BOLINGBROOK, Ill., Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ATI Physical Therapy, the nation's largest physical therapy practice under one brand, today announces the addition of Sports & Physical Therapy Associates (SPTA) and Attain Therapy + Fitness to the ATI family. The partnership adds 29 outpatient physical therapy clinics in the state of Massachusetts, elevating ATI's national coverage to 17 states.
"Our expansion into the state of Massachusetts with these two well-respected practices reinforces our service commitment to the industry and our role as a leader in physical therapy," said Dylan Bates, CEO of ATI Physical Therapy. "Together, we will build upon their great service history, and look for additional opportunities that will allow us to positively impact more lives in the communities we serve."
SPTA is a prominent provider of physical therapy in the New England area, devoted to leading edge injury detection, post-injury rehabilitation and sports specific training. With a focus on patient-centered care, the team at SPTA utilizes evidence-based therapy techniques and exercise progressions to bring a patient from post-injury, through rehabilitation, to the final sports-specific phase. Sports & Physical Therapy Associates was advised by Provident Healthcare Partners, LLC, from Boston, MA on the partnership.
Attain Therapy + Fitness was founded in 2001 by three local therapists—Terry Ditmar, PT, CSCS, Jim Biron, PT, CVT and MaryLynn Jacobs, MS OTR/L, CHT. With decades of first-hand clinical and operations experience, plus deep-rooted relationships within the medical community, they established Attain with a vision to offer patients an incomparable experience with exceptional care. Today, Attain Therapy + Fitness is an area leader specializing in physical therapy, specialized hand therapy, sports and fitness training and other innovative programs for at-risk populations. Advising Attain Therapy + Fitness on the partnership was BellMark Partners, LLC, located in Boston, MA.
"Both SPTA and Attain are established leaders, and bring decades of knowledge, experience and a passion for patient-centered care with the most advanced techniques, said Brent Mack, ATI's COO. "Like ATI, they deeply understand that the patient's experience begins prior to their first visit and extends beyond the four walls of the clinic each and every day."
With exceptional, patient-centered care, trusted expertise and remarkable outcomes, the goal of ATI Physical Therapy is to exceed customer expectations—every day, in every clinic. ATI is a nationally-recognized rehabilitation provider, specializing in research-based physical therapy, workers' compensation rehab, employer worksite solutions, sports medicine, home health, and a variety of specialty therapies.
Based in Bolingbrook, Illinois, ATI is a privately held, nationally-recognized physical therapy organization with more than 500 locations in 17 states. Named "Best Physical Therapy Practice in the Nation" by ADVANCE magazine, ATI is one of the first physical therapy companies in the country to achieve URAC Core Accreditation, a mark of distinction that recognizes ATI's commitment to quality healthcare.
