Physical Therapy Firm Plans New Building for Therapy, Corporate Offices
Georgialina Physical Therapy will get a new North Augusta home in a few months, along with more space for its corporate office.
Ground has been broken on Martintown Road in North Augusta for a 10,000-square-foot building that will be home to Georgialina Physical Therapy and two other businesses. It is located across from the Bank of America, not far from Georgialina’s current facility in the North Hills Center.
Thomas Bryson, director of marketing and communication for Georgialina, said Georgialina will occupy the ground floor of the two-story building, about 5,000 square feet. The upstairs will be divided into two 2,500-square-foot suites. One will be occupied by Palmetto Wellness and Weight Loss.
One of the big advantages of the new building will be consolidating and expanding the corporate office. Currently some parts of the corporation are in different locations, with some of it squeezed into about 1,000-square-feet in North Augusta. The new office space will be about 1,800 square feet and include the call center and conference rooms.
“We’re bringing a lot of pieces together,” Bryson said.
The new facility will also allow Georgialina to add a state-of-the-art pool for aquatic therapy. The 96-degree pool helps in rehabilitation of weight-bearing issues and gait and balance issues.
“It’s unique to the area,” Bryson said.
Bryson said the new building should be ready in March. It will include parking areas in front and in back. It will continue the same hours as the current location, 8 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m-5 p.m. on Friday.
This will be Georgialina’s 10th location. It is also opening a facility in Riverwood Plantation in Evans in January.
