The Joint Corp. Opens 10 New Healthcare Franchises in May
Franchisor continues its leadership in chiropractic care
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (June 16, 2014) - May 2014 was a banner period for The Joint Corp., a national franchisor that is transforming chiropractic care, as the company today announced that 10 new clinics opened during the month. The Joint Corp., which now has more than 200 clinics open across the U.S., has established itself as the leader in chiropractic care by creating a consumer-friendly approach that removes the insurance hassles, cost concerns and long wait times for appointments normally associated with healthcare.
The newest clinics of The Joint…the chiropractic place® are located in:
- Albany, New York
- Austin, Texas
- Brentwood, California
- Fort Mill, South Carolina
- Lubbock, Texas
- Lynnwood, Washington
- Middletown, New Jersey
- San Antonio, Texas
- San Diego, California
- Spartanburg, South Carolina
"Opening 10 new clinics in a single month is an outstanding accomplishment," said David Orwasher, president and chief operating officer at The Joint Corp. "It sets a new high-water mark for the company and what's exciting is that we view this as more of a baseline. We have ambitious plans for expansion, and intend to continue growing at an exponential rate in the future."
Continuing A Trend
The 10 new openings continue a trend established in 2013, when The Joint Corp. opened 96 new clinics and awarded 100 new franchise licenses. The Joint will perform nearly two million spinal adjustments this year across 200+ clinics nationwide.
According to Orwasher, The Joint Corp.'s rapid growth trajectory is the result of a business model that places patient needs first and ahead of those of providers or insurers.
"Today's consumers don't want to wait weeks or days for an expensive appointment, and then have to worry whether insurance will cover it. They want quality affordable healthcare, on their schedule at their convenience," Orwasher said. "That is what The Joint delivers. Many of our franchisees have started out as satisfied patients. Once they experience first-hand how we're truly changing healthcare they realize what a great investment our clinics are."
Among the ways The Joint Corp.'s patient-first approach is transforming healthcare are:
- Personalized treatment plans with a focus on ongoing wellness
- No appointments required; patients can walk in for treatment anytime the clinic is open, including evenings and weekends
- Convenient locations in popular retail areas rather than out-of-the way medical complexes
- No insurance hassles
- Affordable packages & plans, including a $49/month plan that includes up to four visits (a cost significantly lower than the average insurance co-pay for a single visit)
- Ability to receive treatment at any of The Joint clinics across the country
"Part of what makes our model so attractive to franchisees is the relatively low initial cost, a simple operating model, and more importantly providing a valuable, high-demand service that can help people in your community live healthier, more active and pain-free lives," said Orwasher. "It's an ideal investment on many levels."
