RV Partners with Oklahoma Practice
As part of our acquisition effort, RehabVisions and Total Rehab have formed a partnership to provide management and support to Total Rehab’s two existing Outpatient Clinics this past May. Total Rehab, with locations in McAlester and Antlers, Oklahoma, was founded by Margaret Bates, OT and Michele Cox, PT.
The two therapists started the business in 2005 after working in the same school together. They have built it to employ 31 therapists and staff and have recently moved to a new outpatient clinic site in McAlester.
They learned about RehabVisions from a print ad in Impact Magazine, a publication by the Private Practice Section of the American Physical Therapy Association. They needed help with the business side of their therapy practice and liked what they saw in RehabVisions. “We were busy therapists growing our business and serving patients in our community and less focused on managing our back office,” Michele said. “We knew we needed help and after talking to Darrell (CFO Darrell Metcalf), we thought this was a great solution.”
Although the partnership is relatively new, RehabVisions has been able to help Total Rehab with some of its processes. We have assisted them in the training and utilization of the Raintree software and helped to get their balance sheets in order for monthly reporting. We also set them up on a server so they are now able to share files and information.
Next steps are to help them streamline their marketing efforts and then get into the operations side of the business.
CFO Darrell Metcalf, who has led the partnership with Total Rehab, said they represent one of the ideal opportunities for RV—entrepreneurs who are interested in growing their business but who are more interested in the patient care aspect than the back office.
“In their situation, we have been able to bring scale and experience to management and analysis of the operation while they have continued to pursue adding the best therapists in their market and identifying customers who share their values and philosophy on healthcare,” Darrell said.
RV Managers can look forward to meeting Margaret and/or Michele at the next Managers Meeting.
