Professional Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy (Professional), a Great Point Partners I, LP portfolio company, has acquired the 13 Sports Physical Therapy of New York’s (SPTNY) downstate locations. A news release from Professional indicates that through this acquisition, Professional will provide broader New York City and Queens coverage, as well as expand its services into the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Rockland County.

Adam Elberg, MS, PT, ATC, CSCS, president, founder, and CEO of Professional, states, “The SPTNY acquisition is one of the most exciting deals we’ve done to date. 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.”

The Professional news release notes that at the core of its growth is its commitment to meetings the needs of each patient. With the SPTNY downstate acquisition, Professional will be able to provide more options to the communities in which it serves.

Don Demay, Professional’s senior vice president of clinical operations, was chosen to oversee the integration plan. Demay states, “I’m excited to lead the incorporation of SPTNY’s downstate clinics into Professional. As Professional continues to grow, we’re ensuring the best service for our patients, which is critical to our mission.”

Lynn Steenberg, PT, ATC, owner of SPTNY, says, “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.”

Professional has a growing number of facilities throughout New York and New Jersey. With the addition of SPTNY’s downstate facilities, Professional now has 40 locations.
