About Select Physical Therapy
Superior quality and care. Compassion and respect. Results-oriented. Teamwork. Resourcefulness. These are the core values upon which Select Medical and its Outpatient Division were built. Since its founding in 1996, Select Medical has passionately focused on providing superior, patient-centered care that improves quality of life.
Co-founded by Rocco Ortenzio and Robert Ortenzio, Select Medical began as a regional provider of outpatient physical rehabilitation. Long-term acute care was added to the company's specialized health care offerings in 1998. In 1999, Select Medical made one of its largest acquisitions by purchasing NovaCare Physical Rehabilitation and Occupational Health.
Within just three years, Select Medical had grown from a small start-up into a diversified health care company with a national presence. This progressive yet responsible growth was one attribute that led to the company's recognition as one of the Best Managed Companies in America by Forbes magazine.
