Striving for Excellence

High standards matter. That’s why we recognize and reward our experts for their passion and commitment to delivering exceptional patient care and for their focus on our core values. Our clinicians’ excellence, in turn, generates recognition for Athletico.

Our focus on patients, core values and positive work environment, along with our dedication to quality, are recognized within the healthcare industry and the communities where we work. As we continue to grow, it’s important for us to build upon our strong foundation. “Our success is based on the strength of our staff,” Athletico Founder and Executive Chairman Mark Kaufman said. “Their role is vital to provide the ultimate customer service experience. It’s so rewarding to watch how these values define our culture and create the best place to work.”
