It started as a vision. Steve Foster (PT, LAT ’80) wanted something where he could help younger physical therapists grow in a highly competitive industry.

“It’s hard to go out and open a single clinic and compete,” Foster said about the competition.

Foster knows what it takes to be successful in the industry. After graduating from UAB he worked for Physicians Physical Therapy before forming an out-patient private practice physical therapy company. He had that company for 13 years.

With the knowledge that he gathered, Foster worked on getting those younger physical therapists help they often needed.

“By giving therapists an opportunity like this, it can also increase their motivation to work harder because it’s something they can call their own,” Foster said.
