August 05, 2008 // Franchising.com // CHICAGO – BrightStar Healthcare, a full-service home healthcare and medical staffing agency, announces the expansion of its caregiving network and opening of its newest location at 1112 S. Washington St. Suite 15, Naperville, IL. BrightStar of Naperville will serve the residents of DuPage County.
The expansion into DuPage County 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 more than 45 locations in various markets throughout the United States.
"We are incredibly excited about our arrival in Naperville 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. While senior citizens make up the majority of the company's private duty clientele, BrightStar Healthcare also works with pediatric and worker compensation cases, long term care and Veteran clients, as well as private trust and public guardian payers. BrightStar Healthcare is also active in school nursing programs, retail health clinics and provides day care services.
Owner and operator of the Naperville location, Lidia Kolarikova is the latest franchisees for BrightStar Healthcare. Driven by ambition from the very start, Kolarikova moved to the US in 1996 with only $300, not knowing a single person and not speaking a word of English. Overcoming the hardships, working various jobs and learning English, Kolarikova knew that becoming a franchise owner would give her more flexibility and empower her to live her life better. "BrightStar is a wonderful business model with the right values and big potential for expansion and growth", adds Kolarikova.
She also knew BrightStar Healthcare franchising provided her the means to provide professional, accountable 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 reduce anxiety," Kolarikova 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."
