ATI Physical Therapy Expands into St. Louis Area

Monroe Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Joins ATI Physical Therapy

ATI Physical Therapy is proud to announce expansion into the Southern Illinois/St. Louis Metro East area with the acquisition of Monroe Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine, a six clinic private practice with locations in Columbia, Freeburg, Millstadt, Red Bud and Waterloo in Illinois, and Oakville in Missouri. With the addition of the Missouri location, ATI Physical Therapy now has clinics in 11 states.

“Monroe is the leader for physical therapy in the Southern Illinois/St. Louis area, and we’re excited to welcome this team to the ATI family,” said Brent Mack, Chief Clinical Operations Officer, ATI Physical Therapy. “Our expansion into this market is in an investment in the future and allows us to positively impact the lives of more individuals. With the resources and support of ATI, we will continue to provide the same great quality of care for which Monroe Physical Therapy has always been known, along with future growth throughout the Southern Illinois/St. Louis area.”

Patients can expect the same friendly faces and the same services. All of the physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, athletic trainers and staff at Monroe Physical Therapy will continue their roles with ATI. The clinics will gradually be adopting the ATI Physical Therapy name over the next few months.

“With the changes in the healthcare landscape over the past few years, I realized the need to partner, and ATI Physical Therapy is the perfect partner for Monroe Physical Therapy,” said Fred Shinn, Owner, Monroe Physical Therapy.  “Our nearly three decade history in the area, dedication to high school athletes, and commitment to wellness will be enhanced through this move.  The resources ATI brings to the table will truly allow us to take better care of each community we serve.  ATI’s commitment to our communities, our staff and their families has been nothing short of amazing!  I am excited we will serve as the platform for development of ATI Physical Therapy in Southern Illinois, St. Louis, and Missouri.”

Founded in Willowbrook, IL in 1996, ATI now has over 300 clinics in 11 states: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Tennessee and Georgia.  Named “Best Physical Therapy Practice in the Nation” by ADVANCE magazine, ATI is one of the first physical therapy companies in the country to be awarded URAC Core Accreditation, a mark of distinction that recognizes ATI’s commitment to quality health care. Unique to the industry, ATI’s dedicated in-house research department aims to improve patient outcomes through basic science, translational research, and evidence-based medicine. 

ATI’s expertly trained staff provides individualized treatment plans designed specifically to reduce pain, improve mobility, and reduce future injuries. From the first greeting to the final celebratory high five, ATI’s friendly and motivating team is determined to make every visit the highlight of a patient’s day.

To give back to the local communities where ATI patients and staff work and live, ATI established the ATI Foundation, a non-profit organization benefiting children in need of resources and funding due to physical impairments.

ATI provides complimentary injury screenings, transportation services for those with medical need, and convenient appointment times. To make an appointment call 1-855-MY-ATI-PT or visit www.atipt.com for a location near you.
