BIRMINGHAM, Alabama, August 2, 2021 — Upstream Rehabilitation (“Upstream”) announced today it completed the acquisition of Results Physiotherapy (“Results”).
With this acquisition, Upstream becomes the largest pure-play outpatient physical therapy provider in the U.S. The Results clinics expand Upstream’s portfolio to over 1,000 owned and managed clinics across 28 states. Upstream’s approximately 3,500 providers perform over 5 million patient visits annually.
“I am pleased to welcome the Results team to Upstream,” said Ron Kuerbitz, Chief Executive Officer of Upstream. “Addressing our country’s unmet need for high-quality physical and occupational therapy in a low-cost care setting is one of the great challenges in healthcare today. Combining the capabilities of Upstream and Results will allow us to improve access to patient-centric care delivered by an engaged team of therapist partners and associates who share a passion for life-long learning and a commitment to their communities.”
“We are excited to join the Upstream platform,” said Michael Martin, CEO of Results. “This partnership is a natural fit due to our similar clinical and operational models, as well as a clear alignment of values and culture. By joining Upstream, we can continue our mission with a partner who brings unique strengths and capabilities.”
“In addition to Upstream’s market-leading same-store sales and de novo growth, add-on acquisitions are a critical element of Upstream’s significant growth trajectory. The acquisition of Results accelerates Upstream’s mission of expanding access to physical rehabilitation services and providing patients the quality care they deserve,” said Simon Bachleda, Chairman of Upstream’s Board of Directors and Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Revelstoke Capital Partners.
The Results acquisition is Upstream’s largest acquisition to date, and adds even greater scale, network density and capabilities to the Upstream platform, all of which position Upstream’s patients and stakeholders to continue benefiting from the shift to low-cost care settings and value-based care models.
Winston & Strawn LLP and McDermott Will & Emery LLP acted as legal and regulatory counsel, respectively, to Upstream. Houlihan Lokey and McGuireWoods LLP and Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP acted as financial advisor and legal counsel, respectively, to Results.
