EXTON, Pa., Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Physiotherapy Associates, a leading provider of outpatient rehabilitation services, today announced that its subsidiary, Rehab Associates LLC, has entered into a joint venture partnership with Jackson Hospital in Montgomery, AL, to deliver physical, occupational and rehabilitation services to Jackson Hospital patients. The partnership allows both groups to better meet the needs of patients in Montgomery and beyond.
"We are pleased to announce this new joint venture with Jackson Hospital," said Martin McGahan, Chief Executive Officer of Physiotherapy Associates. "Not only is this partnership critical to our success in the local market, it also demonstrates our ability to partner with premier institutions in other parts of the country to deliver superior outcomes and exceptional patient care."
Under the partnership, patients of Jackson Hospital will enjoy personalized care from an organization specializing in physical therapy. Outpatient rehabilitation services have relocated from the Therapy Annex of Jackson Hospital to the headquarters of Rehab Associates, a 6,000-square-foot facility that boasts a state-of-the-art aquatic center, isokinetic strengthening machines and the latest in rehab equipment. Inpatient care will continue to be delivered at the hospital, and patients should see no change in services.
"After a long relationship with Rehab Associates in sports medicine, Jackson Hospital is pleased about our new joint venture for physical therapy," said Joe Riley, Chief Executive Officer of Jackson Hospital. "Our patients will enjoy a new state-of-the-art facility on the hospital campus staffed by one of the area's leaders in rehabilitation services. We look forward to better meeting the needs of our patients together."
The joint venture agreement builds on the long-standing relationship between Rehab Associates and Jackson Hospital through the hospital's Sports Medicine Program. In May 2013 Rehab Associates, Jackson Hospital and Alabama Orthopaedic Specialists provided free physicals to 1,890 student athletes. The 23 athletic trainers at Rehab Associates cover approximately 1,850 sporting events and more than 3,000 practices every year at more than 40 schools in the tri-county area.
"This partnership gives us an opportunity to extend our quality care to a broader population," said Robert Kohn, Central Alabama Vice President of Rehab Associates.
