Hopebridge Pediatric Specialists, a local therapy and autism center, has expanded to a new 6,300-square-foot facility at 1300 North Airport Office Park. The company now has three times the space to accommodate the large increase in patients it is seeing at the Fort Wayne clinic for a variety of services, including speech and physical therapy. The office opened Monday. The changes included a larger lobby, full functioning kitchen, sensory room, rock climbing wall, large gross motor skills gym, said Kim Strunk, president and founder of Hopebridge, in a news release. During the recent expansion, Hopebridge hired six new staff members: an occupational therapy assistant, four applied behavior analysis therapists, and an administrative assistant.
