Daniel Albanese, PT, owner and managing partner of Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates, LLC of Torrington, announced that his physical therapy practice has taken on ownership of the former Physical Therapy Center at 245 Alvord Park Road in Torrington. With this merger, Albanese named one of The Center’s physical therapists, Richard Boulli, as managing partner of the 245 Alvord Park Road office. Boulli, who has worked with The Center for 15 years, stated, “I’m very pleased to be working closely with Dan Albanese to assist in the overall management and operations of the newly-formed Maletta Pfeiffer offices. This is a very beneficial merger for all our staff members and our patients.” Combined, the two medical offices offer over 200 years of professional experience to their patients.

Albanese added, “This is the merger of two highly-visible, strong and accomplished physical therapy practices in the Torrington area. Both practices ideally complement each other in philosophies, techniques, certifications, and most importantly, in the mutual ambition to provide the highest level of service and care to our patients.” The Physical Therapy Center was previously owned since 1997 by physical therapist Larry Ross.

In addition to providing physical therapy services, Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates offers wellness consultations, massage therapy, custom weight management, nutritional counseling and supplemental products. Since 2012, the practice also offers the advanced P90X exercise program. “The complementing driving force of the two practices prior to, and the reason for the merger,” Albanese explained, “is to consistently provide all our patients with the highest quality healthcare. Both practices have consistently accomplished this by continually expanding our physical therapists’ knowledge through ongoing education and certification on the latest physical therapy techniques, equipment, and nutritional products. The recognizable goal of both of the practices, before and as one merged practice, is to provide every patient with effective, highly-attentive care that will help each of them return to functional activities in their individual lives.”

Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates LLC’s offices at 245 Alvord Park Road and 30 Peck Road provide a wide variety of therapeutic techniques for neck and back pain; chronic and migraine headaches; neurological disorders including MS, stroke, balance and gait; vertigo; sports and work injuries, carpal tunnel, arthriticpain, orthopedic problems and much more. “All our treatment plans,” explained Albanese, “are individualized and can include such treatments as ultrasound, electric stimulation, heat/ice, aquatic therapy, traction, and such hands-on techniques as massage, mobilizations, stretching, myofascial release and personalized nutrition and exercise.”

Named among the “40 Under 40” professionals recognized by Connecticut magazine in 2011 as a ‘business and community leader’, Albanese graduated with his BS in Physical Therapy from UCONN in 1997. In 2007, he purchased the privately-owned Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates healthcare practice in Torrington. He had been working as a physical therapist with the practice’s previous owner Ms. Maletta Pfeiffer who began the practice in 1978. “After taking on ownership,” stated Albanese, “we expanded the practice into a second office at 333 Kennedy Drive in Torrington, which we closed with the purchase of the Physical Therapy Center. The ambition of the merger is to offer within one practice a consolidated, well-trained and educated staff of physical therapists who collectively offer an award-winning high level of services. The recent acquisition of The Physical Therapy Center is a significant step in achieving that ambition. We have effectively merged the talents and capabilities of 11 highly-qualified physical therapists and assistants, and two teams of professional support staff, into one of the most advanced and dedicated health provider groups in this region.”

When Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates closed their 333 Kennedy Drive office in June and merged their team of physical therapists with the team at The Physical Therapy Center’s offices at 245 Alvord Park Road in Torrington, no jobs were lost. “The Alvord Park Road office,” Albanese said, “is over 4,500 square feet, so it easily accommodates our staff that moved there from our previous Kennedy Drive location. The only thing that changed was the name of the practice. Our patients never experienced any deviations to the services we provide during the transition of ownership and management.”

Widely-recognized and highly-appreciated as generous contributors to the Greater Torrington community, Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates, LLC is a well-known supporter of numerous community activities. Albanese is current treasurer of the Litchfield County Business Professionals (ww.lcbp.net) which meets regularly in Torrington. The practice is a premier sponsor of the Warner Theatre, and title sponsor for the Torrington Little League and Torrington Titans. “Our ambition is continually to give back to our generous community.” In 2013, Maletta Pfeiffer & Associates once again helped sponsor The Tour of Litchfield Hills. The annual fundraiser helps support the needs of cancer patients living in Northwest Connecticut as all proceeds go to The Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills, Inc.
