Kids Place Central, a provider of pediatric physical, occupational, speech and feeding therapy to children with developmental, neurological, and orthopedic concerns, has moved into the former Fiesta Pediatric Therapy building located at 2302 N. 15th Ave. The new facility, which is now owned by Kids Place, opened last month.
“This move from our current facility allows us to add more therapists and treat more children, all in an effort to better serve our community,” said co-owner Teri Roberts, DPT, PCS. “We had maxed out on space at our former location, and there were many more children needing treatment.”
Kids Place Central’s new building is approximately 7,000 square feet, three times the size of their old facility, with 12 private treatment rooms and multiple large gym areas.
In addition to the six currently employed physical, occupational, and speech therapists, Kids Place will add two new speech therapists and one speech and feeding therapist immediately. Plans to add additional physical and occupational therapists are also in the works.
Brittany Ricciardi, DPT, PCS has been promoted to clinic manager of Kids Place Central. Ricciardi has worked as a pediatric physical therapist at Kids Place West since 2015. She is a Board Certified Specialist in Pediatrics.
“In this role, I look forward to inspiring our therapists to grow and promote an environment that encourages teamwork to help each kiddo reach their full potential,” said Ricciardi.
Since 2008, Kids Place has provided pediatric therapy in physical, occupational, speech, and feeding therapy. In 2015, Kids Place Central opened to provide these services to more Phoenix area children. Kids Place is a part of Arizona Orthopedic Physical Therapy (AZOPT), which has locations in Goodyear, Buckeye, and Glendale. For more information, visit www.AZOPT.net.
