Healthcare providers merge to create a Tasmanian-first

TWO leading Tasmanian allied healthcare specialists, Your Path to Health and Leap Health, have joined forces to open a unique new facility on the Eastern Shore.

Combining their award-winning skills and experience with high-profile Tasmanian sporting teams, the Tasmanian-owned family businesses offer care across four allied health disciplines providing assistance with a wide range of chronic conditions, obesity issues and injuries.

The venture is now housed in a purpose-built, first-class injury management and rehabilitation centre at 17 Bayfield Street, Rosny.

Leap Health co-director and senior physiotherapist Stewart Williamson said the merge meant that physiotherapy services were more readily available to people who lived in suburbs and towns surrounding Hobart.

“I am privileged to employ staff who, as well as being highly skilled in their field, genuinely care about their patients,” he said.

“Jess and the guys at Your Path to Health will make the new clinic here at Rosny not only a first class treatment facility but also a great place to be.”

Your Path to Health owner Jessica Webb said she joined with Leap Health to create a one-stop location for health and wellness.

“We can now provide first class care across four different allied health professions, allowing for a more coordinated approach to rehabilitation and lifestyle change,” she said.

“We pride ourselves on creating an atmosphere that is safe, comfortable and friendly, a place people can undergo treatment or participate in an exercise class without feeling overwhelmed or out of place.”

Your Path to Health first started business in 2011 and in 2014 won the Tasmanian Start-up Business of the Year Award.

Leap Health began operating in 2007 and provides physiotherapy for high profile Tasmanian sporting teams, including cricket teams the Tasmanian Tigers, Tasmanian Roar and the Hobart Hurricanes, as well the Tasmanian Tigers senior men’s hockey team.
