Ryan knows she can count on teamwork from her fellow intensive care unit (ICU) staff when it matters most. The registered nurse has worked the past two years in the hospital’s ICU and enjoys getting to know her patients that often need intense, one-onone care. During a patient’s stay, she may provide personal care, deliver medications and order physician consultations. During a recent shift, the staff handled three codes, where patients quickly became critical. “I knew that I could trust and count on the people I work with,” Ryan said. “We have a great team here.”

Operation Oswego County: An Economic and Job Development Corporation Serving Oswego County By L. Michael Treadwell, CEcD, executive director, Operation Oswego County

O

peration Oswego County (OOC) is a private, nonprofit organization that works to enhance and protect the business and industrial climate of Oswego County. To achieve that goal, we provide comprehensive assistance to existing businesses and those seeking to locate here. OOC is a full-service economic development organization ready to serve businesses, whether they are developing a business plan, looking for the best site or searching for financing or other assistance. OOC’s primary objectives are to help create new job opportunities, retain employment, build a broader real property tax base, diversify the economy and improve the area’s quality of life all through a planned, organized and environmentally friendly economic development process. Since 1953, we have helped deliver more than $3.7 billion in investments and more than 21,800 new and retained jobs to Oswego County. We have grown from a local, voluntary, community-spirited development organization to becoming the county’s designated economic development arm. We are guided by a board of directors made up of community-minded people from business, industry, labor, education, agriculture and government throughout Oswego County. We are funded by voluntary contributions and local, state and federal government support. As a county-wide, comprehensive economic development organization, we can provide, among other things: Site Selection Assistance. An inventory of industrial sites and available buildings enables us to find homes for new businesses quickly. Financial Packaging. We help firms access appropriate financing from the Small Business Administration (SBA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Empire State Development Corporation, the County of Oswego In-

8

dustrial Development Agency (IDA) and other state, local and federal financing sources. We also help firms secure bank financing which is always the primary source of funds for most projects. Planning and Coordination. We can help firms with permitting, zoning and coordinating activities with state and local agencies. Industry/Government Liaison. OOC serves as a liaison between firms and governmental agencies. Assistance in Accessing Special Incentive Programs. We can help eligible businesses receive real property tax abatements, sales tax exemptions, job training, low interest financing, state grants and tax credits, utility incentives and more. Retention/Expansion Outreach Programs. OOC is focused on helping existing employers with expansion initiatives as well as in overcoming barriers that may be impeding business success. Specialized Research and Technical Assistance. We provide businesses with information and data to assist in decision making. OOC coordinates and implements special economic development initiatives to enhance the potential to create and retain jobs in Oswego County. Some of these initiatives include: Industrial Parks. OOC operates five industrial/business parks in Oswego County — the Oswego County Industrial Park in Schroeppel, the Airport Industrial Park in Volney, the Lake Ontario Industrial Park in the city of Oswego, the Columbia Mills Business Park in Minetto and the Peck Road Industrial Site in the town of Richland. Other sites around the county are currently being studied for potential business parks. Business Incubators. The Business Expansion Center in the city of Oswego is designed to help non-retail, industrial and service businesses achieve significant growth and development during the first few years of business with the intention of eventually relocating into private commercial space. Plans are being formulated

on establishing another incubator facility in the Oswego County Industrial Park in Schroeppel Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise Program. OOC can help new and expanding businesses obtain Minority and Women Business Enterprises state designation, as well as other necessary development support. SBA Certified Development Company. OOC is authorized to finance projects using the SBA 504 loan program which can fund up to 40 percent of fixed asset financing for eligible businesses at below market rates. USDA IRP Program. The IDA in cooperation with USDA has established a short term financing program for working capital and/or machinery and equipment. IDA Administration. OOC provides the administrative support for the IDA and helps to package and provide underwriting for all IDA economic development assistance utilizing IDA programs. Micro-Enterprise Training Program. OOC works cooperatively with the City of Fulton Community Development Agency, City of Oswego Community Development Office and the SUNY Oswego Office of Business and Community Relations to provide guidance and support to people interested in starting or expanding a small business. Domestic and International Marketing Program. OOC aggressively promotes and markets Oswego County for purposes of attracting new businesses and for enhancing the business climate image of the county.

