A few months ago I realized something - this year marks my company's 10 year anniversary. After recently acquiring sole ownership of the company, and in lieu of a decade of experience, I decided that in the spirit of change, I should have a new title and focus. My focus would remain similar to before, but the focus was finding a continuous evolution towards my expertise - getting better results for hospital labs. I also felt the company deserved a new name. Now, after much thought and reflection into each decision that has led to the point of me writing this letter, I can honestly say, I am looking forward to the future.
Several years ago, my son's school changed headmasters; it marked the beginning of a new era for their school. Their motto, their direction and focus – everything was on a course for evolution for the better. I liken their situation to my company at the present moment.
One of the first things the new headmaster did was to develop a new motto for the school. He said he wanted a motto that was simple, yet complex. Clear, yet adaptable. Easy to remember. And he found it in the two words ‘Go Beyond.’
Now I felt I could use this opportunity to have a chance at positive change in my company, an evolution in our value and focus. I focused on the question, "What is Sprick Group's purpose?" For me, the bottom line is to help laboratories get better. It's the key ingredient that led me to a career in laboratory medicine and it is still my purpose. It’s why I get paid – literally. I focus on how to better my clients situation as a business: how to better their bottom line, all the way to the trickling down effects of bettering the services they provide their clients.
Our new motto is “Better Results for Labs.” I am committed to helping you achieve better results: to exceed expectations, to strive for superior outcomes, to reach for new heights, and, yes, to stretch beyond the comfort zone.
I'm excited for the next ten years and the increased potential of continuing to help my clients achieve better results for their labs. That's always been my goal: and now, more than ever, an increasing number of healthcare incentives are changing the way that hospitals operate - that's where I will focus the efforts of my company. I’m using this ten year anniversary to better my focus of making the best out of your lab, just as I have been doing all these years – only now we do it better.

“I hope the new motto inspires and encourages you, too. No matter where you are, I believe you can always get better.”
All my best,
Leslie Sprick (CEO)
