Indianapolis-based Hopebridge Autism Therapy Centers is continuing its expansion across the U.S. The company says it is planning to open six new centers in Arizona, bringing the total to 12 in the state.
The health company, which specializes in autism spectrum disorder, says the expansion will bring total staffing to 300 people in Arizona.
In January, Hopebridge announced plans to hire more than 2,700 employees this year in six states, including Arizona.
The company says the prevalence of autism spectrum continues to grow with the demand for therapists outpacing the supplies.
In February, Hopebridge founder Kim Strunk discussed with Business of Health Reporter Kylie Veleta about the need for increasing access to appropriate care.
