Three Twenty-One Capital Partners is pleased to announce that its client, HealthPRO Heritage, LLC (“HealthPRO” or “HPH”), has closed on the acquisition of Goodfellow Occupational Therapy (“Goodfellow” or “the Company”), marking HPH’s eighth transaction in the last eighteen months. Goodfellow has been a provider of pediatric occupational therapy since its inception over 20 years ago, more recently adding speech therapy and physical therapy services. The Company has become one of the forefront providers of pediatric therapy in California’s Central Valley and Central Coast areas.
John Goodfellow, OTD, OTR/L, founded Goodfellow Occupational Therapy in 1999 with the mission to “help children and their families live life to its fullest.” The Company grew to be recognized as one of the premier practices of pediatric occupational therapy (OT), physical therapy (PT), and speech language pathology (SLP) in Central California by providing high quality, evidence-based interventions for children with unique strengths and challenges. Goodfellow provides therapy for children with diagnoses such as autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, coordination disorders, fine and gross motor delays, speech and language delays, and mobility challenges.
Goodfellow provides services out of its outpatient clinic in Fresno, which is equipped with a total of four sensory motor gyms. Additionally, Goodfellow partners with school districts, regional centers, and California Children Services over a 9-county area. Regardless of whether the child receives therapy in the classroom, playground, home, or therapy clinics, Goodfellow’s therapists continuously strive to ensure that each child reaches their full potential.
With a partnership based on shared values and patient-focused principles, HealthPRO is happy to welcome Goodfellow to the team. The partnership is not only a good match but will also grow HealthPRO’s presence in the West and add to its network of pediatric OT, PT, and SLP providers – a strategic and synergistic triumph for HPH.
Goodfellow is already experiencing the benefits of an HPH partnership. Founder John Goodfellow states, “Within a month of joining forces with HealthPRO Heritage, we have already added new services for our school district partners and secured over 40 new potential positions for the 2021-2022 school year. With HPH’s years of successful experience recruiting highly skilled and hard-to-find professionals, we are confident that they will fill these positions with quality candidates. Most importantly, this partnership is supporting my personal vision of ensuring children who need our services will have access to our services. I am confident that Goodfellow Therapy has partnered with an exemplary company and in a few short years, we will be viewed as the premier pediatric therapy provider throughout California.”
