ATI Physical Therapy announced today that Labeed Diab stepped into the role of Chief Executive Officer for the organization as of February 11, 2019. Labeed comes to ATI from Humana where he served as President of Humana Pharmacy Solutions. He will take the reins from Al Hamood, acting CEO, who will now serve as President of the organization working in the Office of the CEO.

“We are excited to welcome Labeed to ATI’s family. He brings a unique experience to our organization of successfully growing and marrying consumer retail and healthcare operations,” said David Swift, ATI Chairman. “In the dynamic world of physical therapy and consumer choice, Labeed has conceived and implemented visionary, customer-centric initiatives to penetrate and grow market share in highly competitive industries, like physical therapy. He will be a great addition to the organization and will help shepherd ATI into its next successful chapter.”

While President at Humana Pharmacy Solutions, Labeed was responsible for clinical, mail order, retail, specialty and service operations as well as contracting, sales and pharmaceutical sourcing. Prior to Humana, Labeed served as Chief Operating Officer of Brookdale Senior Living where he oversaw operations, sales, marketing, dining, home-health and hospice services offerings.

He also served as Regional Vice President of Aramark’s Health Care Division.

“I am honored to be coming to an organization like ATI with such an excellent track record of growth and a strong patient-first philosophy,” said Diab. “This is a proud legacy and a testament to ATI’s leadership and employees as well as an example of how outstanding customer service can be a differentiator in retail healthcare. I look forward to carrying on and adding my voice to the ATI tradition.”

With a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy and a minor in Business Administration, Diab already has deep roots in the Chicagoland area, serving on the Board of Directors for Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.
