VANCOUVER, BC - (Marketwire - Jan 16, 2013) - A recent study commissioned by Nurse Next Door, a rapidly growing home care franchise system, shows that few companies can compete with Nurse Next Door's quality and breadth of service and responsiveness to clients -- even in an industry that seems highly competitive.
"Since Ken Sim and I founded Nurse Next Door in 2001, we've discovered most companies that self-classify as home care companies are small independents with limited resources, affiliates of corporate health care systems, or, in the United States, dependent on Medicaid and Medicare-reimbursed clients," said Nurse Next Door CEO John DeHart. "Only 17 percent of home care companies offer both medical and non-medical care, and no private care provider we know of has our level of franchise partner support or cheerful, life-affirming culture."
Last year, Nurse Next Door set out to prove the hypothesis with a survey in a mid-sized American market. The company chose Chattanooga, Tenn., with an MSA population of roughly 530,000, about 75,000 of them over 65. The results exceeded even Nurse Next Door's expectations:
"Our Care Services Platform ensures that someone in need can reach a Nurse Next Door representative 24/7, every week of every month of every year," DeHart said. "Our culture, which emphasizes celebrating life, sets us apart from every other home care company."
Nurse Next Door is one of North America's fastest growing home care providers, dedicated to delivering flexible, affordable and quality care options to seniors. Nurse Next Door has more than 60 locations across North America and is focused on becoming a globally admired brand.