CEO Profiles Ann C. Gilpin Company: Oswego Health Position: President and CEO With the organization since: January 2007 In current position since: January 2007 Education: Bachelor of Science in nursing, D’Youville College; Master of Science in health care management, Marymount University Career highlights: • Oswego Health’s continued successful recruitment of new physicians and the retention of existing medical staff members. In the past three years, Oswego Health has welcomed 24 physicians in a wide range of specialties needed in the community. These include orthopedics, cardiology, family medicine, hospitalists and otolaryngology. To accommodate these physicians, for the first time in many years, Oswego Health is renovating facilities in its Oswego Health Services Center to provide these physicians comfortable office space with the technology they require to provide exceptional healthcare services. Using the newly published medical staff development plan, Oswego Health will continue this trend and expect to welcome more high-quality physicians to the community. • Securing more than $40 million in Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law New York funds, allowed Oswego Health to transform healthcare services in Oswego County with the construction of both the Fulton and Central Square medical centers. Both facilities introduced a new type of medical care to the county — urgent care — which provides treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. In 2013, more than 25,000 visitors were treated at the Fulton Urgent Care Center and in the three months of 2012 that the Central Square Urgent Care

10

Center was open, more than 3,000 were provided care. • The completed collaboration among Oswego Health, Northern Oswego County Health Services Inc., and Oswego County Opportunities. The collaboration was awarded an $8.34 million HEAL grant to enhance primary care services for the residents of Oswego County. This grant ensures that primary care is affordable in the rural parts of the county for generations to come. These funds also supported the opening of the Central Square Medical Center. Current affiliations: Board member, Operation Oswego County, Inc.; HealtheConnections; Iroquois Healthcare Alliance Association; CenterState CEO; Central New York Area Health Education Center; board member and treasurer, United Iroquois Shared Services; member, advisory board for SUNY Oswego MBA program in health services administration; NYS Partnership for Patients Culture and Leadership Work Group; Oswego County Child Protective Advisory Council; American College of Healthcare Executives; Zonta Club. ■ How do you describe your managerial philosophy or approach? I follow the approach of being open and honest with the employees. Communication is key in any approach and often times it is the misunderstandings of the expectations that cause the most frustrations in the workplace. I believe that if you treat individuals with respect and lead by example this will lead to productive employees, who at the end of the day will have provided quality care to the population of individuals we are responsible for. I have an optimistic view on life which I also believe makes my approach one filled with flexibility. Our world is ever-changing so we must have the ability to change with it. One other thing is very important to me and was said by Mary Waldrip: “It’s important for people to know what you stand for. It’s equally important that they

know what you won’t stand for.” ■ What type of skill sets do you possess which makes you an effective leader? I believe in honest and continual communication with staff members, keeping them well informed of both the positives and challenges within our health system. I also believe in leading by example, assisting our employees whenever I am able. Finally, leaders must be passionate about the field they have chosen as a career path. Anyone who knows me will say I am very passionate about providing exceptional healthcare to our patients. ■ How can the business climate in Oswego County be improved? Oswego Health is a major employer in Oswego County with more than 1,200 employees, who mostly reside in the county and also have an economic impact of more than $171 million on the region. To maintain our status as a community leader and to ensure healthcare business remains local, residents need to support our many services when they require healthcare services. To meet the growing healthcare needs of the community, we have recruited new physicians in needed specialties and have renovated our facilities with advanced technology. Residents need to know that Oswego Health is providing high-quality, exceptional healthcare services, close to where they live and work. ■ What do you do for fun? I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes my husband, two sons, a new daughter-in-law and my wonderful granddaughter.

