Officials of ProCare Physical Therapy, headquartered in Hollidaysburg, will announce this morning they have entered into a partnership with U.S. Physical Therapy Inc., a national provider of outpatient physical therapy services.
ProCare owns and operates 10 clinics in the central Pennsylvania region. ProCare has established itself as a provider of care to local athletes, having strong relationships with local high schools and sports medicine physicians.
The clinics serve patients in Blair, Bedford, Centre, Clearfield and Huntingdon counties.
Houston, Texas-based U.S. Physical Therapy is the nation's third largest provider of physical therapy services, with more than 430 locations in 43 states, and has been recognized by Forbes as one of the "Best Small Companies" in the country.
U.S. Physical Therapy President and CEO Chris Reading is an Altoona native.
ProCare President Jim Foreman is excited about the new partnership.
"The quickly changing landscape of health care throughout the country has created some very unique opportunities. We can now collaborate with our new partner to bring even better physical therapy programming to our region," Foreman said in a statement. "Our partnership with U.S. Physical Therapy will strengthen our position as a provider of physical therapy in central Pennsylvania, allowing our clinic and staff to better serve the needs of local residents, which will provide an overall benefit to the region."
