Once acquired, Santos says TheraStaff with retain its unique identity and brand but will begin to operate as a specialty division of Eastridge, now the 15th division of The Eastridge Group of Staffing Companies.
"TheraStaff has built a strong presence during the 15 years it's been staffing for patient rehab in California's health care industry," says Santos. "We look forward to expanding its presence nationally."
With its acquisition by Eastridge, TheraStaff gains well-established back-office systems and support to drive future growth in new markets, including those currently served by other Eastridge staffing divisions.

William Stone, founder of TheraStaff, stays on as president of the TheraStaff division and looks forward to the transition, saying the specialized focus on staffing for rehabilitation will greatly benefit the markets Eastridge serves.

He adds, "Eastridge and TheraStaff together will be a powerful match to provide the health care industry with the very best of those in demand."
