Harris Regional Hospital and Swain Community Hospital have partnered with PT Solutions Physical Therapy, a national provider of physical, occupational and speech therapy, and sports medicine services including athletic training.

The partnership will expand the hospitals’ services in Western North Carolina and provide additional opportunities for the clinical team of therapists caring for patients and athletes in Jackson, Swain, Macon, Graham, Cherokee and Clay counties, and Rabun County, Georgia. Harris Regional Hospital and Swain Community Hospital also have a longstanding partnership with Western Carolina University Athletics and operate a physical therapy and sports medicine clinic at the College of Health and Human Sciences.

The same team of therapists and athletic trainers will serve in the same capacities and at the same locations as always. The team consists of more than 40 therapists and athletic trainers providing evaluation and treatment for patients, and practice, competition, concussion prevention and injury management for athletes.

“PT Solutions is a company that we feel shares our values and can provide a focused environment for growth and employee development for rehabilitation services,” said Steve Heatherly, CEO of Harris Regional Hospital. “Our therapy and athletic training team is the best in the region, and we are excited to forge a partnership that will provide limitless growth and development opportunities for our staff and organization, all focused on serving patients and our communities.”

“We’re looking forward to joining forces with the therapists and athletic trainers of Harris Regional Hospital and Swain Community Hospital. Their clinical expertise and local knowledge, combined with our resources and collaborative approach to providing Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine services, will help serve these communities at an even greater capacity than before,” PT Solutions President and Co-Founder Rocky Barnes said.
