Businesses are like trees, if you’re not growing, you’re dying. I’ve always been very interested in expanding our clinic into another site, but the time restraints and knowhow were limitations. Partnering with Healthia brought 25+ years of expansions, growth and know how. Having a support team that has expanded a number of times allowed me to continue to run my business while the tricky negotiations with landlords and tedious applications with councils took place. Also knowing I have the backing of a tried and tested model with financial support to pursue this expansion has eased the burden of stress and given me the confidence this expansion will work no matter what. As a health practitioner, I wasn’t interested in all the bright shiny lights, bells and whistles. Practitioners want what is right by us, our staff and our patients. The way Healthia went about their negotiations was professional, sincere, and they took the time to get to know me and my team and were not just worried about my P&L. From the beginning I knew my business was going to be in the right hands moving forward, and to this day, I remain a proud clinic partner of the Healthia Limited group.
My career at Healthia has spanned across a decade, well before Healthia was formed, when we were still My FootDr Podiatry with only 11 clinics. The company has given me opportunity after opportunity over the years to evolve. Initially as a podiatry student, to a new graduate, then podiatrist at my current clinic, before becoming a Clinic Partner. As a Clinic Partner, Healthia has provided me with the opportunity to further my clinical and business knowlege with integrated programs, as well as ongoing support with management, marketing and finance, which have now allowed me to grow the clinic. Having a vested financial interest as a CCS has incentivised me to create goals, achieve them, and get rewarded for it.
