Bloom Healthcare was founded out of pure passion for helping people. The NDIS is a world leading scheme and it provides a platform for a number of services, to help and support people with disability. The vision of the business is to help and support people with disability through delivering evidence based practice. Bloom Healthcare was built from the foundations up, through strong clinical governance and hiring a team of highly experienced clinicians.
This simple yet extremely important approach to our business model has resonated with support coordinators, our employees and the participants themselves. Our growth has been testament to that, having grown from two clinicians in April 2021 to over 80 in less than two years. Most importantly though, is that this has been sustainable with annualised staff retention being 88%.
Sam Smith is an Exercise Physiologist who has been in the Occupational Rehabilitation/ Injury Management sector for approximately 15 years as well as more recently having 4 years experience within the disability sector.
Sam founded Bloom Healthcare in April of 2021, since which time it has grown from a small business of 2 people, to that of a multi-disciplinary team of 80 across 5 states within Australia. Sam is a respected leader within his field and has a passion for helping his staff learn, grow and develop. Sam is innately driving by helping people from all demographic backgrounds, hence formed the vision of Bloom Healthcare.
The fundamental goal is to be a provider of choice through having a clinically robust foundation to allow staff apply their trade to provide the best opportunity to achieve the desired outcome.
