Lt. Gov. Tina Smith sees three M’s in Rochester’s immediate future. “This coming year — 2016 — is really going to be about marketing, momentum and metrics,” she said during Thursday’s meeting of the Destination Medical Center Corp. board.
As board chairwoman, she said marketing will help sell the potential of DMC, and metrics will help measure future success. Both likely will spur momentum.
Hours later, however, as nearly 100 residents gathered at St. Francis of Assisi Church to discuss the expected growth, a few participants said they wish DMC efforts would slow down, citing concerns related to the potential momentum Smith and others discussed that morning.
At this point, there’s not much to slow down.
