Nantucket Cottage Hospital Expanding Services with Manning & Associates Physical Therapy Transition

June 12, 2024 – Nantucket Cottage Hospital (NCH) is significantly expanding its physical therapy services, after agreeing to transition Manning & Associates Physical Therapy into its rehabilitation services department on July 8.

Manning & Associates owner, Joseph Manning, has been in communication with hospital leadership this past year about integrating his practice into the hospital’s current programs.

“We were obviously very familiar with the high-quality care Joe and his team provide – many of his patients are ours as well – so we saw it as an important opportunity to ensure that our island community will continue to have access to these excellent physical therapists,” said Nantucket Cottage Hospital president and chief operating officer Amy Lee. “We are committed to ensuring the island has the services the community needs, and also that there will be a seamless transition as they continue their care.”

Manning & Associates, which opened in 2006 and provides approximately 8000 patient visits per year, will transition services from its current location on Amelia Drive to NCH’s rehabilitation facility on Bayberry Court and at the hospital on Prospect Street beginning July 8. All of Manning & Associates’ therapists will become employees of Nantucket Cottage Hospital and will continue caring for their current patients.

Manning is excited to work with the hospital in an advisory role, as it expands rehabilitation and orthopedic services. “In considering this transition, it was critical that our patients could continue receiving the high-level, attentive, and compassionate care they expect and deserve. It is also important that my PT coworkers would be in an environment which promotes high quality services and growth in therapist skills,” said Manning.

In the coming weeks, patients will be provided information about the transition and necessary steps to transfer their care. Patients who choose to transition their care to the hospital will also see additional benefits, including additional in-network insurance providers, expanded hours of operation, and access to the state-of-the-art Bayberry Court facility and the newer rehab space on the Prospect Street campus. The hospital opened its Bayberry Court location in 2014 following a $300,000 donation from the Hospital Thrift Shop.
