Scale Finance Advises on Debt Financing for Pediatric Advanced Therapy

Pediatric Advanced Therapy (PAT) provides occupational, physical, speech, and psychological therapy to children and young adults. PAT is rapidly growing having added a third location in south Charlotte last year. SF Managing Director Dave Gilroy advised on PAT’s highly successful process to raise growth capital and is an investor in the company.

PAT ( was founded in 1999 and has expanded to three locations – Mooresville, NC, Salisbury, NC, and Charlotte, NC. The company employess more than 50 professional therapists with over 200 years of clinical experience.

United Community Bank worked closely with PAT to create a $1.8 million financing solution supporting the company’s ongoing growth in both facility space, locations, and organizational resources.

PAT has compiled over 4,000 stories of triumph and success in the lives of children affected by developmental delays, autism, cerebral palsy, prematurity, Down’s syndrome, ADHD, Fragile X, spina bifida, seizure disorders and sensory integration dysfunction

PAT’s therapists guide and assist children to function optimally in their major roles (known as occupations) in life. A child’s primary occupation may include play, self-care, and school related activities. The skills necessary for successful, age appropriate functioning in these occupations include, but are not limited to: fine motor and gross motor coordination, sensory processing, visual perceptual and visual motor skills, attention (social and emotional), and daily living skills.

PAT’s clinics offer novel equipment, creative treatment spaces, unique environmental set-ups, and a dynamic staff, all of which allow us to meet the individual needs of each child through therapy. PAT’s lobbies have seated the broken hearted, the financially burdened and those eager for information to help their child. PAT’s dynamic staff gives them hope and strategies for success. The company is committed to helping each child reach his or her full potential through direct treatment, education and community outreach.
