Physical Rehabilitation Network LLC (PRN), a privately held physical therapy company based in Carlsbad, California, and MemorialCare, a nonprofit Southern California integrated health system with more than 200 care locations, announce that they will co-operate their outpatient physical therapy centers.
Under the agreement, MemorialCare will partner with PRN’s local physical therapy centers under the flagship brand, California Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy (Cal Rehab). Cal Rehab is the second largest physical therapy provider in Los Angeles & Orange County, California.
This joint venture will create a community-based network of 17 full-service physical therapy (PT) centers that span across Southern Los Angeles County and all of Orange County, with the capacity to support over 300,000 PT visits and over 40,000 patients a year – from young children to adults, a media release from PRN reports.
“PRN is extremely pleased to partner with MemorialCare, a nationally respected health system, to offer needed preventive care and treatment services throughout Southern California. Our mutual goal is to relentlessly pursue and implement strategies and innovations focused on providing patients with the most advanced, compassionate service and support that benefits our communities to make a positive difference in patient outcomes.”
— Ajay Gupta, CEO, Physical Rehabilitation Network
Over the next 2 years, this joint venture will expand their assets by opening an additional 10 centers with the goal of continuing to offer access to physical therapy services across Southern LA and Orange County, the release continues.
“MemorialCare has a long history of partnering with innovative organizations that share our vision of delivering best practice medicine, improving population health and creating the highest value in the changing health care environment. This new venture expands our commitment to accessible, high-quality care at a lower cost for individuals and families, health plans, employers and their employees—all benefiting from access to a large, full-service network that provides important continuity of care and a better patient experience.”
