SEARHC Announces Physical Therapy Services Expansion with the Acquisition of Juneau Physical Therapy

JUNEAU, Alaska – SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) is committed to its 2024 strategic goal of being a provider of choice. As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the patient experience and provide the best healthcare for our communities, SEARHC is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Juneau Physical Therapy (JPT) to become part of SEARHC. The transaction is expected to close on March 15, 2024.

Specializing in workplace, sports and orthopedic injuries and conditions, Juneau Physical Therapy has a long history of providing excellent, comprehensive rehabilitation services to the Juneau community. SEARHC believes the addition of this team will expand the orthopedic, sports medicine and wellness opportunities available to our patients.

“Our goal has always been to restore one’s active lifestyle and optimal health. Our integration into SEARHC allows us to continue building on our history and that goal, expanding high-quality services to our community and patients,” said Justin Dorn, PT, DPT, owner of Juneau Physical Therapy. “I am particularly excited that all our patients and their families can benefit from the broad range of healthcare services available through SEARHC, beyond physical therapy.”

SEARHC is committed to ensuring that appropriate high-quality physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech language pathology services remain available in the Juneau area, while promoting a healthy balance of mind, body and spirit.

“Bringing this private practice into the SEARHC network allows us to expand our services and provide the best healthcare for our communities,” said William Spivey, PT, System Director of Rehabilitation Services. “We look forward to Juneau Physical Therapy joining the SEARHC team and furthering our ability to provide high-quality services and help people live their best lives.”

While SEARHC and JPT work though the necessary administrative items associated with such a transaction, it is JPT’s and SEARHC’s mutual intention that providers from Juneau Physical Therapy will begin seeing patients as employees of SEARHC effective March 18, 2024 and delivering the same exemplary care at SEARHC’s Juneau Physical Rehabilitation Clinic, located at 1720 Crest Street, in the Mendenhall Valley.
