Kare Plus, the UK’s most established multi-service healthcare franchise, has reached the finals in two Midland’s Business Awards categories; Service Provider of the Year (£1m+) and Entrepreneur of the Year.
Already winning similar categories at this year’s Best Business Awards, Kare Plus was one of the highest scoring entrants in both categories following interviews with a panel of experts establishing the operations, growth and successes of the company - with a particular focus on contribution to the Midlands’ economy.
With a nationwide network of over 70 branches, Kare Plus’ healthcare service range includes specialist and non-specialist nursing, supported living services, critical care services, home care and more; all of which has been developed by CEO, Entrepreneur of the Year finalist and Black Country born-and-bred, Steve Welsh.
With significant growth during the last six years, Mr Welsh said: “Starting out as a franchise owner, I have the benefit of knowing the support and planning that franchise owners require – which I think is a big part to our success.
Kare Plus being nominated for Service Provider of the Year is testament to the organisation’s multi-service offering and strong, bespoke compliance procedures that keep all franchise owners and customers safe. The Entrepreneur of the Year Award nomination is a bonus and great honour.
Looking ahead, I look forward to developing the Kare Plus service range even further and aiming to reach the next milestone of two million hours in the coming months and years.”
The Midlands Business Awards are now recognised as one of the most prestigious Business Awards in the Midlands Region.
