“What excites me most about our future is that we are ready to bring Gillette’s care model to the world and change how conditions such as cerebral palsy are treated today.” Nolan adds, “I think about our staff of elite clinicians and how they’re supported by the best care teams, researchers, administrative supporters, and leaders. I think about our care model and multidisciplinary expertise, and I think about our technology and resources. I know we are ready to do great things.” 

Prior to joining Gillette, Patrick held management and leadership positions in three healthcare systems while participating actively in community volunteer efforts. A graduate of Winona State University, Patrick completed his graduate studies at St. Mary’s University of Minnesota.
