Next Health, a leader in health optimisation and longevity services, is poised to expand into the Australian market.
A pioneer in wellness solutions in the United States, Next Health Australia is undertaking an expansion with 20 new locations within the next six years. This growth is enabled by a master franchise agreement, with the Australian team led by Dr. Kelly Francis as the Chief Medical Officer. Margie Baldock, CEO of Next Health Australia and an experienced biohacker for 20 years, collaborates with Graham Staerk, who brings 40 years of expertise in political campaigning, corporate lobbying, and public relations, to oversee public relations and marketing.
The team boasts extensive experience in medical, property, marketing, and government relations. The first Next Health centre is expected to open in 2024, signifying a major shift in the Australian wellness industry.
Scott Svilich, the COO of Next Health, who has significant experience in scaling franchises, is driving this expansion. He commented: “I’m thrilled that we’ve found the ideal operating partners who also share our core values and mission to bring Next Health to Australia. With their dedication and aligned mission, I’m confident that our collaboration will be a great success. We look forward to introducing Next Health’s pioneering longevity services to 20 key Australian markets.”
Next Health’s surge in the longevity market is partially attributed to its vibrant, modern facilities, which transform the conventional healthcare experience. These facilities integrate wellness with contemporary design, offering a data-driven approach to health and a suite of advanced medical services. The uniqueness of Next Health lies in its membership-based model and proprietary customer journey, contributing significantly to its economic performance.
Next Health Founders, Dr. Darshan Shah (CEO) and Kevin Peake (President), shared their thoughts on the Australian expansion, saying, “People globally are placing an unprecedented emphasis on their overall health well-being. Our Australian partners recognise this burgeoning demand for diagnostic and preventative health solutions, and we’re thrilled to introduce our best-in-class approach and technologies to Australia, marking a new era in wellness and longevity. Witnessing the life-changing results in the United States has been immensely rewarding. We’re dedicated to helping individuals achieve their optimal health and well-being, and we’re confident that our expansion into Australia will bring about remarkable changes in the lives of many.”
The influence of Next Health is further validated by support from renowned figures like Orlando Bloom, a long-term client who has recently become an investor. This demonstrates the profound impact Next Health has had and its increasing prominence.
The first Next Health Australia location is slated for opening in 2024, with key retail sites under consideration, including the Gold Coast and Sydney.
