Get to Know Our Story

WESTARM is a small, family owned, physical therapy company located outside of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.  We have been dedicated to serving our patients and community for nearly 40 years. 

Our company was founded in 1983 by Abraham Jacob, PT, as a Medicare certified rehabilitation agency. At that time, our original outpatient office was opened on Longfellow Street in Vandergrift, PA and relocated in 1985 to Weinels Crossroads in neighboring Allegheny Township due to the successful growth and the need for additional space.


In 1991, Abraham’s son, Brian R Jacob, took over WESTARM as President and began to expand outpatient locations and to diversify services to better serve the rehabilitation needs of our communities. Today, WESTARM is the largest outpatient rehabilitation provider in the Alle-Kiski area and has been recognized as the “Best Physical Therapy Facility” in the VND Readers Choice Awards survey numerous times.

In order to meet the growing demand for homebound patients, WESTARM Homecare was started in 2010.  This development allows our licensed therapists to visit patients in their homes after a hospital admission or recovering from surgery. Our homecare staff can progress and easily transition patients from their homes into our local outpatient facilities when they are ready.

Since inception, we have been dedicated to providing superior quality care in a time efficient manner to restore our patients to their highest functional level. Our courteous and knowledgeable staff strives for complete customer satisfaction.
