We’ve got your back

We acquire, invest in, and partner with well-established outpatient physical therapy clinics in the greater Midwest.

Partnership Opportunities

Thrive Physical Therapy Partners understands it is a once in a lifetime decision to sell your practice. We strive to make this an enjoyable experience by taking a tailored and flexible approach to meet all of your needs.


What It Means to Partner

Thrive acquires and affiliates with well-established physical therapy clinics and supports these partner practices with the non-clinical administrative business challenges they face by providing industry proven administrative support services.

Physical Therapist First

We bet on you. To get there, we need to have a deep understanding of who you are, what matters to you, and what your challenges and goals are. We hold a series of conversations with you to get to know you and the practice you have worked so hard to build. This deeply collaborative approach is necessary to structure a custom tailored partnership.

Flexible Structures

Above all, we look for physical therapists who share our values. We want to work with dedicated physical therapists and staff who believe in striving for high quality patient outcomes and service their local community in a truly exceptional way. We partner with clinics of all sizes. Often times, our partner is looking to gain exceptional help in non-clinical roles. Other times, a partner will seek a full transition and exit plan from their clinic. Whatever the cause, our flexibility in partner structures is key in preserving and extending your legacy.

Partnership Benefits

Benefits of a partnership are as deep as they are wide. By lifting the burden of many non-clinical demands, you and your team are able to focus on being the absolute best clinicians you can. This is an immense benefit to the well-being of the team, and to the patients you treat every day. It allows you to take advantage of increased work flexibility, attractive compensation arrangements, and broader community outreach planning.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does your affiliation process work?

There are multiple steps to the process. We typically start by executing a confidentiality agreement and exchanging relevant information which will allow us to better understand your clinic. We spend significant time upfront getting to know you and your clinic as this process helps us understand your unique situation and allows us to develop a transaction structure that fits your needs.

Will I maintain my local branding and identity?

Yes. All of our acquired clinics maintain their local identity and branding. Our team is willing to work with you to enhance your local brand and to expand participation in your community.

What should I expect to change following a transition?

We work collaboratively with our partner physical therapists to help relieve the stresses of running and managing a practice on a day-to-day basis. Partner PTs are able to spend a greater amount of their time and attention on delivering exceptional clinical outcomes while Thrive Physical Therapy Partners works to support the non-clinical activities that our partners need our help with.

What is my role after the sale/post-closing?

We’re flexible with how we build our partnership with your clinic. Your operational role can vary based on your own personal and professional goals and objectives. Some partners choose to be clinic directors or treating therapists, while others pursue leadership roles within the company. We’ll work with you and your team to ensure our partnership provides opportunities that fit your personal objectives.

What type of clinics do you partner with?

We partner with clinics of all sizes and would welcome a conversation with you to determine if your practice may be a fit with our organization.
