New location to serve Franklin County; Business provides compassionate care for local residents[/b2]
March 27, 2008 // Franchising.com // CHICAGO – BrightStar Healthcare, a full-service healthcare staffing agency, announces the expansion of its caregiving network and the opening of newest location at 2000 West Henderson Road, Suite 330. BrightStar Healthcare of Columbus will serve the residents of Franklin County.
The expansion into Columbus is part of a national growth plan that calls for 400 new franchises and seven corporate locations by the end of 2010. Since launching the company's franchise operations in August 2005, BrightStar Healthcare has opened and/or signed 42 locations in various markets throughout the United States.
"We are incredibly excited about our arrival in Columbus," said Shelly Sun, founder and president of BrightStar Healthcare. "As specialists in the rapidly growing healthcare industry, we empower our owners to live our values and provide compassionate care and service, anytime, any place."
With health care spending in the United States projected to reach nearly $3 trillion by 2009*, BrightStar Healthcare is answering the call for high-quality care. Inspired by a family experience, BrightStar Healthcare is a full-service healthcare staffing agency that specializes in providing medical and non-medical homecare to private clients within their homes, as well as supplemental healthcare staff to corporate clients such as hospitals and nursing homes.
Jeff Russell is the latest franchisees for BrightStar Healthcare, which opened its doors to provide the local community with medical and non-medical services. Jeff has worked in corporate leadership roles for over 25 years and recently became a causality of corporate "downsizing". Focusing on a career path that shared Jeff and his wife, Mary's value and morals of helping others and dealing with a personal experience of finding quality healthcare services for Mary's mother, the Russell's knew BrightStar was "what the doctor ordered" – an opportunity for them to provide reliable and trustworthy caregivers to all in need.
"Families expect support from someone who can not only provide a higher and more knowledgeable level of care, but also answer questions and help lower anxiety," Jeff said. "Our services allow clients to remain in the comfort of their own homes and offer peace of mind to family members who can be confident that their loved ones are receiving the care and attention they need and deserve."
With Ohio's growing elderly population, Jeff expects that senior citizens will make up the majority of the franchise's private duty clientele. BrightStar Healthcare will also work with pediatric and workers' compensation cases, long-term care and Veteran clients, and provide flexible staffing to hospitals and nursing homes.
