BrightStar Care franchisees are dedicated to delivering exceptional, high-quality care, which makes a significant difference in the lives of families within their communities. This opportunity offers franchisees to be more than just business owners, but leaders within their community.
Divya Bhagat is a new BrightStar Care franchisee who shares this commitment to make a difference in her community. Her path to franchise ownership is a journey woven from diverse experiences, rooted in a deep-seated passion for compassionate care.
Embarking on Entrepreneurship
Divya started working at a large hospital in North Carolina in college, as an intern which progressed into a role in hospital administration. Her department focused on patient satisfaction and providing leadership training to keep care patient-centric. However, she yearned for more profound connections and impactful avenues, which inspired her to embark on a quest for a more meaningful career with a larger role.
"When I worked in healthcare, I found that building relationships with patients was essential to me," she states. Divya then worked in real estate successfully for 7 years and even now still continues to dabble in it, however, real estate became turbulent during the pandemic, and she had always missed the feeling of working in healthcare. This led her to start searching for business ownership roles in the hospital and healthcare industries.
During her search, Divya sought the best, most reputable healthcare franchise that aimed for the highest standard. "I wanted to be associated with the #1 healthcare company,” she states. “In my mind, what was the 'Apple brand' of home healthcare—reputed, patient-centric, and nurse-led.” This led her to BrightStar Care, where she was impressed by our higher standard of quality care, Joint Commission Accreditation, dedication to our franchisees, and reputation within the healthcare industry. "That unparalleled support and dedication to their franchisees, along with the patient-centered approach deeply resonates with my values," Divya emphasizes.
A Dedication to Serving Others
Venturing into franchise ownership signifies the genesis of Divya's journey. She is passionate about helping others and the opportunity to build a meaningful business. "Being a franchisee with BrightStar Care is exciting because I get to create something I can build on,” she states. “This is a great cause to help others, I want my two sons to see that and see that their mom and dad work hard, and hard work can be so fulfilling.”
Support and Community at BrightStar Care
The mentorship among franchisees and the robust support system at BrightStar Care propels Divya forward throughout her journey. Her emphasis on assembling the right team and drawing strength from our supportive network of franchisees at BrightStar Care promises a rewarding journey ahead. For Divya, forging connections and aiding fellow franchisees holds immense value, providing reassurance and inspiration as she begins her franchise journey.
"The prospect of forging connections within my network and aiding others embarking on similar paths exhilarates me," Divya beams. "Knowing that support exists and hearing stories from other franchisees gives me the confidence to move forward. I know I’m not alone on this new journey.”
A Journey Defined by Purpose
Divya is excited to start making a difference within her community. She aspires to specialize in elder care—a cause deeply ingrained in her values. "Caring for elders is pivotal; it's a passion instilled in me by my family," she shares. Divya aims to open her franchise in East Orlando and Lake Nona this spring and establish a haven for compassionate and dignified care, fostering a community-centric environment within her community.
