Lifecare later merged with Foundation Healthcare to form IPN after listing on the Australian Stock Exchange and it was here that some very valuable lessons were learned. Years of corporate management, strategic planning and the principle of relationship marketing and business development became a priority. Private practice is about managing client relationships and practitioners like Health Networks Australia achieved, so in 2006 they brought back Lifecare from IPN.
Health Networks Australia and Lifecare now operate as one business, with 300 allied health professionals including physiotherapists and 40 practices across the country. Lifecare is partly owned and totally operated by a management team who know how to run allied health private practices correctly. We are still growing in areas of health care including multi-disciplinary sports medicine, health and wellbeing programs, evidence-based practice clinic and research programs, compensable injuries and pain management services. The Lifecare future is looking bright and we continue to help make your health shine.
