Ardor Health is Officially Recognized as a Certified Women Owned Business!


Guess what!?

We are thrilled to announce that Ardor Health has officially become a certified women-owned business through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). This prestigious certification is not just a testament to our dedication but also a significant step forward in our mission to empower women in the healthcare staffing industry. As we celebrate this milestone, we want to share the story of our journey, the challenges we’ve overcome, and the significance of this achievement for us and our community.

Starting a business in the healthcare staffing industry is no small feat. Rewind the clock 20 years or so, add in the fact that this is a predominantly male-dominated field, and you have an Everest needing to be climbed. Cue Patty Lamia. Founded and operated alongside her own family, Patty carved a space for Ardor Health in the healthcare landscape. Her drive was directed by a single vision: to provide exceptional staffing solutions while creating a supportive and inclusive environment for healthcare professionals.

The road has been filled with challenges, from navigating regulatory complexities to ensuring we meet the high standards required in healthcare services. One key challenge we faced was establishing a presence and credibility in a highly competitive market. Building relationships with facilities and healthcare professionals requires perseverance and a continual commitment to quality. As a female-owned company, we often encountered skepticism and had to work twice as hard to prove ourselves. However, these obstacles only fueled our determination to succeed.

Patty’s leadership has been instrumental in overcoming these challenges. Her ability to innovate and adapt has been crucial in navigating the ever-changing healthcare landscape. Patty’s unwavering commitment to excellence and her visionary approach have driven Ardor Health to new heights, making us a trusted partner in the healthcare staffing industry.

Obtaining WBENC certification is a significant achievement that opens up new opportunities for our business. This certification not only recognizes Patty and our efforts but also connects us with a powerful network of other women-owned organizations committed to diversity and inclusion. It enhances our visibility and credibility, enabling us to compete more effectively for contracts and partnerships.

This certification is more than just a title; it represents the growing support for women in the business world. By supporting women-owned businesses, we actively contribute to a more diverse and inclusive economy. This, in turn, inspires the next generation of female leaders to pursue their trailblazing dreams.

The impact of these accolades extends far beyond our company. It is a victory for every woman who has ever faced challenges in her professional journey. It signifies progress and the breaking down of barriers that have historically hindered women from reaching their full potential in business.

We believe that supporting small and minority-owned businesses is crucial for fostering innovation and economic growth. These businesses bring unique perspectives and solutions, driving progress in various industries. By choosing to support them, we contribute to a more vibrant and resilient economy.

For Patty, this achievement furthers her mission of empowering women in the workplace. We are committed to using this achievement to create more opportunities for women and minority entrepreneurs, paving the way for a brighter future.

Our WBENC certification is not just a milestone; it is a testament to our resilience, hard work, and commitment to excellence. As we celebrate this achievement, we remain dedicated to our mission of providing exceptional healthcare staffing solutions and empowering women in business. We are excited about the future and the opportunities this certification brings, and we look forward to continuing to make a positive impact in our industry and beyond.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Together, we can create a more inclusive and prosperous future.
