Athletico Earns 2012 Practice of the Year Honors
According to the cover story featured in the December 17 edition of the magazine, continuing to grow with real diversification, while balancing patient care and physical therapist job satisfaction are some of the attributes that landed Athletico with the top honors. Other key differentiators discussed are customer service, the company’s relationships with professional organizations such as all of Chicago’s major league sports teams, U.S. Soccer and the Joffrey Ballet, and Athletico’s partnership with Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes, which measures patient outcomes and satisfaction.
