We are a multi-award-winning Therapy and Wellness clinic offering Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, and Massage Therapy Services. We are known for our top quality clinical care infused with a unique patient-centric approach to care and amazing patient experience.
Tell us about yourself
My name is Steve Ajayi PT. I am the owner and president of Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness Clinic here in Airdrie, Alberta. I am a physiotherapist, healthcare manager, and clinical mentor with 23+ 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 a better version 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 for me.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My greatest achievement is revolutionizing outpatient therapy services delivery in our local community through our flagship client-centric model of care that 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's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I think it is being able to change my mindset about what is possible and achievable. Great things are made possible by those who are prepared to stretch the limit of their imaginations and then work on it!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Start now. It may be tough, it may be urgently but start anyway.
- Get yourself a mentor.
- Enjoy the journey! Entrepreneurship has no fixed destination; it's all about the experience, so make it count.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I want to say a big thank you to our amazing team at Zenith Physiotherapy and wellness. We have been lucky to have such an amazingly talented and dedicated team working on the vision day in and day out. Also, thank the people of the City of Airdrie here in Alberta and surrounding communities for their feedback and trust in us. For four years running, you continue to choose us as your top service provider. Your support has meant so much to us, and for that, we are grateful. We promise to keep to the ideals that you have come to associate with the Zenith brand.
