IN THIS ISSUE:
- QUIZ: Anatomic Directions & Movement
You may recall that in our March newsletter, we mentioned our continued growth and upcoming move to a new office with more space for our expanding staff. Well, moving day is now here!
Our new office–Suite 200A– is only about 75 feet from our old one, but the expanded space will make all the difference. And by the way, while our physical address has changed, you can still reach us at the same phone numbers.
We are so looking forward to our new headquarters as it allows the right amount of quiet and of collaborative training space for our newer nurse consultants. If you are in the area, we would love to have you stop by in the weeks to come.
Our new address:
1260 Iroquois Avenue
Naperville, Illinois 60563-8549
We hit another milestone this year; MLCS will be celebrating our 25th anniversary come June 1! This represents literally tens of thousands of medical record reviews on all types of injuries and medical conditions.
Thank you so much for making that possible! We will have cake!
