    Programs that are certified by AACVPR participate in its national registry.

    Being part of the national registry allows us to compare our outcomes with other car-diac-pulmonary rehabilitation programs across the country, Stephen Swierczek, director of respiratory care and cardiac-pulmonary rehabilitation at St. Josephs Health, said in a news release. Our outcomes have been shown to be favorable as compared to those in the registry, and every year, we set goals to surpass our outcomes

    as part of our commitment to provide a higher level of care.

    St. Josephs Health is a non-profit regional health-care sys-tem based in Syracuse, serving

    patients throughout Central New York and northern Pennsylvania.

    It is affiliated with Franciscan Companies and St. Josephs Physicians and is part of the Trinity Health system.

    AACVPR, based in Chicago, describes itself as a multi-disciplinary professional as-sociation comprised of health professionals who work in the field of cardiac and pulmo-nary rehabilitation. Members include cardiovascular and pulmonary physicians, nurses, exercise physiologists, physical therapists, behav-ioral scientists, respiratory therapists, dieticians, and nutritionists.

    DeWITT Onondaga Physical Therapy has recently opened a new location to provide its outpatient physical-therapy services on Syracuses east side.

    The new clinic, its fifth, opened its doors on Feb. 1 in DeWitt. It is located alongside Metro Fitness East at 6800 E. Genesee St., in the former Track & Racquet Club/Fitness Forum, but oper-ates on a separate five-year lease.

    Onondaga Physical Therapy says it offers one-on-one care for injuries, ill-nesses, and conditions through modern physical therapy techniques.

    The new DeWitt office has one physi-cal therapist and one office coordina-tor, and more hiring could follow with growth in the practice.

    Obviously, as we grow our patient base, well certainly increase [the em-ployee count] from there as we need to, says Lauris Rigdon, the firms CEO and sole owner, and one of its physical thera-pists. He spoke to HealthCare Provider / CNYBJ on Feb. 5.

    Julie Dmochowski leads the clinic, which operates in a 2,000-square-foot space. Dmochowski previously worked at the clinics Onondaga Hill location, says Rigdon. The company also hired a new employee to provide service on

    Onondaga Hill. O n o n d a g a

    Physical Therapy employs about 15 full-time workers across all its of-fices.

    In DeWitt, it op-erates on a lease separate from Metro Fitness East, but the clinics patients can use the onsite fitness center and indoor running track.

    We have full access to the entire facility as part of our lease as well, says Rigdon.

    Onondaga Physical Therapy provides traditional orthopedic physical therapy, but will also offer gait and balance train-ing, rehabilitation post-concussion, as well as running and sport-specific train-ing.

    Search for spaceOnondaga Physical Therapy had been

    working to find real estate so it could open a location on the east side of Syracuse.

    A connection through a local group helped move the process along, as Rigdon recalled it.

    Both Rigdon and Randy Sabourin, owner of Metro Fitness, are members of the Entrepreneurial Society of Central New York.

    Rigdon also knew Sabourin when he rented space at Crouse Hospitals physi-cal-therapy clinic.

    Sabourin had suggested Rigdon con-sider opening a DeWitt office at 6800 E. Genesee St.

    It really became a priority for us to make that happen there, says Rigdon.

    As part of the lease, Edgewater Group handled the renovation work in prepar-ing the space for operations.

    They installed the bathroom and then re-did all of the flooring and painted the walls the big thing was probably the bathroom, the carpeting, and the paint, says Rigdon.

    Onondaga Physical Therapy used company cash to invest about $20,000 to cover startup costs in opening the DeWitt location, he adds.

    The company also had to purchase four treatment tables, an ultrasound ma-chine, and other therapy-specific equip-ment.

    Onondaga Physical Therapys other four offices are Baldwinsville, Cicero, Salina, and Onondaga Hill.

    Rigdon first launched the company in 2003 on Onondaga Hill.

    All clinics are uniquely located in fitness centers, according to a company news release.

    Rigdon declined to disclose the companys revenue totals, but says that Onondaga Physical Therapy ex-pects to grow revenue by 35 percent this year.

    The company logged about 16,000 patient visits to its offices in 2015.
