As the head of the new physical therapy clinic at the new Healthcare Partners Investmentsâ (HPI) Tri City Clinic, Bill Towler has a lot on his plate.
The CEO of Consano Healthcare, his company is one of several tenants in the clinic, located at 300 NW 32nd St. Scheduled to open in full Monday, Mar. 3, Towlerâs company is poised to bring a new level of acute and post-acute care to the citizens of Newcastle and Tri-City at large.
Towler, despite operating a physical therapy facility in the building, does not see having regular office space as being conducive to good health care, preferring to work in open spaces and in the patientâs home.
âOur company, we have an office in northwest OKC. We have a home health business as well,â Towler said. âWeâve been in the home health business about five years. This is our first outpatient clinic.â
Towlerâs physical therapy clinic, headed by physical therapist David Haynes, is not the only practice in the building under HPI. Other tenants include neurosurgeon Dr. Mike Alvis, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Ryan Nelson, Physician's Assistant Kevin Mason, and family nurse practitioner Jeramiah Walker.
As a tenant, Consano Healthcare invested $75,000 in developing their part of the facility. The entire building will employ about 15 people.
The goal of both Consano Healthcare and the overall facility is the streamlining care for patients as they transition from the hospital to a healthy, normal home life.
âWe want providers to look at us, when they think home care and physical therapy, they think Consano,â he said. âThe provider gets consistent care, they get it under one roof, and those handoffs happen smoothly ... to connect the dots of care so it is not as inefficient as it has been.â
In choosing Newcastle, Towler feels that Newcastle is a growing market surrounded by larger markets that are âtappedâ in where businesses like his can expand.
âEverybody in Newcastle has been great,â Towler said. âOur goal is to be an active corporate citizen of the community, and to be involved with the schools as well.â
