  • Your Customized Guide to Physical Therapy Practice

    Knowing how to start an occupational therapy private practice - or starting a physical therapy clinic - is well beyond the scope of therapist training. Integra has successfully launched occupational and physical therapy start-up clinics utilizing a variety of ownership structures.

    As a prospective owner, you may be a practicing therapist who understands quality treatment protocols for your patients, but you may not have a robust understanding of all the requirements of running a profitable business. You may be a corporate or independent owner who grasps basic business concepts but you may not understand the various requirements of managing a rehabilitation practice. This is where Integra provides a solution.

    We have launched and operated rehabilitation clinics in numerous states. Integra focuses on issues large and small utilizing our detailed and comprehensive Gantt chart to map “next steps” in an orderly fashion and to ensure we remain on schedule and under budget. The Integra team works hand in hand with you, combining our business expertise with your healthcare vision to create a highly profitable practice to serve your patients and community.

  • Comprehensive Physical Therapy Start-up Support

    Opening a new practice can be quite intimidating, even for an individual or corporate entity that comprehends fundamental business concepts. A rehabilitation practice is a unique business, as it blends quality patient protocols with industry-specific business practices to ensure a productive and profitable practice.

    Referral sources

    Your first, most crucial step is to ensure your practice will have reliable referral sources. This will be your clinic's lifeblood, and you should not proceed without it. Integra can help you determine exactly how many referrals and of what type specific to your practice will make you profitable. If you are weak in the area of referral sources, our team can also help you solidify this.
