NOMS Advanced Health Therapy, owned and managed by Michael Martinez, DScPT, OCS, COMT and Thomas Legando, PT, Cert MDT, CDT, was established in 1993 providing outpatient services in Sandusky along with services to a local nursing home and home health agency. Private practice offered personal and independent practice benefits including the ability to better control quality care, increased autonomy and greater flexibility in decision-making.
From 1993 through 2015, NOMS Advanced Health Therapy’s commitment to compassionate and convenient services, with an emphasis on clinical efficiency and affordability, promoted a successful progression during volatile times in the health care industry. By 2015, we established an excellent reputation as the provider of choice for physical rehabilitation and wellness, offering: physical, occupational, speech therapy, and athletic training services at several outpatient offices, home health agencies, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and high schools.
Increasing government and insurance regulations were directly impacting AH’s solo practice and made it increasingly difficult to operate. After carefully considering the changing healthcare landscape, and in particular how these changes would impact the future of the practice and stability of our esteemed team, leadership made the sagacious decision to merge with NOMS Healthcare (Northern Ohio Medical Specialists).
Joining the NOMS family affords AH a robust administrative, financial, and human resource team, and we are now able to entirely focus on top-notch therapy services – which is what we do best.
Our main office is located at 2500 W. Strub Road in Sandusky, which includes a 17,000 square foot fitness center with an indoor track, state-of-the-art equipment, and warm-water therapy pool. NOMS Advanced Health Therapy provides physical, occupational and speech therapies and licensed athletic training services to numerous healthcare facilities throughout Northern Ohio.
We are proud of our advanced clinical accomplishments, only some of which include: the only local therapy provider offering certified manipulative therapy. Additionally, we offer fully certified therapists with advanced training in hand therapy, orthopaedics and sports, dizziness and vestibular rehabilitation, McKenzie and Maitland therapies, pediatric sensory integration, lymphedema therapy, and industrial rehabilitation.
Our team remains focused on providing quality, compassionate and convenient services for lowest possible patient costs. Our devotion to clinical efficiency and our pro-active clinical reputation afford us the ability to maintain a strong presence as we expand throughout the region, endeavoring to bring as many patients as possible, to best possible outcomes.
