Leading physiotherapy provider Northcare Physio has become one of the largest in South Australia with the acquisition of Adelaide-based Physio Direct.
The five Physio Direct clinics at Malvern, Morphettville, Prospect, Salisbury and Wayville joined Northcare Physio as of May 1. They extend the network of Northcare Physio clinics to eleven, with SA clinics located in Salisbury Plain, Elizabeth, Golden Grove and Mount Gambier and interstate clinics in Melbourne and Cairns.
Operations manager Glen Kocher said it was particularly pleasing that all employees from Physio Direct had agreed to take up employment with Northcare Physio.
“This means existing Physio Direct clients can continue with their same trusted physiotherapist at their local clinic,” he said.
“Physio Direct has provided high quality physiotherapy services for over 20 years, and is an excellent strategic fit for Northcare Physio’s national expansion plans”.
“It will be business as usual at all clinics for our experienced and qualified staff who will continue to provide a range of services including physiotherapy, massage therapy, hydrotherapy, rehabilitation, clinical pilates and pre and postal natal care.”
Mr Kocher said the clinics would be rebranded as Northcare Physio in the coming months, and will offer extended hours and same day appointments to meet the needs of patients with acute injuries and conditions.
Northcare Physio was established in 1991 in Adelaide’s northern suburbs as a sports injury and rehabilitation centre with a focus on high quality care, and continues to build its reputation as a leader in physiotherapy.
