Physical Rehabilitation Network (PRN) announced the grand opening of its first-ever physical therapy clinic in Norwalk, California. The opening marks the 32nd clinic in PRN’s joint venture partnership with MemorialCare, a prominent nonprofit Southern California integrated health system. The Norwalk clinic will operate under PRN’s network brand, California Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy (Cal Rehab).
“Our collaboration with joint venture partner MemorialCare continues to make leading physical therapy care accessible to more people,” said Ajay Gupta, CEO, PRN. “At this new Cal Rehab clinic in Norwalk, our experienced clinical team will receive guidance and support from our trusted clinic director, Nelson Guiang.”
Dr. Guiang, PT, DPT, C-PS, will lead the day-to-day operations of the facility as the clinic director. He received a bachelor’s degree from Long Beach State before attending Chapman University to pursue a Doctorate of Physical Therapy. He has vast experience in an outpatient orthopedic setting, working with all levels of athletes and specializing in Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ).
“More clinics means more access and opportunity for MemorialCare to deliver a better experience and a better continuity of care—at a reduced cost—to patients across the Southern California region,” says Mark Schafer, M.D., CEO of MemorialCare Medical Foundation, which includes MemorialCare Medical Group and Greater Newport Physicians. “PRN’s network of physical therapy clinics is one of the fastest expanding in the country, with a reach that enables us to provide patients a comprehensive range of treatments.”
The Cal Rehab – Norwalk physical therapy clinic welcomes patients of all ages, offering a wide range of pain management, post-surgery rehabilitation, and injury prevention services, including sports medicine, ergonomic solutions, and more.
