Innovative MedTech Subsidiary SarahCare Welcomes Monique M. Pizzute as Director of Franchise Support
BLUE ISLAND, Ill., May 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innovative MedTech, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC: IMTH), a provider of health and wellness services, announced today the appointment of Monique M. Pizzute as the Director of Franchise Support for the Company’s subsidiary, SarahCare Adult Day Services.
In this newly created position, Ms. Pizzute will serve as the first line of communications for franchise owners, track sales and census for each franchise owner to ensure mutually established goals are met and assist new franchise owners with the process of opening and developing new SarahCare locations worldwide. In addition, she will be overseeing the development and launch of new programs and ensuring that SarahCare franchises are in compliance with changes in state regulations for such facilities. Ms. Pizzute will report directly to SarahCare president, Dr. Merle Griff.
“Monique fills an important role as SarahCare continues along its rapid growth path. It is essential that we have a single liaison to coordinate with all of our franchisees in order to ensure regulatory compliance and adherence to our overall corporate policies. We are excited to welcome Monique as she will provide skills to help propel SarahCare to an expanded level of business operations,” said Dr. Griff. “The senior adult day services industry is rapidly growing as the U.S. is expected to need 2.3 million new healthcare workers to care for the aging population by 2025. At least 10,000 baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) will turn 65 every day until 2029, and this population is on track to outnumber children by 2035, according to the Census Bureau. As a result, a need remains to ensure that these adults are well cared for and SarahCare does a superior job offering these services in respectful and supportive environments. Additionally, generating the opportunity for entrepreneurs to realize their dream of a viable and well-supported business through our franchise opportunities.” Source: https://www.franchisedirect.com/information/home-and-senior-care-franchise-industry-report.
