In the spirit of Thanksgiving I would like to reflect and be grateful for the love and encouragement from so many of you.
First, I am thrilled by the support shown to Foley Physical Therapy over the first 24 months of the business. When it began I was seeing a limited number of patients, certain days and times; not sure how people would receive the concept of directly paying for their own healthcare, and was anxious about selling the concept. I could not be happier with the initial success you all are having and the work we are doing in an efficient healthcare model. As a result of this FPT is in a place to achieve one of the primary business goals of “paying it forward” by supporting local charitable causes.
Second, I have been the recipient of many people’s love, generosity, encouragement and free cocktails. Without the steady reassurance of my partner Diane, the faith of my siblings, the aforementioned cocktails (and confidence) of Beth Fedorowich and her Fitness Essentials team, there is no Foley Physical Therapy. Additionally, the support from my longtime friends and past work colleagues, specifically those at the former Oakland Rehabilitation Associates (the best physical therapists in Pittsburgh and with whom I had the good fortune to be mentored over 20 years) has been unwavering. On top of that FPT has had the support of patients who have become friends and also the number one referral source for the business. I am honored by that statistic and so thankful for you All.
2018 has been a challenge for all of us outside the Engine House 16 doors. For some of you it has been that way for many years, for others it has been a new hardship and I wish I had the ability to never let you walk out the doors into that world. With that in mind and heart FPT will donate to the following funds in the hope of highlighting these charities to those not familiar and for the families, as a way to keep your loved one’s spirit as strong as ever.
In 2018 Foley Physical Therapy is a proud supporter of these organizations,
the Pittsburgh kids and adults honored, and the families and friends who love them always.
We are most definitely stronger together.
