Uniondale, NY (PRWEB) June 29, 2014
Professional Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy (“Professional”), a Great Point Partners I, L.P. (“GPP”) portfolio company, has acquired the 13 Sports Physical Therapy of New York’s (“SPTNY”) downstate locations. Through this acquisition, Professional will provide broader New York City and Queens coverage, as well as expand its services into Brooklyn, Rockland County and the Bronx.
“The SPTNY acquisition is one of the most exciting deals we’ve done to date,” said President, CEO & Founding Partner Adam Elberg. “With 13 additional locations, we’ll be able to provide patients and physicians with greater flexibility of choice for treatment sites, as well as an incredible amount of opportunities for employees. We’re looking forward to integrating SPTNY’s team into the Professional family, as we continue to provide the best care in the New York-Metropolitan area. Our priorities will always be excellent, individualized patient care and maintaining an environment where employees can thrive.”
When asked about the sale of SPTNY’s downstate clinics to Professional, Lynn Steenberg, owner of SPTNY said, “It was critically important for us to find a company that would continue to emphasize the family values we have created at Sports PT of NY. Because Sports PT will continue to service the upstate region of NY from Saratoga to Buffalo, it was important to divest our downstate business to a company that would provide the same support to the staff, patients, and medical community. Professional can provide that necessary support.”
With more than 30 years of experience in Physical Therapy in the New York-Metropolitan area, Professional’s Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations Don Demay was chosen to oversee the integration plan. “I’m excited to lead the incorporation of SPTNY’s downstate clinics into Professional,” said Demay. “As Professional continues to grow, we’re ensuring the best service for our patients, which is critical to our mission to provide the highest quality professional care that Physical Therapy has to offer.”
At the core of Professional’s growth is its commitment to meeting the needs of each patient. With the SPTNY downstate acquisition, Professional will be able to provide even more options to the communities in which it serves.
Through best-in-class treatment and protocols, Professional continues to recruit and train top-tier Physical Therapists, and scale its growing number of facilities throughout New York and New Jersey. With the addition of SPTNY’s downstate facilities, Professional now has 40 locations.
