Physical Rehabilitation Network (PRN), a leading physical therapy provider and practice management organization, today announced the grand opening of its fourth physical therapy clinic in Irvine, California. The opening also marks the 30th clinic in PRN’s joint venture partnership with MemorialCare, a prominent nonprofit Southern California integrated health system. The new clinic will operate within the LA Fitness at 2880 Michelle Drive under PRN’s locally recognized and trusted brand, California Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy (Cal Rehab).
“We are thrilled to continue extending our leading physical care programs throughout the Irvine community with this fourth location,” said Ajay Gupta, CEO, PRN. “With a collaborative joint-venture partner like MemorialCare, we continue to broaden access to our tailor-made approach to physical therapy across the communities we support. At this new Cal Rehab clinic, we’re excited to have Alyson Vasconcellos lead our team of passionate and experienced therapists.”
Dr. Vasconcellos, PT, DPT, will lead the day-to-day operations of the facility as the clinic director. She received a bachelor’s degree from Chapman University before completing her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Southern California. Vasconcellos gained experience with internships in women’s health physical therapy, outpatient orthopedics, and sports medicine; but it was being a young athlete herself that first sparked her interest in working with athletes.
Cameron Tropple, DPT, CSCS, PT, will serve as the clinic's lead therapist.
“More clinics means more access and opportunity for MemorialCare to deliver a better experience and a better continuity of care—at a reduced cost—to patients across the Southern California region,” says Mark Schafer, M.D., CEO of MemorialCare Medical Foundation, which includes MemorialCare Medical Group and Greater Newport Physicians. “PRN’s network of physical therapy clinics is one of the fastest expanding in the country, with a reach that enables us to provide patients a comprehensive range of treatments.”
The new Irvine clinic, located within the LA Fitness at 2880 Michelle Drive, welcomes patients of all ages, and offers a wide range of pain management, post-surgery rehabilitation, and injury prevention services, including sports medicine, ergonomic solutions, and more. Most insurance plans are accepted at the location.
The MemorialCare–PRN partnership’s network of 30 clinic locations extends across Orange County centers in Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Newport Beach, Irvine, Huntington Beach, Anaheim, Anaheim Hills, Mission Viejo, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Niguel, Yorba Linda, Brea and Santa Ana/Tustin; Los Angeles County centers in Los Angeles/Beverly Hills, Torrance, Downey, Long Beach/Lakewood, Long Beach and Baldwin Park/West Covina; and Riverside County center in Corona.
