“I looked at several home healthcare franchises and, honestly, it wasn’t even a close call as far as the standards that BrightStar Care has. The depth and breadth of the business line means we have five or six things you can do versus the very limited services the competitors have. We have everything from traditional home care to skilled services to temporary staffing. Once I understood all that BrightStar Care has to offer, including Joint Commission accreditation, I was sold. Coming out of the medical field, Joint Commission accreditation was a big deal to me. It has become a huge marketing tool for us.” Matt Hayes, 2015 Rookie of the Year and Customer Satisfaction Award winner and BrightStar Care Franchisee in Columbia, Missouri
