Chicago, IL (August 4, 2020) – Integrated Rehab Consultants (“IRC”), a portfolio company of Webster Equity Partners, is pleased to announce its acquisition of Associated Physicians of Rehabilitation (“APR”), a physiatry practice based in Chicago, IL.

“We chose to partner with IRC so we can continue to meet the growing demands of the physical medicine and rehabilitation market,” explains Dr. Rahul Sharma, APR CEO. “IRC’s quality of care and clinical standards are comparable to our own, making this relationship a seamless and natural fit.”

“Having known several physicians from APR for many years and seeing their great work, not only in post-acute/skilled nursing facilities, but also their impressive presence in hospitals, we are very excited to partner with Dr. Rahul Sharma’s team,” says IRC CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Amish Patel. “As we continue to lead the market nationally in physiatry services, we now have an even more capable team allowing for accelerated growth in the inpatient rehab space.”

Matt Ray, IRC COO and Co-Founder agrees, “Acquiring APR provides growth and strategic opportunity for both companies. With their strong market positions and reputation, we look forward to adding services at Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs) to the IRC mix. APR’s extensive footprint in the IRF market fits our already established footprint within SNFs. We are confident this will provide a strong opportunity for growth, as we respond to the needs of the communities we serve for post-acute health care services nationwide.”
