The demand for comprehensive and convenient health care services increases every year. People want and need access to health care on their terms – without endless waiting in hospital emergency rooms or staggering bills.
Healthcare franchises have rapidly become a popular alternative to traditional means of seeking urgent care and primary care medical services, making healthcare franchises a $14.5 billion/year industry with a promising projected annual growth rate of 5.8% through 2018.
The United States public health care system is increasingly strained by factors such as a rapidly aging population, the rising costs of insurance, and an increasing percentage of the population without adequate health insurance or convenient access to medical care. Private healthcare franchises address these issues by creating an affordable and convenient healthcare option which patients can turn to without an appointment, a long wait, an unaffordable bill, or a lengthy commute.
