Avalon Lifemark

Toronto, ON January 3rd, 2020 - Lifemark Health Group is pleased to announce that it has acquired Avalon Physiotherapy Ltd, which has been providing physiotherapy and rehabilitation services to the citizens of St. John’s, Newfoundland and the surrounding areas since 1990. In 2018, Avalon Physiotherapy won a St. John’s Consumer Choice Award for the physiotherapy business sector, recognizing its excellence in patient care.

Well-established in its community, Avalon Physiotherapy Ltd. operates two clinics in St. John’s, one on Kenmount Road and another inside The Health Plex on Empire Avenue. The clinics offer a full range of physiotherapy services, including a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) program, the GLA:D™ program (an education and neuromuscular exercise program developed to offload the stresses from the knee and hip joints), treatment of MVA and work-related injuries, a program for osteoporosis patients and treatment of concussion injuries and sports injuries.

“Avalon Physiotherapy has been an affiliate of Lifemark for many years and we are very happy to have them officially join the Lifemark family,” said Peter Stymiest, CEO of Lifemark Health Group. “The team at Avalon Physiotherapy has been delivering superior physiotherapy services to Newfoundlanders for over 29 years and its glowing reputation speaks for itself. This acquisition also allows us to continue to increase our footprint in Newfoundland, helping us reach more Canadians through expanded access to care.”
