scott wolf overview
Scott Wolf - Overview
  • My business background is a blend of entrepreneurial experiences gained from 17+ years developing business and managing operations for startup and fortune 500 companies.
  • As a Consulting VP, I built a Greenfield startup from $0 to $20 million annual revenue in a three year period. A significant portion (30%) of that revenue was gained through the delivery of customized training for corporation’s undertaking major business process and systems changes.
  • For the last 10 years, I have been a board member advising CASE on curriculums, marketing, corporate engagement, etc. I am also an adjunct MBA professor in the Weatherhead MBA School at Case Western Reserve University, where I have also developed courses and gained approval for them in the MBA program at CASE
  • Personally, I am a long time Medina resident and am pretty well networked within the business community here. Several CEO’s of the regions large and small companies live (and golf with me) in my neighborhood of Fox Meadow Country Club. I am also friends with members of the economic development board and other civic groups in the area.

medina characteristics
Medina Characteristics
  • The dominant employment sectors for this region in 2005 were trade, transportation and utilities; professional and business services; manufacturing; and education and health services.
  • Management of companies and enterprises is more concentrated here than elsewhere in the state and experienced the most job growth from 2000 to 2005, followed by health care and social assistance.

**** The sectors in boxes denote those sectors which appear in both the top 10 gross employment #’s and the top 10 in new jobs.

Medina Characteristics

Educational Attainment

  • “Fairly” similar pattern of educational attainment when compared to the surrounding counties and the rest of the state.
  • Perhaps two salient points
    • Smaller % of Masters degrees
    • Larger % of High School degrees or better
  • Commuter patterns cause longer workdays and create strong need for local educational opportunities for evening and weekend
medina health care developments
Medina Health Care Developments

February 1, 2009

  • Summa Health System broke ground Monday on the new Health Center at Lake Medina. The 100,000-square-foot facility will offer comprehensive outpatient services, a physician medical office building and an ambulatory surgery center. Construction will begin in February 2009 with a scheduled opening in spring 2010.

April 2, 2009

  • Cleveland Clinic and Medina General Hospital reach agreement bringing capital investments expected to total $40 million to support a multi-year strategic plan to strengthen the hospital. The Cleveland Clinic will also make a $10 million investment…..

April 22, 2009

  • University Hospitals will transform the Waterford Office Park, into the UH Medina Health Center by the end of the year. The UH Medina Health Center will cover internal medicine, pediatrics, family medicine, urgent care, advanced laboratory and radiology services, and feature Rainbow Children’s Hospital and Heart & Vascular Institute and have an urgent care center with corporate health services.
  • UH also reached agreement with Sharon Family Physicians, and plans an additional 11,000 sq. ft. expansion of this practice to include diagnostic, specialty services, sports medicine and surgery.
statewide health care skills demand
Statewide Health Care Skills Demand

A study released by NEONI at the end of 2004, Measuring Student Capacity and Faculty Resources in Northeast Ohio Schools of Nursing, found that the region’s schools of nursing are full.

In the 2002-2003 academic year, more than 550 qualified students were turned away from area nursing schools because the programs were at capacity.

However, the country is about to face the largest ever retirement of nurses in the next 15 to 20 years.

manufacturing opportunities
Manufacturing Opportunities

There is momentum building for the current administration to fully fund programs of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT) at levels Congress has already approved for FY2010, and use of other authorized funds, to invest $1.2 billion in fuel cells, hydrogen and infrastructure.

  • Some of the pertinent components for MCUC could be:
    • EXPAND Learning Demonstrations $375 Million
      • Learning demonstrations put early commercial and advanced experimental systems in the hands of government and private sector users who help evaluate the systems even while enjoying their real-world benefits.
    • BUILD American Manufacturing Capacity $100 Million
      • Fuel cell companies and suppliers need to invest in manufacturing capacity but money from banks and investors is difficult to find. Federal grants and tax credits for investment in manufacturing infrastructure will keep jobs and industrial capability in the US, stimulate the US supply chain and reduce unit costs. US manufacturers can begin upgrading and expanding their capacity immediately.
    • ACCELERATE Research in Partnership with Industry $350 Million
      • Federal research employs thousands in high-tech professions and trades. Fuel cell and hydrogen research can retain and expand jobs at universities and national laboratories and in the private sector, and can accelerate commercialization. Basic research is needed in advanced materials.
