Clinics in Hammond, Dyer and Griffith join ATI Physical Therapy

ATI Physical Therapy is increasing its presence in Northwest Indiana with the acquisition of APT PLUS, a three clinic physical therapy practice that has repeatedly been honored as the best in Northwest Indiana.

With the newly acquired clinics in Dyer, Hammond and Griffith, ATI will soon have five facilities in Northwest Indiana.

“As ATI expands into Indiana, we are excited to welcome the staff of APT PLUS. We look forward to integrating the best practices of APT PLUS and enhancing services to provide our new patients in northwest Indiana with the highest quality of care in a friendly environment,” said Greg Steil, CEO, ATI Physical Therapy.

ATI Physical Therapy is a leading provider of rehabilitative, research-based services in physical therapy, work conditioning/hardening, functional capacity evaluations, and sports medicine. ATI, with corporate offices in Bolingbrook, Illinois, currently operates over 110 clinics in six states: Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

Unique in the industry, ATI services include a research-based F.I.R.S.T ™ work conditioning/hardening program and an in-house internationally recognized research department dedicated to evidence-based treatment. Patients enjoy state-of-the-art facilities, comprehensive and individualized rehabilitation, appointments within 24 hours, extended hours, and transportation services.

“In my search for a physical therapy company that could continue the mission of providing the highest level of personal treatment, ATI has by far distinguished itself a leader in the industry by offering superior patient care and unparalleled customer service,” said Mike Vander Woude, the founder of APT PLUS.

Mark Schodrof, PT COMT, CSCS, will serve as Regional Director of Northwest Indiana. Schodrof, a graduate of Midwestern University, is a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist, as well as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist. He has been a dedicated employee of ATI for the past five years.

The three facilities in Dyer (1100 Joliet Street), Hammond (7435 Indianapolis) and Griffith (217 North Broad Street) will officially open as ATI clinics on Monday, June 20, 2011.

ATI has two additional Indiana locations, 165th Street in Hammond and the clinic in Munster, located at 300 Ridge Road, will open later this summer.
