FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BRIGHT SPRING HEALTH SERVICES ACQUIRES PATE REHABILITATION
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 18, 2021) – BrightSpring Health Services completed the acquisition of Pate Rehabilitation today.
Pate Rehabilitation, having served patients with brain injuries for more than 30 years, is one of the nation’s leading and highest quality providers of neuro rehabilitative services. Pate provides day treatment, transitional and residential rehabilitation therapy through its locations in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Anna, Texas. In combination with BrightSpring’s existing home and community rehabilitation business, Rehab Without Walls NeuroSolutions, the company’s expanded footprint in the segment now spans 19 states and Ontario, Canada, and offers the complete continuum of post-acute care for individuals with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or those who have suffered a stroke.
This acquisition unites two companies with shared missions and values, as well as strong reputations and patient outcomes, harnessing combined talent, expertise, and passion for state-of-the-art neuro rehabilitation services and solutions for patients and their families. These neuro rehabilitation services are life-changing, dramatically improving individuals’ functional capability and independence after significant and catastrophic neuro events.
“Our team is very excited to join the BrightSpring family,” said Kent Hayden, CEO of Pate Rehabilitation. “At Pate, we strive to always treat others as we would like to be treated – with honesty, compassion, understanding, and gratitude. There is simply no other way to operate, especially when our service is so deeply personal. Our philosophy, focus on delivering the best outcomes, and strong management and clinical teams are entirely consistent with BrightSpring’s priorities and culture and a great combination.”
BrightSpring President and CEO Jon Rousseau said, “As a leading neurorehabilitative therapy provider, Pate’s clinical expertise will enhance the company’s position and market-leading service levels and outcomes in the industry. With our combined footprint, we are accelerating the ability to bring a comprehensive, customizable continuum of neuro therapy services to more communities across the country. Our clinically focused integrated rehabilitation services include home and community, outpatient, day treatment, transitional support, supported living, and independent living. Pate, Rehab Without Walls, and BrightSpring share strong values and a commitment to people, quality, and our customers and patients.”
Jeff Weil, Vice President of Rehab Without Walls, stated, “The acquisition of Pate Rehab allows us to further strengthen our neuro rehabilitation services, offering the most complete continuum of post-acute neuro rehab in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and increasingly across the country. Our goal is to be the most patient-focused provider as we blend scientifically-backed protocols with real-life needs and activities. The addition of Pate Rehab positions us to expand our footprint and redefine the future for more patients.”
Pate will join Rehab Without Walls operations and will continue to operate under the name of Pate Rehab. Pate’s Vice President of Operations Christine Nelson and Director of Clinical Operations David Salisbury are respected leaders in the industry and will continue to lead the business.
