MILLBURY _ On October 20, 2017, elected state, regional, and local officials honored South County Physical Therapy, Inc. (SCPT) during a ribbon cutting ceremony at its Millbury practice, in recognition of the expansion project completed at 73 Canal Street and National Physical Therapy Month. This development provides SCPT, a recognized leader in physical therapy celebrating 32 years in business, with additional space to facilitate the growing demand for rehabilitation services in Worcester County.

The state-of-the-art construction project offers an additional 1,000 square feet to expand SCPT’s current service offerings, which include orthopedic & sports physical therapy, sports medicine, pediatric orthopedic physical therapy, dance medicine, oncology rehabilitation, osteoporosis rehabilitation, functional spine care, custom orthotics, and more.

“The services offered through South County Physical Therapy help to improve the quality of life for hundreds of local residents with short and long term conditions,” said Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury). “It’s exciting to have this resource so close to home, and to celebrate their recent expansion. I’m sure many of our neighbors will benefit from this opportunity.”

“Since 1985, we have always strived to maintain continuous growth, anticipating the needs of our patients, our practice, and our industry, to drive forward progress with ground-breaking programs and cutting edge treatment approaches,” said SCPT Founder and CEO Cathy Hoover-Smith. “Expanding our Millbury practice gives our team the opportunity to continue ongoing growth, with certified specializations and advanced techniques, as a leader in our industry. We are thrilled to be able to offer even more as we look ahead to the future.”

During National Physical Therapy Month each October, SCPT celebrates its commitment to physical therapy excellence; its benefits to patients through customized, results-orientated rehabilitation programs; and its yearly anniversary, in honor of SCPT’s core values which have remained steadfast across the past 32 years.

With the most cumulative experience on staff in the region combined with over one million patient visits, SCPT continues to grow and emerge with innovative concepts and treatment programs for its patients.

“We’re proud to share this beautiful facility with the region,” said SCPT Executive Director Eric Cardin. “SCPT dedicates countless hours to continuing education, mentoring, and ongoing staff development to benefit our patients, and the facilities we offer reflect this same commitment to excellence in care. It is always our goal to meet and exceed our patients’ expectations, and we continue to evolve our facilities, our team, and our programs,” Cardin said.

SCPT has contributed to the local economy with six practice locations in the communities of Auburn, Charlton, Millbury, Westborough (East Main Street and Oak Street), and Worcester. The practice has strengthened the Central Massachusetts workforce as an industry leader, by providing jobs to nearly 100 physical therapy professionals and has fostered the skills of emerging therapists with its Clinical Student Program through more than seven affiliations with local colleges and universities.

“As long as there are patients to treat in Central Massachusetts, we will continue to provide the best facilities, experience, and knowledge that our patients have come to expect from SCPT,” added Cardin.

For over 30 years, South County Physical Therapy, Inc. has been dedicated to providing its patients with quality, personalized rehabilitative care in an environment that is safe, comfortable and compassionate. As a privately owned company, the organization has given back to numerous charitable organizations in the communities it serves, and seeks to make a difference in promoting wellness and health awareness. The company offers six locations in Central Massachusetts that include: Auburn, Charlton, Millbury, Westborough (East Main Street and Oak Street) and Worcester. For more information, visit
