Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics, Inc. has announced the opening of its York, Pennsylvania patient care facility. The grand opening will take place on Friday, March 26, 2010 at 2:00 pm. The new facility will be located at 960 George St. in York’s Colonial Village.
Since its founding in 2004, Ability’s nationally-renowned care has proven efficient and effective for over 7,500 patients. At Ability, certified orthotists/prosthetists evaluate, design and fit patients with custom, as well as off-the shelf, state-of- the-art orthotic and prosthetic devices. Currently, Ability services the WellSpan Gettysburg hospital and hopes to provide these skills and services to the WellSpan York Hospital through their new facility.
“The success Ability has enjoyed is due in part to the wonderful communities we are fortunate to work with and the truly loyal patients who are fundamental to our achievements,” says Jeffrey Brandt, CEO of Ability & Orthotics Inc. “We do everything in our power to meet our patient’s needs and we are personally committed to each and every patient. We have made it our goal to provide thorough, innovative and compassionate care and we look forward to providing the same level of care to our patients in York and surrounding region.”
In 2009, Ability saw its business soar more than 30%. With offices in Frederick and Hagerstown, MD, Gettysburg, Allentown and Exton, PA, Ability noticed an influx of patients from York, which ultimately led to the decision to open their newest location.
Ability is considered one of the market leaders in the prosthetic and orthotics field, providing state of the art limbs, such as the i-LIMB hand, E-MAG Active leg brace and the SMART Pyramid alignment system. Ability has gained both national and local media attention, appearing on segments for Fox Business Channel, Fortune Small Business and most recently ABC 27 in Harrisburg. The latter appearance came after organizing a limb drive for Haitian amputee victims, collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in prosthetic limbs to be donated to the earthquake survivors.
Ability is committed to the communities it serves. Ability has proven to be a proactive community partner by donating to organizations as diverse as Big Brothers Big Sisters of York and Adams Counties, as well as to the Care Path Campaign, which is dedicated to the renovation of the hospital’s out-patient services unit at WellSpan’s Gettysburg location.
Sarah M. Wooden, CPO, will be the practice manager of Ability’s newly opened, ABC-accredited, patient care facility. She is pleased to become a member of Ability Prosthetics and Orthotics, Inc. and is looking forward to the growth and development of the York office. Her trauma, out-patient and pediatric experiences will allow her to service those in need at York Hospital and surrounding communities with both timely and confident care.
