Through a joint venture, PRN will operate the Dallas-Fort Worth PT clinics under the name Vista Physical Therapy.

Physical Rehabilitation Network (PRN), a leading US-based owner-operator of over 200 physical therapy clinics, and Medical City Healthcare, part of HCA Healthcare and one of the largest healthcare providers in North Texas, entered into a joint venture (JV) partnership to operate a network of 24 full-service outpatient physical therapy clinics throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The JV alignment will operate under PRN’s Texas-based affiliate brand and name, Vista Physical Therapy, the region’s third-largest outpatient physical therapy provider.

“We are excited and eager to align our leading, outcomes-driven care solutions with Medical City Healthcare’s unrivaled experience and resources to enhance the overall continuum of care for patients throughout the region,” says Ajay Gupta, CEO of PRN. “This new partnership expands our commitment to accessible, high-quality care at a lower cost for individuals and families, employers, and their employees. Our Vista network is one of the fastest expanding across our 17-state footprint with a reach that enables us to provide a broad and comprehensive range of treatments to our patients.”

The joint venture represents one of the region’s largest consolidations of comprehensive outpatient physical rehabilitation clinics, which provide a full range of programs and activities to address diverse patient population needs. The clinics and treatment programs are supported by PRN’s leading physical therapy experts and offer a broad range of care solutions including pre- and post-surgery rehabilitation, occupational therapy, sports medicine rehabilitation, women’s health, hand therapy, balance training, ergonomics and workplace injury prevention, and more.

“Integrating PRN as part of our system of care provides greater access to the rehabilitation services our community needs, when and where they need it, close to home,” says Allen Harrison, president of Medical City Healthcare. “Expanding access to compassionate, high-quality rehabilitation through this partnership is another way we show our commitment to delivering exceptional care to patients at every step of their healthcare journey.”

The new PRN-Medical City Healthcare network of 24 clinics extends across North Texas, including locations in Allen, Anna, Plano, Richardson, Melissa, Mesquite, Little Elm, McKinney, Irving, Grapevine, Grand Prairie, Frisco, Flower Mound, as well as several in Dallas and Fort Worth.

Over the next three years, the joint venture is committed to broadening and expanding accessibility to integrated physical therapy care across the North Texas region with the goal of opening additional centers, according to the companies.

Medical City Healthcare is comprised of 16 hospitals, 12 ambulatory surgery centers, 4 off-campus emergency rooms, and 49 CareNow urgent care centers. Facilities feature inpatient and outpatient surgery, diagnostic and imaging centers, laboratories, and a wide range of specialty services.
