It is no surprise 2020 was a challenging year for everyone. Despite the sacrifices and challenges faced by our team, we remained focused on quality care, better outcomes and redefining excellence. Thanks to our team’s commitment we have navigated this tricky year with some positive changes.
We acquired Pinnacle Therapy Services and added four new Missouri clinics:
- Platte City, Missouri
- Cameron, Missouri
- Gladstone, Missouri (effective 2/1/21)
- Tiffany Springs, Missouri (also effective 2/1/21)
As part of that transition, we also welcomed eight new members to the ARC Physical Therapy+ family.
And this year brought us five new partners.
“We are thrilled to welcome five new partners to our leadership team,” Ben Peterson, PT, Chief Operations Officer, Partner, shared.
“Each of these team members have proven themselves as resilient and resolute and bring tremendous value to our organization.”
