To say The Recovery Project comes from humble beginnings might be a bit of an understatement.
The physical rehabilitation firm got its start in the Livonia YMCA with three people in 2003. Today the company employs 40 people between its home base in Livonia and satellite office in Macomb Township. It has hired five people over the last year, including physical therapist assistants and technicians.
“We do plan on hiring over the next year,” says Charles Parkhill, co-CEO of The Recovery Project. “Probably 4 to 6 over the next year.”
The Recovery Project specializes in high-intensity physical therapy and rehab services. It has full-service independent clinics in Livonia and Macomb. The company has watched its revenue jump 20 percent over the last year as more and more doctors refer patients.
“They only come when doctors see progress with their patients,” Parkhill says.
The Recovery Project is also planning to move its Macomb Township facility to a larger space next year. The new space will be about double the square footage of its 2,700-square-foot office.
“We expect our clientele to quickly fill out the space,” Parkhill says.
