Hopebridge Autism Therapy Centers has announced plans to add more than 2,700 new employees and open up to 20 new locations in 2021.
Headquartered in Indianapolis and backed by the private equity firm Arsenal Capital Partners, Hopebridge is one of the nation’s largest autism treatment organizations. It provides center-based applied behavior analysis (ABA), diagnostics, occupational therapy and speech therapy to children on the spectrum.
As of September 2020, Hopebridge had 54 locations across six states. But that number could increase by nearly 40% in the year ahead, according to a press release announcing Hopebridge’s 2021 expansion plans.
That growth will start this month, with the opening of three new centers in the state of Colorado, where Hopebridge is on track to create 325 new jobs.
“Our mission remains to provide support and essential therapy services to as many children with autism spectrum disorder as possible,” CEO Dennis May said in the press release. “In order to provide the absolute best care to these children and their families, we are continuously seeking top talent in behavioral health. Each hire ensures that every child at Hopebridge receives the one-on-one therapy they deserve.”
Hopebridge’s growth will create new jobs in all the states where it currently operates, which include Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Georgia, Kentucky and Ohio.
