories about our long history in the area.”
