Patients of both AtlanticProCare and Saco Bay Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy will soon find it more convenient to receive care. The two companies will have space in the same building when Saco Bay opens a new office later this month in the Libby School Professional Building Space,where AtlanticProCare has been located for 20 years.

While the two organizations will have separate entrances and no shared space or systems, having both in the same building will be a boon to the amputee patients who visit both, for whom separate visits to separate locations can be an inconvenience. “While our patients are extremely mobile and many of them are as active as able-bodied people, having to visit two different locations still requires more time, planning and expense than if they could simply go to a different floor of the same building,” said JP Donovan, President and CEO of AtlanticProCare. “One of our core principles is to find ways to make care easier and more convenient for our patients, and having Saco Bay in this building will certainly do that for some of them.”

“We’re excited to be sharing space with such a like-minded organization,” said Lawrence Risigo, owner of Saco Bay Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy. “Saco Bay was born on the principles of exceptional patient care, talented and caring professionals and the latest in evidence-based clinical practice, all values that AtlanticProCare shares. This move will give our amputee patients who want it access to an organization with a very similar approach to care.”

AtlanticProCare and Saco Bay both place high value on measuring performance, as both companies emphasize outcome focused metrics that provide clear indicators of patient success. “Believe it or not, in 2019, some providers still don’t value this kind of measurement,” said Donovan, “but we always have, and it’s one of the reasons we’ve always had a good working relationship with the Physical Therapists at Saco Bay. A shared location is a great step forward in the post-acute care platform we envision that integrates independent PT and P&O around shared quality metrics and enhances the patient experience.”

Saco Bay opened their new office on October 21st and is currently scheduling for appointments in the new space.
