Rancho Wellness, the 21st Senate District's Small Business of the Month for May

Palmdale - Senator Scott Wilk (R-Antelope Valley) honors local small business, Rancho Wellness, as his Small Business of the Month. Each month Wilk selects a local business that offers outstanding service and has an exemplary commitment to the community. This month the honor goes to Rancho Wellness.

“Congratulations to Gabriela and Marcelo Cena on operating such a fantastic resource for our community,” said Wilk. “The caring, hands-on approach offered at Rancho Wellness helps patients navigate some really trying situations more easily. Thank you for all you do.”

Small businesses, such as Rancho Wellness, are the economic driver of California’s economy. In fact, two out of three Californians are employed by a small business and almost 97 percent of all businesses in California have 49 or fewer employees.”

Rancho Wellness Center was founded as Antelope Valley Physical Therapy (A.V.P.T) in 2000. Owners Gabriela Cena Vodanovic and Marcelo Cena have been serving the Antelope Valley area personally as well as professionally, offering free swim therapy for seniors as well as sponsoring and volunteering for many organizations in the region.

“Gaby and Marcelo go the extra mile for patients in need of additional help. They make it a point to participate in our local Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Arthritis Foundations,” continued Wilk. 

 “We are honored to receive this award. Helping people feel better is so important to quality of life. Whether they are clients or not taking care of people’s needs is just part of what Rancho Wellness is all about,” said owner, Marcelo Cena. “Thank you to all of our patients, our staff and the community for making Rancho Wellness the business that it is today.”

Rancho Wellness Center is a 5200 sq. ft. facility designed under the concept of a Wellness Center within a pleasant, comfortable environment to provide for patients and clients. Treatment rooms accommodate individual needs and the open floor plan assists therapists in supervising clients.
