#3 — Southside Physical Therapy Inc.

CEO/owners, background: Jonathan Sampson, 32 years as a physical therapist and Morag Sampson, 33 years as a physical therapist.

Number of Employees: 5

Year Established in Central Oregon: 2016, under current ownership

Product/Services Offered: Physical Therapy with a focus on manual therapy to treat the dysfunction associated with spinal pain, headaches, temporomandibular joint pain, sports injuries, chronic overuse injuries and general orthopedic conditions. Our Certified Hand Therapist treats hand injuries and provides post-surgical rehabilitation.

Hot News: During the first week of November, we will be celebrating our first-year anniversary in our new professional, downtown location.

Outlook for Growth: With the continued growth of Bend and Deschutes County, we see a strong demand for physical therapy services from our current and future population.

Because we provide a high standard of care for a wide variety of conditions, we anticipate an increase in utilization of our services.

What do you attribute your rapid growth to? Our change of location and the addition of two new skilled physical therapists in 2019 enabled the company to grow. Our website designer and marketing specialist, Julia, at Uncharted Summit LLC, has worked tirelessly to promote our business on multiple online platforms.

We aim to provide a consistently high level of care to our patients in a friendly and comfortable environment.

We have made the business as cost-effective as possible while trying to utilize local businesses such as Carlson Signs, Press Pros, Solutions Yes, H2O to Go, Alliance Supply Co., Bend Mailing Services, Capstone CPA’s LLC and Aileen Baxter Design.

What is your vision for growth and/or expansion over the next 5 years? We plan a slow progression during the next five years to ensure the security of our current employees. We aim to bring on a sixth physical therapist to fully utilize all our treatment room space and are currently hiring a part-time employee to join our busy administration personnel.

What is your philosophy to running a successful company? Working alongside our employees and encouraging a team approach. We believe continuing professional education is important to enable us all to provide the best treatment approach for our patients.
