Anne Kertson and Silpa Patel want to personally share the news with the Snoqualmie Valley Community that, after significant thought and consideration, they have jointly decided to sell Edge Physical Therapy & Rehab to Select Physical Therapy.
The pair are full of emotions, most notably excitement for the opportunities this will bring – for their patients, staff and themselves. They have worked incredibly hard over the past ten years to build Edge into a place they are proud of, allowing them to help so many patients and members of the Snoqualmie Valley community.
It has been both their greatest accomplishment and some of their greatest challenges. Healthcare has changed drastically, and running a small business comes with several costs. Primarily treating patients via health insurance has come to the point that it is too difficult to run a small business.
Unlike other industries and businesses that can raise their prices, they have a fixed allowable charge for the services they provide set by insurance companies. To be able to continue to offer the same excellent standard of care and to be able to treat their staff with the benefits and compensation they deserve, they have acknowledged that they need more support.
Select Physical Therapy was chosen as they share the same beliefs and philosophies that Edge holds as pillars to their business, in caring for patients and their employees at the highest level possible.
Kertson and Patel appreciate everyone’s continued support and flexibility as they make this transition over the next few weeks. Rest assured, your favorite faces will be there to greet you and help you through your rehab journey.
Along with the change in ownership, there will be some changes in the administrative platform. Silpa will be transitioning to the Center Manager to assist in delivering leadership to the team and community. Along with Theresa, Silpa and the team will continue to provide the outstanding customer service and physical therapy services you have always counted on at Edge.
Anne will be transitioning out of the clinic over the next month to focus on some personal goals, including finishing the last year of her MBA and expanding professionally into some bigger-picture healthcare and business aspirations.
They both want to thank you for your continued support and belief in them.
“We could never have got to this place of pride and gratitude in the impact Edge has made without you all. This community, our staff and our patients have been amazing, and we are excited to step forward to the next phase with you.
In good health,
Anne & Silpa”
