To provide quality health and wellness services by promoting and encouraging individual achievement through a healthy lifestyle.
Full Range was started to provide quality services to patients throughout the lifespan. In early 2014, amidst a constantly changing healthcare environment, Full Range was founded and called Full Range Physical Therapy.
Founder, Michael McDevitt, PT, DPT, Cert. MDT, decided to embrace the change and develop a practice that empowers clinicians to treat their patients one-on-one, in an environment that is convenient. Full Range quickly added additional services, including Occupational and Speech Therapy.
Fast forward to 2019, we changed our name to more accurately represent our services now and in the future. Today, Full Range is the only private, clinician owned and operated healthcare provider in the Greater Philadelphia Area offering the full post-acute continuum of services.
Now known as Full Range Health Services, we have 3 main divisions:
- Home Healthcare in Renaissance Home Health
- Outpatient House Calls and Home Health Contracting in Full Range Rehab
- Outpatient Clinics in Full Range Physical Therapy
MEET THE TEAM
Our team includes the most passionate group of clinicians that have found a home in a practice that prides itself on going above and beyond for all of our patients. Our clinicians have many years of experience in all aspects of healthcare.
