Legacy private practice group, HPRC, announces partnership with Louisville-based Confluent Health

Human Performance and Rehabilitation Centers, Inc. (HPRC) is proud to announce plans to partner with Confluent Health, a Louisville, Kentucky-based private equity holding company focused on creating a healthcare system that combines best-in-class clinical care in the rehabilitation industry with proven management services.  The partnership is expected to be effective in 4th quarter 2020, and will maintain HPRC’s brand, management/leadership and namesake while allowing them access to Confluent Health’s shared management services, including accounting and finance, talent acquisition, marketing, and staff development opportunities.

HPRC was founded in Columbus, Georgia in 1955 by George M. McCluskey Jr, PT.  What began as one-man practice has grown into a business with locations across Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina.   McCluskey founded HPRC with one idea in mind:  to rebuild the body’s functional capability and to improve life, one patient at a time.  “Our culture and values are the only things that haven’t changed since my father founded our company 60+ years ago.  Our task is to grow our business while understanding the realities of the present and the challenges of the future, and yet remain faithful to our heritage,” said Brian McCluskey, Ph.D., Chairman/CEO of HPRC.  “Change is the only constant we know,” he added.  “We believe that partnering with Confluent Health is our best chance to continue to grow and remain a viable and relevant healthcare company in the future.”

“We are enthusiastic to venture in this partnership with Confluent Health; this will enable us to continue to invest in our communities by improving patient’s lives, and increase professional growth opportunities for our staff,” stated Patrick Graham, PT, MBA, HPRC’s President/COO and son-in-law of founder George McCluskey.

Confluent Health has a simple strategy – to partner with legacy practices in the therapy industry, align their clinical focus with Confluent’s business resources and proven systems, and grow business.  “We offer our warmest welcome to Brian and Patrick and the team at HPRC.  They have a rich history of best-in-class clinical care and uphold a steadfast commitment to their patients, which are exactly the practices we love to join in partnership,” said Confluent Health CEO, Dr. Larry Benz DPT, OCS, MBA, MAPP.
