Company's Expansion Continues in the Atlantic Region Laying Groundwork for Rapid Growth

Blairsville, PA, November 3, 2016/- PHOENIX Rehabilitation and Health Services, Inc. ("PHOENIX") continues to expand its presence of outpatient physical therapy clinics in the Atlantic region through the recent acquisition of privately-held, Auburn, Alabama-based Aldridge Physical Therapy.

The acquisition will give the Company a foothold in a fourth Atlantic state with plans for expansion through strategic de novo development closely behind.  

"We warmly welcome Aldridge Physical Therapy to our PHOENIX team," comments David Watson, PT, President, and CEO of PHOENIX.  "Our decision to enter into this acquisition keeps us on track to fulfill our overall strategic goal of expansion outside of the Pennsylvania market.  Additionally, Aldridge Physical Therapy operates a reputable outpatient center, with patient loyalty comparable to that of the current PHOENIX facilities.  It's a great fit for our organization."

Pete Grabaskas, PT, Chief Operating Officer of PHOENIX states, "We are pleased to bring Randy Aldridge, PT, and his staff under the PHOENIX umbrella."  Grabaskas continues, "We feel Aldridge Physical Therapy is a strong cultural fit emphasizing excellent clinical care and customer service.  We are excited to add this practice in Alabama."

Aldridge Physical Therapy's founder, Randy Aldridge, PT, agrees.  "Our partnership with PHOENIX will provide us with the knowledge and resources for sustainable growth in our market and stability in the healthcare industry.  It is a winning combination for our patients, employees, and community."

Aldridge Physical Therapy, LLC intends to maintain its current brand until the transition to the trade name PHOENIX Rehabilitation and Health Services commences.
