Pain group reopens 9 of 25 offices after brush with permanent closure: 3 details


Greenfield, Wis.-based Advanced Pain Management has reopened nine locations after filing a layoff notice with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development in April, Milwaukee Business Journal reports.

Three things to know:

1. Five Wisconsin locations and one in Mankato, Minn., opened their doors between May 12 and June 1, after COVID-19-related shutdowns forced 42 furloughs across Advanced Pain Management's 25 locations.

2. Although Advanced Pain Management received a $408,511 grant through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act and $379,598 through CMS' Accelerated and Advance Payment Program expansion, the practice will permanently lay off six employees from its corporate office.

3. Advanced Pain Management is "taking a phased approach" to reopening the rest of its health centers. In a statement to Milwaukee Business Journal, the practice said it is optimistic about its future despite earlier concerns about permanent closure.
