Executive Director, Laser Spine Institute Scottsdale
Some people choose the business world; others choose the medical world — but not Heidi Lenderking. As the Executive Director at Laser Spine Institute Scottsdale, Heidi is the glue that holds both sides together.
Much like the conductor of a finely tuned symphony, she orchestrates all facility-wide operations at our ambulatory surgery center in Scottsdale. Between planning, development, delegation, compliance regulation and budgeting, Heidi and her team have one goal: maintain the best practices for patient safety and satisfaction.
As a child, Heidi looked up to her aunts who worked in the medical field. The idea of helping people maximize the quality of their lives made a big impression, and with her background in global management and insurance, bringing her administrative skills to Laser Spine Institute just felt right.
Heidi holds a Master of Business Administration in global management from Thunderbird School of Global Management, where she developed dynamic business skills, traveled the world and met her husband. Together, they still enjoy international travel to get a taste of the different foodie cultures across the globe.
Heidi also earned a Bachelor of Arts in international studies from the University of Wyoming and attended the Université Robert Schuman, an international school of business development in France. She is a Certified Professional in Healthcare Risk Management and is working toward her credential as a Certified Medical Practice Executive.
At the end of the day, Heidi’s proudest moment is being able to watch the magic of teamwork take shape in her team’s daily accomplishments. Her drive to motivate and unite her team members is boosted by each patient success story at Laser Spine Institute.
