Wind Point Sells Physiotherapy
Wind Point Partners and Water Street Complete Sale of Physiotherapy Associates to Court Square Capital Partners
Wind Point Partners and Water Street Healthcare Partners, a strategic private equity firm focused exclusively on the health care industry, announced today that they have completed the sale of Physiotherapy Associates to Court Square Capital Partners. Headquartered in Exton, Pennsylvania, Physiotherapy Associates is the nation’s foremost provider of outpatient rehabilitation services.
Wind Point and Water Street transformed Physiotherapy Associates into an industry leader when they merged two of their specialty health care services companies in 2007. They combined Benchmark Medical, which Wind Point built through 23 acquisitions, and Physiotherapy Associates, which Water Street acquired from Stryker Corporation. The firms recruited a senior management team and further expanded the company’s leadership position through a combination of strategic initiatives and targeted acquisitions.
“Together with Wind Point and Water Street, we executed a strategic plan that capitalized on the size and scale of two companies to transform Physiotherapy Associates into a national leader."
