SPEAR Physical Therapy NYC Founders Dan Rootenberg and David Endres pose with Director Ryan Kitzen for CHASE’s Mission Main Street Advertising campaign.
Who knew being so personal could make us go national?
SPEAR Physical Therapy focuses solely on its patient successes. Which makes national reward recognition that much more humbling. Our two-dozen impassioned physical therapists never saw this coming. They spend each working hour in having personal conversations with NYC patients, helping them overcome physical challenges like simply rotating their shoulders, walking up stairs, and preparing for surgeries.
So when Chase contacted SPEAR Physical Therapy last month requesting that the team be included in Chase Bank’s Mission Main Street advertising campaign, our therapists were amazed. We all knew that our patients and referring physicians have faith in us, but who knew that even Chase Bank considered us as one of the greatest small businesses in the country.
Unique and Unexpected
Of the 4 million small businesses serviced by Chase, just seven were chosen to appear in this campaign. Of the seven businesses, SPEAR was the only healthcare company. In the healthcare industry, which is not heavily marketed, it is profoundly rare for medical practices to be featured in any corporate campaign–let alone in a campaign featuring small, boutique, customer service focused businesses thriving in the face of economic turmoil.
SPEAR Physical Therapy is on a list that includes the likes of a toy maker, creative contractor, demolition expert, airboat manufacturer, and an art and advertising fabricator, all of whom are receiving recognition for passionately doing what they love: helping to grow the local economy and serving the community in the process. By treating each patient as a personal friend, SPEAR’s physical therapists have helped expanded its physical therapy service into five neighborhoods throughout New York City. SPEAR Physical Therapy’s personal relationships with its customers is the #1 reason they are being featured in Chase’s Mission Main Street campaign.
Recognizing our customers has the entire country recognizing us!
Inc. Magazine also recognized SPEAR Physical Therapy’s dedication to it’s customers. This summer became the second time that SPEAR was named one of Inc. 5000’s fastest growing private businesses. SPEAR Physical Therapy is the only physical therapy practice in NYC and even New York State to receive the coveted distinction. For Dan, Dave, and Ryan, the recognition is a humbling reminder of how far the team has come. Being able to share the home we’ve built over a 15-year period treating over 100,000 patients with our team members, families, friends, physicians and patients has been a joy, and we can’t thank you enough for coming on this journey with us! We look forward to serving our patients and the community, continuing in our tradition of compassionate care for the New York City area! Read more about SPEAR and the Inc. 5,000 list here.
