PT of the City will take over the entire second floor of the four-story building, while Royal Care will continue to use the third floor for its own operations. Royal Care also runs its U@Perks program, a health space dedicated to healthcare workers, in other parts of the building.

PT of the City provides services that include sports, orthopedic, stroke and neurological rehabilitation and its Longwood location will be its Bronx debut.
