Azalea Health Receives 2013 Small Business of the Year Award

Azalea Health was awarded the 2013 Small Business of the Year Award by the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, March 21, 2013.
VALDOSTA, Ga. - March 29, 2013 - PRLog -- Valdosta, GA (March 29, 2013) -- The Small Business of the Year Award is given to a business with 100 or fewer employees that exhibits growth and stability in the business community. “Azalea Health was chosen because of their management philosophy, work ethic and commitment to their employees and this community, which is shown through their impressive list of accomplishments in such a short period of time,” stated Jeff Sikes, a Selection Committee Member.

Though Azalea has had many things working in the company's favor upon opening in April 2008, such as securing a $100,000 line of credit and winning the Chamber’s business plan competition, they also faced numerous obstacles. Upon the opening of Azalea's doors, they were abruptly met with the realization of the financial crisis that greatly affected their target market of small physician practices, who were themselves hit hard by the crisis and resistant to purchasing any new services or software.

With little name recognition and no track record, coupled with the negative impact of the financial crisis, Azalea forged ahead and began establishing a foothold in the Valdosta-Lowndes County community. This was done by developing relationships with community leaders and physicians.“Our surrounding community has offered us the unlimited support and guidance that is essential to any small business success,” says Baha Zeidan, CEO. “We strive to keep collaboration at the foundation of all operations". With that thought in mind, Azalea hosted the first ‘Collaboration for Future Innovation’ forum in 2012, held to discuss ways the university and technical college can collaborate with local businesses to create opportunities for advancement throughout the Valdosta-Lowndes County area.
