Dallas, Texas, April 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Physical Rehabilitation Network (“PRN”), a leading US-based owner-operator of over 200 physical therapy clinics, and Medical City Healthcare, part of HCA Healthcare and one of the largest healthcare providers in North Texas, entered into a joint venture (JV) partnership to operate a network of 24 full-service outpatient physical therapy clinics throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The JV alignment will operate under PRN’s Texas-based affiliate brand and name, Vista Physical Therapy, the region’s third-largest outpatient physical therapy provider.

“We are excited and eager to align our leading, outcomes-driven care solutions with Medical City Healthcare’s unrivaled experience and resources to enhance the overall continuum of care for patients throughout the region,” said Ajay Gupta, CEO of PRN. “This new partnership expands our commitment to accessible, high-quality care at a lower cost for individuals and families, employers, and their employees. Our Vista network is one of the fastest expanding across our 17-state footprint with a reach that enables us to provide a broad and comprehensive range of treatments to our patients.”

The joint venture represents one of the region’s largest consolidations of comprehensive outpatient physical rehabilitation clinics, which provide a full range of programs and activities to address diverse patient population needs.

“Integrating PRN as part of our system of care provides greater access to the rehabilitation services our community needs, when and where they need it, close to home,” says Allen Harrison, president of Medical City Healthcare. “Expanding access to compassionate, high-quality rehabilitation through this partnership is another way we show our commitment to delivering exceptional care to patients at every step of their healthcare journey.”
