History of Matrix Therapy Solutions, LLC
Setting the Standard in Therapy
Matrix Therapy Solutions LLC was formed in April of 2010 by co-owners Bridgette Bates and Michael Logan. Bridgette, an Occupational Therapist, and Michael, an Occupational Therapy Assistant, had worked together as a treatment team for the previous ten years in various settings, including rehabilitation hospital, nursing home, and home health.
Bridgette assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer and Michael assumed the role of Chief Financial Officer. The company had a modest start, hiring one employee and providing contract Occupational Therapy services to a small group of home health agencies surrounding Red River Parish in Louisiana. The first office existed in Bridgette's home, which was located in Coushatta at that time. Weekly staff meetings took place around her kitchen table. The company quickly became successful by providing a dependable service that was not previously available in the rural area.
Further growth was achieved in August of 2010 when Richard Holcombe joined the company as co-owner and assumed the role of Chief Operating Officer. Richard, a Physical Therapist and Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist, spearheaded the addition of contract Physical Therapy services to the Home Health Therapy division. The group then opened a freestanding outpatient therapy clinic in Coushatta in September of 2010, offering Outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy services. The company's office relocated from Bridgette's home to the location of the Outpatient Clinic at that time.
Exponential growth in the Home Health Therapy division occurred in the following years, as the company became known for providing dependable and clinically exceptional therapy services.
Helpful new advances were added, including:
- Electronic Documentation
- Speech Therapy Services
- Staff Growth
Numerous Home Health Agencies requested contracts as they became acquainted with Matrix business practices and superior level of customer service. The service area for Home Health Therapy expanded to include eleven parishes across all of Northwest Louisiana, and continues to grow today as Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists from a variety of locations continue to join the Matrix team.
