EL PASO, TX--(Marketwired - June 10, 2014) - Agility Health Inc. (TSX VENTURE: AHI) partner, Border Therapy Services (BTS), a leading provider of physical therapy services in the greater El Paso, Texas area, today announced the opening of a new clinic on the far east side of the city to better serve their patient population.
"This is our fourth location in El Paso," said Wayne Shaw, BTS director of operations. "The far east side is a quickly growing area. We've been watching it and we saw a demand for the services we provide, so we decided it was time to help out and open a closer, more convenient location for residents."
The new location on Edgemere Blvd. opened its doors in April and is already exceeding expectations in patient traffic volumes, with as many as 90 visits per week.
"There's a large military population in the area and having our services nearby has proved to be beneficial for that market," said Shaw. "We also see everything from sports injuries, such as ACL reconstructions and rotator cuff problems, to general knee and back issues. Our therapists can essentially handle any type of orthopedic injury."
A partner of the national Agility Health physical therapy network, BTS has the largest outpatient physical therapy staff in El Paso with 15 licensed therapists, three physical therapy assistants (PTAs) and two athletic trainers. Between all existing clinics, BTS sees approximately 750 to 800 patients each week. All BTS locations offer free screenings and consultations.
BTS is involved in the community, covering the area's junior hockey team, the El Paso Rhinos, and providing services for sports programs at El Paso Community College.
