ABOUT RED HAWK PHYSICAL THERAPY
To our cherished Red Hawk community,
It is with whole-hearted enthusiasm that we want to share some very big news. Come June 28th, we will be closing our main clinic and headquarters at 580 Market Street as well as our satellite clinic housed at the Jewish Community Center in San Francisco. Our final day for treating patients at both locations is June 27th, 2013. We have so very much enjoyed our long-established presence at these locations over the past decade where it has been a true blessing to witness our extended Red Hawk family grow and flourish. From serving our patients on their journeys back to wellness, to hosting our weekly yoga classes, to offering our mini-lecture series, to celebrating our very own San Francisco Giants bring home the 2012 National Championship trophy as the parade passed right by our Market Street clinic...the memories we've created amongst the staff and with our patients over the past decade have been, in a word, unforgettable.
While we Hawks are taking flight in a different direction, we are not gone for good. In fact, we have been very busy behind the scenes creating our new refreshed nest with our dear friends and esteemed partners at Yoga Tree San Francisco! We are proud to announce that the doors to our Portrero Hill clinic will be open and ready to welcome you on July 8th. This is the product of a precious vision that has been in our sights for a while now; one which we have been extremely eager to share with you! During this time of transition, we have taken a close look at all of our systems and will be making changes to and upgrading several of them. On that note, many of you have spoken and we've listened! We are pleased to announce that you can expect a more clear billing system as well as an on-line scheduling program that will expedite your appointment-making process. And it gets even better: our new clinic is designed not only to continue our state-of-the-art physical therapy treatments & pilates sessions, but will now have dedicated space for hosting both classic hatha yoga and yoga ropes classes. You can expect to see more offerings in this department, with an expanded schedule and scope of our therapeutic yoga classes. We will maintain our ability to offer our patients access to gym and shower facilities, courtesy of our gracious new neighbors downstairs at World's Gym. We can't wait for you to come be a part of this experience!!
We do acknowledge that this change of location may not be optimal for some of you in our community, but we hope you will find a way to stay connected to Red Hawk in a capacity that works for you. For those who are unable to join us at our Portrero Hill clinic, we want to assure you that we will do our best to assist you in the continuity of your care. As our termination date draws near, we will be offering a list of alternate physical therapy providers for you to ensure minimal disruption to your healing process.
Through this transition, please know that our commitment to you, our patients, students, and extended community, is and always has been, at the very core of who we are here at Red Hawk. Each and every one of you who walks through our doors matters dearly to us. So, it is with deepest bows of gratitude that we want to say thank you for being a part of our Red Hawk family. While we are settling in to our new home, we know that the one thing guaranteed for everyone is change. We invite you to come celebrate this dynamic time, and embrace our new home and this season of transition with us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
In Gratitude for Growth, Change, & Expanding Community,
Red Hawk Physical Therapy is both a clinic, and a family of incredibly talented and caring individuals. Since its first year in 1994, Harvey wanted Red Hawk’s clinics to be more like a home for his patients. The goal since the beginning was to have a team of physical therapists that would work together towards the common goal of holistic healing and recovery. The therapists at Red Hawk are a family to one another. The clinics are a confluence of all the wonderful and unique physical therapists present at each location.
The name Red Hawk was chosen due to its symbolism and meaning, A Red-Talied Hawk totem is special. It has direct ties to the Kundalini, the seat of primal life force. It is associated with the base chakra. A Red Hawk is associated with fulfilling the purpose of one’s soul. It reflects a greater intensity of energy within your life: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual forces will all be strong with the individual. The Red-Tail Hawk is a permanent totem—it will always be with you.
Harvey graduates from University of Vermont in 1981 and moves to L.A where he works as a physical therapist for 6 years in hospital and private settings. In 1987 Harvey decides to move to San Francisco and continues working as a Physical Therapist.
After working as the director of a sports medicine clinic for 7 years, Harvey decides to open his own clinic. In 1994 Red Hawk Physical Therapy is born and patients in the bay area are introduced to a more personalized and ‘patients first’ approach to physical therapy and healing.
Over the next decade Red Hawk has expanded to 4 locations in the bay area. Each location boasts a team of talented physical therapists with a wide range of skills and specialties. The venues are designed to give patients convenient access, along with various amenities.
Red Hawk Physical Therapy is a collaboration of all the wonderful, talented and caring people that make up the staff. With their unique and holistic approach to healing and patient wellness, Red Hawk has now evolved into the Bay Area’s leading Physical Therapy clinic.
