Our View on the Partnership Opportunity TODAY
U.S. Physical Therapy anticipates the demand for therapy services to grow as reimbursement policies and federal regulations increasingly favor cost-effective, outcome-oriented treatment. As challenging economic conditions drive consumers to carefully examine their healthcare expenditures, we believe outpatient rehabilitation practices will be well-positioned to thrive.
The private practice environment can be difficult: reimbursement issues, growth in physician-owned therapy services, staffing issues, and the cost and time of regulatory compliance all negatively impact profitability. Despite these and other challenges, we believe therapists with a great reputation and solid local relationships can leverage these personal qualities to develop businesses that meet the needs of their communities and provide a satisfying and rewarding career. Some will try alone; many would benefit from a partner.
The U.S. Physical Therapy model eliminates barriers to entry for new businesses. Our partners enjoy autonomy with the on-going benefit of a strong Houston-based support team so they can focus on the things that make them successful: taking good care of patients and meeting the needs of referral sources.
