Athletico Iowa Region Places in the Top 50 for 2015 Top Places to Work

Posted on

Oak Brook, IL—Athletico Physical Therapy is very proud to announce that the Iowa region has ranked in the top 50 companies for 2015 Top Workplaces by The Des Moines Register. Genuine core values, leadership development and a great work environment are just some of the attributes employees noted that put Athletico Physical Therapy, formerly Accelerated, at the top of the list.

“We are excited to be selected as one of Iowa’s top workplaces. This is especially an honor to us because those voting were our employees,” said Scott Straub, Vice President of Iowa Clinical Operations.

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 30 major publishing partners and recognizes a list of 150 National Top Workplaces.  Over the past year, more than 4,000 organizations and 1 in every 100 employees in the U.S. have turned to WorkplaceDynamics to better understand what’s on the minds of their employees.

“Our success is the direct result of our employees’ abilities to extend Athletico’s core values beyond our daily responsibilities,” said Mark Kaufman, Athletico founder and President and Olds, Iowa native.  “I am honored to work with our great team who push, assist, and advance our culture and work environment on a daily basis.  Athletico has a long runway, and I believe we can only get better from here.”

Athletico recently became one of the largest physical therapy providers in the Midwest when it acquired Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers.  It now has more than 330 locations in nine states, including 25 in Iowa. All Accelerated facilities will be rebranded as Athletico in the coming months creating a unified brand and reaching a greater number of patients with a wider range of services.

The Des Moines Register published the complete list of Top Workplaces on Sunday, September 13th. For more information on this year’s Top Workplace in the medium company category, visit
