$1.3 million strip mall also will be home to Orangetheory Fitness Studio

Oasis Physical Therapy has opened three offices built around the Tri-Cities in the past 15 years.

The company’s executive director and owner Mindi Irvine now is adding a fourth location, a $1.3 million building at 1020 Queensgate Drive in south Richland. The new building will be between Keene Road and Columbia Park Trail, just south of Interstate 182.

We’ve gotten to capacity at our existing locations.

“It was last year when we decided,” she said. “We were looking at how much it has grown out there. And I realized there was no physical therapy clinic out there.”

It was also time to expand, she said.

“We’ve gotten to capacity at our existing locations,” she said. “And we’re getting people telling us, ‘You should open something closer to our house.’ A lot of people like to attend physical therapy closer to where they live. It’s not like going to the doctor or the dentist, once every while. Physical therapy can be two or three times a week.”

The new building is an 8,000-square- foot strip mall with space for two other tenants. Orangetheory Fitness Studio  has plans to open in one of the spaces, Irvine said.

The fitness center franchise offers trainer-led 60-minute workouts broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training using a variety of equipment. More than 1,000 franchise licenses have been awarded and more than 500 studios are currently open.

Irvine opened the first Oasis Physical Therapy in Pasco in 2002, next to what is the Lifequest building by TRAC. It has since moved to Burden Boulevard.
