Starting a pain program/clinic...

Traffic on here looks incredibly low and slow, but I remember some great members offering great advice when I used to frequent this site.  I am now at a very rural hospital working solo, and I see a tremendous community need for a pain clinic here.  I mentioned the possibility to my CEO, and he is excited and interested in exploring the possibilities.  This town is tiny and isolated, thus it will never attract an established pain doc, so this will be an endeavor that will be built here from the ground up.  My employer is willing to get me coverage and pay for the necessary training for me to operate this clinic.  That said, I know next to nothing about the logistics of starting such a clinic and getting it up and running.  I'm hoping to hear from as many CRNAs as possible that operate in this capacity to find out exactly what their contracts look like, what their start up looked like (if opening a new clinic/service from scratch), any pitfalls they ran into and wish they had known to avoid etc.  If you have any experience in this or know someone who does and wouldn't mind putting me in contact with them, please let me know.  Thanks in advance.
