Case study

Apple Physical Therapy has been acquired by ATI Physical Therapy

The owners of Apple Physical Therapy (Apple), based in Puyallup, Washington, have sold the company to ATI Physical Therapy (ATI), a comprehensive orthopedic rehabilitation provider, for an undisclosed consideration.

Apple is one of Washington State’s leading providers of physical, massage, occupational and hand therapy rehabilitation services. Operating locally since 1984, Apple has grown to include 24 clinics, located throughout the Puget Sound, dedicated to delivering superior patient care, and committed to serving the local communities where patients live and work.

ATI’s resources will allow us to outpace the rapidly changing healthcare landscape, improve treatment offerings, and retain our local commitment to our communities,” said Randy Johnson, founder, President and CEO of Apple Physical Therapy. “Everything good about Apple will simply be enhanced and maximized, and the bottom line is better care for our patients.” Mr. Johnson will remain with ATI Physical Therapy as Vice President of the Western Region.

With corporate headquarters located in Bolingbrook, Illinois, ATI is the largest physical therapy practice under one brand in the nation and currently operates more than 300 clinics in eleven states. ATI specializes in research-based physical therapy, work conditioning/hardening, functional capacity evaluations, sports medicine and performance, and women's health.

Jason Hafner, Senior Vice President of Operations at ATI, is excited to welcome Randy and the Apple team to ATI. “We have been in discussions with Apple for some time as their culture and mission is very similar to ATI’s. Adding Apple to our team is a natural fit for ATI and our expansion in the Pacific north-west.”

Oaklins' team in Seattle acted as the exclusive advisor to Apple Physical Therapy in the sale of the company to ATI Physical Therapy.
