What every Medical Spa owner should know
Since its advent in the late 1980s, the Medical Spa community has grown from a cottage industry to one that generates in excess of $12 billion in annual revenue. In the last decade alone, the number of Medical Spas in the United States has grown from 5,700 to 19,900, an explosive 349-percent growth. Available data suggests that the large majority of these Medical Spas treat between 100 and 200 patients a month, averaging between $10,000 and $100,000 in monthly income.
While some may associate it with simple facials and massage therapy, the truth is that today’s Medical Spa is more akin to outpatient surgery and urgent care centers, a standalone medical program run under the strict supervision of a licensed healthcare professional, combining traditional and alternative medicine with spa treatments. As Americans increasingly embrace preventative healthcare, healthy lifestyles, anti-aging practices and overall fitness, the Medical Spa industry’s growth is expected to continue.
Of course, as the Medical Spa industry’s patient population grows, so do its risk exposures. This is why it is more important than ever that Medical Spas do their due diligence when shopping for medical professional liability. Our team of medical liability specialists can help you navigate the following policies for your Medical Spa facility:
