NBDC helps medical business  from startup
to expansion
Trent Kleinow opened Priority Medical Transport in 2015 with his brother, Trev, and Jim Smith, M.D., after nearly two years laying the groundwork.  The North Platte business began with two ambulances and 14 staff members including paramedics, nurses and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and has since expanded its resources, staff and service area. Kleinow credits the assistance of Charlie McPherson, NBDC consultant, for helping build a business plan that impressed bank and investors.

Charlie McPherson, BS, EDFP, is the North Platte/McCook center director. He provides direct one-on-one consulting assistance to small business owners and entrepreneurs offering business planning assistance, financial analysis, market research, marketing planning, and operations assistance.