I’ve heard “benevolent dictator” thrown out there before (kidding, of course). I’d like to think that a key skill all successful managers have is the ability to communicate a plan and then assist with the execution of the plan. Get out of the way of your performers, celebrate success and don’t dwell on mistakes. After all, if you don’t make mistakes, you’re just not trying hard enough. ■ What types of skill set do you possess which makes you an effective leader?

CEO Profiles Roberts. There were a lot of takeaways from that book, but one that continues to stick out to me is to always keep a sense of humor about your self. “If you take yourself too seriously, you’ll never truly be successful, and the Huns don’t work well for a sourpuss.” That said, and given how serious we are here at the newspaper about providing the best local news possible every day, a good sense of humor goes a long way in my role as publisher. ■ How can the business climate in Oswego County and the region be improved? There are so many factors involved in improving our business climate, and I’m a stakeholder in some grassroots efforts like the Literacy Coalition of Oswego County and the Oswego Renaissance Association, which have far-reaching and positive benefits for the growth and success of our community. However, the one big thing that I’ve preached from day one of my involvement with community newspapers is the importance of shopping locally and supporting our small businesses. Small business is the cornerstone of any community and by supporting these businesses you’re ensuring more local dollars stay here and help our economy to grow. It also encourages an entrepreneurial spirit, which is so vital to our economic growth and success. ■ What do you do for fun? Family time with my wife and three sons (16, 14, and 10) is my biggest source of entertainment. My boys play sports, music, and are involved in community theater and the arts, which keep us plenty busy year-round. In addition to this, I spend other free time out on the golf course and travel a little here and there.

Position: Owner/operator/administrator With the organization since: 2009 In current position since: Administrator since March 2010, owner since February 2012 Education: Bachelor of Science in health administration from Ithaca College; Master of Science in health administration from Cornell University Career highlights: Prior to returning to Oswego, I served as regional vice president of operations for Wingate Healthcare with operational oversight of nine skilled nursing facilities between the Hudson Valley and western Massachusetts. I also continue to be the vice president of business development for Alternative Solutions Group, a back office service provider for skilled nursing facilities based out of East Aurora. Current affiliations: New York State Health Facilities Association; New York Power Authority; Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce ■ How would you describe your managerial philosophy or approach? Maintain the right distance to enable you to grow a strong team that can function whether you are there or not. ■ What types of skill set do you possess which makes you an effective leader? Many years in this business to understand outcomes and a team-building approach to allow staff freedom to determine how they will reach those outcomes. Know when to micro-manage and when to allow free flow and manager discretion. Promoting organizational structure and clarity is key. Consistency and predictability in practice whenever possible. ■ How can the business climate in Oswego County and the region be improved? Focus on small business owner incentives and building our core: Middle America drives the country and it will drive Oswego County, too. The overall market is blazing a new trail; territory we’ve never seen before. Ultimately, the focus must stay on how to protect the middle class and maintain its growth. We have

Lawrence M. Coyle Company: Entergy Nuclear-James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Station Position: Site vice president With the organization since: 2011 In current position since: 2013 Education: Bachelor of Science in nuclear engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana; Master of Business Administration from the University of Chicago Career highlights: Thirty-year veteran of the nuclear industry beginning with Exelon at Dresden Nuclear Power Station as an engineer in 1982. Served for one year as an operations peer evaluator for the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations from 1995-1996. Served as operations director at LaSalle Nuclear Power Station. He then accepted the

