Tell us about yourself?
My name is Steve Ajayi, PT. I am the owner and CEO of Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness Clinic here in Airdrie, Alberta. I am a physiotherapist, clinical mentor and healthcare entrepreneur with 23-plus years of experience spanning countries like Nigeria, the Republic of Ireland, The United Kingdom, and Canada.
The inspiration for me to enter into this profession is down to my deep passion for helping people. I am deeply passionate about assisting people to become better versions of themselves. A career in health care and, more recently, in clinical management and mentorship was an easy choice for me. Above everything else, it is a passion and a way of life.
If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
Think Big! Start early! Get a mentor, serve your community, and don’t forget to enjoy the experience no matter what.
What problem does your business solve?
Our clinic provides a one-stop shop for therapy, rehabilitation, and wellness services for people of all ages looking to improve their Physical well-being, whether they are recovering from an injury or illness, want to maintain an active lifestyle, or optimise their quality of life at any stage. Our Core services are Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, and Registered Massage Therapy services.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
The biggest inspiration for us is to see people smiling again and enjoying life to the fullest. Many people seek our services, having been affected by injuries, diseases, or aging. The joy of seeing them leave the clinic with smiles on their faces is priceless.
What is your magic sauce?
Our Patient! It’s all about them! We designed and lived our practice through the patient’s lenses. This is something you don’t see a lot in healthcare. Our flagship client-centric model of care emphasizes care packages as a journey through the lens of the consumer (our patients). For us, it’s all about the “Patient Experience.” It is great to see other service providers and upcoming generations in this field taking on this paradigm shift.
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
Keep as many people in our community moving, active, happy, and enjoying life as much as possible. Continue to grow as individuals and as an organization. Be more involved with other areas of growth and support within our community. Also, as an immigrant-owned business, we hope to continue to be a facilitator of opportunities for immigrant professionals who face many challenges with access to opportunities so they can, in turn, give back to their communities.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
COVID-19! The impact it had on the health and well-being of our communities is something we are still coming to terms with.
