The SPEAR team getting ready to cut the ceremonial red ribbon!
April 2019 was a historic moment for SPEAR: it marked the grand opening of our Long Island City—CityView clinic! The first of its kind, the launch of this clinic is our first venture into Queens. This was a momentous occasion, as it brought us one step closer to achieving our goal of reaching as many New Yorkers as possible to continue providing top-notch patient care.
While the clinic did open on time, we never did get a proper celebration for this launch due to the pandemic. It’s never too late to commemorate, however—so we hosted our ribbon cutting now! Our SPEAR leaders and teammates congregated safely at Long Island City – CityView to commemorate the launch of the clinic, which opened almost two years prior down to the day. Clinical Director John Mackarey, PT, DPT did the official honor of cutting the ribbon, symbolizing the ceremonial grand opening of this clinic and all the amazing opportunities for healing it has to offer!
CEO and CO-founder Dan Rootenberg addresses the team in a rousing speech
Introducing a new clinic location allowed us to be more easily accessible and accommodate more appointments for those who need it most. SPEAR’s partnership with CityView Racquet Club truly provides an elevated experience for patients within a premier luxury facility with plenty of incredible amenities. Long Island City – CityView is equipped with many treatment areas, updated workout equipment, locker room facilities, and is always thoroughly cleaned and sanitized per CDC guidelines.
We’re so excited we had the opportunity to finally celebrate such an eventual marker in SPEAR’s history. We look forward to continuing to expand and grow in the NY area, helping more residents get Back to Life!
