South Jefferson Physical Therapy’s new home at 70 N. Main St. — roughly double the size of its old location — will provide much-needed space to serve patients.
The clinic, which relocated from Tops Friendly Markets plaza off Route 11 at the end of June, will host a grand reopening event from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at its new headquarters. Food and refreshments will be served.
Previously Lunman’s Furniture and Appliance Center, the 8,640-square-foot building was bought for $250,000 in May from David H. Lunman by Joel H. Grimshaw and Heather A. Miller, co-owners of the clinic, who both hold doctorates in physical therapy.
The clinic occupies about half of the massive building, while the other half is available for lease. Its newly renovated space includes a full-size gym with exercise equipment and five rooms for patients. Memberships are offered for $35 a month at the gym, which includes cardiovascular and weightlifting machines.
The clinic’s old space, by contrast, had three patient rooms and about half the amount of equipment, said Mr. Grimshaw, 41. That space, which opened in 2003, had limited the number of clients it could serve.
“Our business had grown the first five years after opening, and then it plateaued and has fluctuated,” said Mr. Grimshaw, a native of Henderson. “We would see between 140 to 160 visits total visits from patients a week, with some coming in multiple times. If we add another physical therapist here, I think we could go to the 160-to-190 range.” [Read more...]
