A fast-growing home health care provider that operates out of the Business Incubator Center in Grand Junction has earned recognition for its efforts.

The International Business Innovation Association presented MLS Senior Care with its Outstanding Client of the Year Award. The awards program showcases the efforts of clients of business incubator and entrepreneurship centers.

“It’s amazing what one company can accomplish with the right tribe,” said Diana Conner, founder and owner of MLS Senior Care.

Conner attributed the success of her firm to the center and its staff and programs as well as the employees of her company.

Jon Maraschin, executive director of the Business Incubator Center, in turn praised Conner. “Diana is the epitome of a smart, savvy and caring business owner with a company that so positively impacts our community, her clients and her staff. Having MLS Senior Care in our community is truly a blessing. Diane and her team are simply amazing.”

Conner launched MLS Senior Care in 2016 while she attended the Leading Edge business planning course offered at the center. She’s since grown the business to include 80 employees — 50 of them full time — who provide a total of more than 1,600 hours of services a week that include companionship, meal preparation and wellness checks.
