ProRehab Louisville, a Kentucky-based private physical therapy company, has announced in a recent news release that it is partnering with locally owned Apex Physical Therapy. According to the release, the merger allows ProRehab Louisville, which recently announced its own partnership with Physical Therapy (PT) Plus, to provide quality physical therapy services to residents from a total of eight locations across Louisville. The partnership is slated to close in 30 days.

Patrick Meyers, PT, DPT, PCS, MS, COMT, Apex Physical Therapy CEO, and managing partners Nicholas Austin, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, and Brad Conder, PT, DPT, OCS, will remain integrally involved, as will staff members at each location, the release states. Their four locations, located in Middletown, Hillview, LaGrange, and on River Road, will move to a combined brand with ProRehab Louisville.

Larry Benz, PT, DPT, OCS, MBA, ProRehab Principal, states in the release that there is a long-standing history and collaboration between the four professionals.

“For over 10 years now, Apex has been providing quality specialty physical therapy care to Louisville.
