New business provides compassionate care for local residents
March 31, 2008 // Franchising.com // CHICAGO – BrightStar Healthcare, a full-service medical staffing and home healthcare agency, announces the expansion of its caregiving network to the Knoxville area. The company recently opened its newest location at 9041 Executive Park Drive, Suite 141 which will serve the residents of Knox, Loudon, Blount, Anderson and Sevier counties.
The expansion into this area is part of a national growth plan that calls for 400 new franchises and 40 corporate locations to open by the end of 2010. Currently, BrightStar has more than 42 offices operating across the United States.
"We are incredibly excited about our arrival in the Knoxville area," 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."
Joe Grubb is the latest franchisee for BrightStar Healthcare, which opened its doors to provide the local community with medical and non-medical services. Inspired by personal experience caring for his father, Grubb knew BrightStar was "what the doctor ordered" – an opportunity for him 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," said Grubb. "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 Tennessee's growing elderly population Grubb, a Certified Senior Advisor and proud member of the Tennessee Association for Home Care, expects that senior citizens will make up the majority of the franchise's private duty clientele. BrightStar Healthcare, licensed by the state of Tennessee as a Personal Support Services Agency, will also work with pediatric and workers' compensation cases, long-term care and Veteran clients, and provide flexible staffing to hospitals and nursing homes.
