Representatives from HealthPRO® Rehabilitation and Heritage Healthcare report continued growth and success during the 7 months since their merger.
Solidified management teams have strengthened customer relationships and led to new accounts. The combined company now provides contract therapy services at more than 470 skilled nursing facilities, continuing care retirement communities, assisted and independent living communities, with recent diversification into hospitals, schools, home health, and outpatient clinics. It spans 24 states and Washington, D.C., while employing more than 5,600 associates. The combined entity continues to be one of the largest independent therapy providers in the profession.
The merger has successfully enabled the combined company to expand the breadth of services they provide and create economies of scale that better position them for the challenges facing the post-acute care industry in years to come. Their strategic approach and healthcare reform expertise ensures their clients are well positioned for both today’s environment and what lies ahead. A few of the specific ways clients benefit are:
• A proven clinical model
• Unmatched compliance depth of experience
• Healthcare reform expertise and targeted programming
• Broad clinical reimbursement knowledge
In today’s high-risk audit environment, they promote operational integrity through an intense, proactive approach to compliance. The companies share a common vision of resident-centered care, excellent clinical programs, ethical business practices, strategic customer partnerships, and strong employee relations. Their complementary geographic concentration has created a powerful presence throughout the East Coast, Midwest, Southeast and Southwest regions.
“In the seven months since our merger, we’ve become stronger as a company. Our proven clinical models have produced sustainable, positive bottom line results for our clients while enhancing compliance,” said CEO John Heller. President Paul Shaw added, “We strive to be the premier rehabilitation company through exceptional clinical outcomes, advanced technology solutions, superior management methods and extraordinary customer service.”
