Agility Health Partner, Border Therapy Services, Opens Fourth Location in East El Paso

EL PASO, TX--(Marketwired - June 10, 2014) - Agility Health Inc. (TSX VENTURE: AHI) partner, Border Therapy Services (BTS), a leading provider of physical therapy services in the greater El Paso, Texas area, today announced the opening of a new clinic on the far east side of the city to better serve their patient population.

"This is our fourth location in El Paso," said Wayne Shaw, BTS director of operations. "The far east side is a quickly growing area. We've been watching it and we saw a demand for the services we provide, so we decided it was time to help out and open a closer, more convenient location for residents."

The new location on Edgemere Blvd. opened its doors in April and is already exceeding expectations in patient traffic volumes, with as many as 90 visits per week.

"There's a large military population in the area and having our services nearby has proved to be beneficial for that market," said Shaw. "We also see everything from sports injuries, such as ACL reconstructions and rotator cuff problems, to general knee and back issues. Our therapists can essentially handle any type of orthopedic injury."

A partner of the national Agility Health physical therapy network, BTS has the largest outpatient physical therapy staff in El Paso with 15 licensed therapists, three physical therapy assistants (PTAs) and two athletic trainers. Between all existing clinics, BTS sees approximately 750 to 800 patients each week. All BTS locations offer free screenings and consultations.

BTS is involved in the community, covering the area's junior hockey team, the El Paso Rhinos, and providing services for sports programs at El Paso Community College.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
