ATI Physical Therapy
ATI Physical Therapy specializes in research-based physical therapy, workers’ compensation rehab, employer worksite solutions, sports medicine and a variety of specialty therapies.
“We have grown to be a large company, but strive to keep a small, family-like atmosphere in each of our clinics,” says Derek Pequette, senior regional director. “We know that our patients are taking valuable time from their day, away from their families, jobs and hobbies, and we want to provide a comfortable atmosphere for them.”
Founded in 1996, the company has expanded across the country to almost 700 clinics, 21 of which are in Northwest Indiana.
“It’s a team approach at ATI,” Pequette says. “We have everyone on board in the clinic—our drivers, our front office, rehab techs and clinicians—they all know that their job is to make each patient’s day a little bit better.”
The company also makes it a priority to invest in the communities where clinics are located. The ATI Foundation provides help to children with physical impairments, and unique to the industry, operates a dedicated in-house research department to improve rehabilitation outcomes through evidence-based medicine and research.
“Being voted Best Physical Therapy in Northwest Indiana is validation that we are doing something right for our patients,” Pequette says. “We take pride in knowing that our services are well respected in the community and we are making the commitment to continue to get better each and every day.”
