Discover how Art Goetze (CEO of Scoop Health and Texas Rock Gym, and Co-Founder of a Fortune 500 Company) realized he had new a blind spot this month, and how he learned his best practices by acquiring over 200 companies and seeing their blind spots (14 minutes).
CEO BLINDSPOTS PODCAST GUEST: Art Goetze. Art is well known for the rollup company he co-founded, Encompass Services. The firm hit 3 big milestones in its first year: $1B in sales, a NYSE listing, and the Fortune 500. Over the next 3 years Art and his team acquired 220 companies, with 36,000 employees. So he decided to take some chips off the table and pursue other ventures.
Art’s first investment in healthcare changed the face of emergency medicine and led to an explosion of freestanding emergency rooms. As the CEO of Emergency Health Centers Art designed and delivered the first community based, non-hospital emergency centers in the US. The ER was so advanced and controversial that that he was forced to draft and pass the first ER licensing law in the US. Since that time average ER wait times in Texas have dropped from well over 24 hours to under 4 hours, saving countless lives (and then Art sold that company too).
Art is now the CEO of Scoop Health, where he (together with Dr. Tony Dale – Sedera Health) aim to disrupt the health insurance industry, and put customers back in charge with choices (lower health costs and higher quality of doctors).
In addition, Art still owns Texas Rock Gym, one of the largest indoor climbing centers in the US.
Note: Health insurance is one of the largest expenses for most businesses. In 2020, the Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangement (ICHRA) became available as a new health benefit alternative for employers.
