Balizza Healthcare Solutions is a Black-owned health care company. The company was started by two sisters who are both Registered Nurses who noted an increase in the demand for quality healthcare givers due to the growing elderly population. Their passion for the health and wellness of the elderly stems from the fact that we were raised by grandparents. As children, they saw first hand the challenges they faced just from the effects of aging and didn’t know how to help. It’s the same reason why they chose to pursue careers in the healthcare field.
At Balizza Healthcare Solutions, they equip ordinary people with skills and tools that enable them to become extraordinary healthcare providers. From STNA (State tested Nurse Aides) classes, Ohio State STNA testing, CPR certification, Retail sales of Uniforms for healthcare providers, job placement, and mentor opportunities for those wishing to start a career in the healthcare field.
Their business model is based on five values referred to as “IRISE” Integrity, Respect, Inspire, Serve and Excellence. Their mission is to improve the health and wellness of the elderly through training of the people that care for them at a very basic level. In the process, they are empowering individuals who had lost hope on getting a rewarding steady job. To enroll in their training program, participants need to be at least 18-years-old, a high school diploma is preferred but not required, a negative criminal background, drug test and a good dose of compassion to make a difference in the lives of others.
What sets Balizza Healthcare Solutions apart is not only the 35 years of experience combined in the healthcare field as Registered Nurses, the passion for teaching about healthcare, but also the location of their business. They grew up in Westwood and over the years have seen a decline in the kind of services offered and saw an opportunity. Their students tell them about the positive impact made on their lives. For a new company, 23 students have graduated so far and 21 have passed their state test, have full-time jobs, and are loving it. There are also 3 enrolled in Nursing school. Balizza Healthcare Solutions is making a difference in the community.
