Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl cut the ribbon Thursday evening to mark the opening of the ATI Physical Therapy clinic at 805 Davis St. in downtown Evanston.
Founded in 1996, ATI Physical Therapy is a comprehensive orthopedic rehabilitation provider, specializing in research-based physical therapy, work conditioning/hardening, functional capacity evaluations, sports medicine and women's health.
Based in Bolingbrook, ATI has grown to over 141 clinics in six states: Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
As ATI continues to expand, downtown Evanston was an easy choice because of its "unique mix of businesses and its diverse population of families, seniors and young professionals," Jim Allivato, ATI's senior regional director, said.
Allivato added that ATI has a dedicated in-house research department to improve rehabilitation outcomes through basic science, translational research, and evidence-based medicine.
The Evanston clnic is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Its location, in the Sherman Plaza complex, was formerly the site of a Washington Mutual bank branch that closed after the bank was acquired by Chase.
