Confluent Health, Louisville, Ky, has acquired Motion PT Group (Motion), a physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy company with 59 clinic locations across Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, and New York.

“In 2015, Motion had a vision to provide transformative care to patients of all ages,” says Ed Miersch, CEO of Motion. “As we grew our company, we searched for clinical and administrative leaders who are passionate about quality patient care and the overall patient experience. We are excited to partner with the like-minded and highly successful team of the Confluent family of companies. Together, we will support our mission to deliver compassionate care and empower more patients to live their fullest lives.”

The companies say this partnership will allow Motion PT Group to continue providing patients with what is deemed the Motion experience, including their hallmark of 1:1 care. It will also allow the company to maintain its existing branding while gaining access to Confluent Health’s established ecosystem of management services as well as education and musculoskeletal health resources. 

Support services include efficient community outreach, digital innovations, value-based care pathway models, and marketing and finance tools. Resources include best in brand physical therapy partnerships, such as the PTPN network, as well as continuing education programs and staff development opportunities with Evidence in Motion, a nationally recognized residency, fellowship, and certification education provider in physical and occupational therapy programs.

“With their highly effective clinicians and scalable operational model, Motion is well-positioned to serve a rapidly growing population of musculoskeletal and chronic pain patients. We look forward to this alliance and its assurance of expanding together while treating an increase in patients that need our expertise,” says Confluent Health’s President and CEO Larry Benz, PT, DPT, FAPTA.

The acquisition of Motion PT Group brings Confluent Health’s national footprint to 609 private practice clinics in 35 states.