20

position of maintenance director for Braidwood Nuclear Power Station. Promoted to plant manager in 2007 where the organization realized its best safety, human performance and collective radiation exposure results. Named general manager, plant operations for Entergy’s Indian Point Energy Center in October 2011 Affiliations: Member, American Nuclear Society; past board member, Big Brother and Big Sister ■ How would you describe your managerial philosophy or approach? One of my managers told me a while back that once you take on the mantle of being a supervisor, there are two primary things that you now must do: grow your people and raise standards. And it really is that simple. When I first entered into the nuclear power business, it was all a technical arena and I was measured on how well I worked through and solved technical issues. When I took on the supervisor role, the reliance on technical was still there, but the focus on the most important aspect, the people, really began. Growing your people has to be the focus for any good manager, or more importantly, a leader. The raising standards focus comes naturally to anyone working in nuclear power. We know that we are entrusted with public health and safety, and that our focus must always be to look for ways to improve our performance to be the best we can be. ■ What types of skill set do you possess which makes you an effective leader? Just a very few things. Communicate, have a positive attitude and exude energy. I don’t think I was born with this either; it’s something I worked on. I’m sure there are natural born leaders, but I am a firm believer that you can develop these skill sets. As far as communication, you have to be able to communicate to the folks in the field (and of course you need to be visible in the field), and you have to be able to communicate to senior executives. ■ What do you do for fun? Spending time with my family is the topmost fun. I have two sons in college and a daughter in high school. Following their exploits is hilarious and fun. I also enjoy watching and playing sports. I do also enjoy motorcycle riding and typically go on one long bike ride each year with my buddies.

My managerial philosophy is to encourage employees to take risks that will enhance their learning, all within a context of accountability to their job duties and their own professional development. The workplace is akin to a classroom where making mistakes and learning are considered important processes. As well, I highly value collaboration, inclusion and transparency in communication and work to apply these principles in all aspects of my work. ■ What types of skill set do you possess which makes you an effective leader? I have worked in a variety of departments and levels within the community college system, making me sensitive to the challenges and complexities that staff experience every day on the job. As well, I view every employee as a human-in-process who has the capability of learning and growing and oversee their work in that light. ■ What do you do for fun? Along with enjoying my dogs on a daily basis, these days “fun” is working on endless papers for my Ed.D. Yep, I’m a geek.

OCO’s strategic planning process incorporates surveys and focus groups from a variety of stakeholders including consumers, staff, community partners and funders. Feedback is obtained about OCO’s strengths, areas for development and needs of individuals, families and the community. Preliminary feedback about community needs includes the need for affordable, decent housing, increased

employment opportunities and meeting basic needs of families. OCO has also been developing a course for incorporating strategic fund development to assure diversity of funds, sustainability and to develop less reliance on traditional government funds. � Operations: Oswego County Opportunities is a private, nonprofit human services agency and has been providing human services since 1966. OCO is the designated community action agency for Oswego County and is committed to partnering with others to improve the quality of life for all and to help create successful communities. More than 90 cents of every $1 spent by OCO goes into program services. OCO’s mission is accomplished through the combined efforts of more than 600 professional employees and nearly 1,200 volunteers. This team delivers a needed array of services through 50 different programs to nearly 30,000 individuals annually. OCO provides educational services to all ages, support for youth, reproductive health services, assistance and housing for the homeless and disabled, meals for the elderly and the homebound, addiction recovery services, independence for the disabled, safety for the abused, and transportation for all. In 2013, OCO began the new year by saying good-bye to primary care services. Its Fulton and Oswego practices moved under the ownership and operation of Northern Oswego County Health Services, Inc. OCO faced challenges throughout the year due to funding reductions from the federal sequestration as well as increased competition for limited state and federal grant resources. This resulted in the loss of the Rural After School Program and reductions in Head Start services, as well as the loss of approximately 43 positions and reduction in services for nearly 800 consumers. Changes in coordination and scheduling of transportation services for Medicaid enrollees on the state level impacted OCO transportation, making OCO a provider of transport services but not the scheduler of those services. Continued progress was made toward implementing the agency’s universal database for client intake and service management that recently received support from the Richard Shineman Foundation, as well as new data systems for transportation, payroll, and human resources. New requirements from the NYS Justice Center for Protection of Persons with Special Needs brought additional incident reporting and staff screening measures for employees who work with our special needs populations.
