The Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers are growing at a rapid pace as the latest member of the Arthur M. Blank Family of Businesses enters its fifth year of operation.
AFPTC has now opened its 10th center in that time — the newest is in Midtown Atlanta.
Formerly Body Mechanics Physical Therapy, the Midtown AFPTC is on the 17th floor of Emory Midtown Hospital, overlooking the Georgia Dome.
The newest location joins what is becoming a long list of centers located within two hours of Atlanta. Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers are currently located in Athens, Columbus, Dacula, Jasper, Marietta (two locations), Midtown, Snellville, Suwanee and Winder.
"I am very excited personally and for our team to join the Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers," Midtown center director David Mesnick said. "This is a highly reputable company that will enable us to have additional clinical training opportunities, improved systems and additional support to help us expand upon the strong foundation we have built in Midtown for our therapists and our patients alike.
"I also look forward to working closely with my new colleagues that are all recognized as top clinicians in their markets."
The Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers, as a part of the Arthur M. Blank Family of Businesses, also shares many similar officers with the Atlanta Falcons. One of which is Greg Beadles — who is both the President of AFPTC and the Senior Vice President/Chief Financial Officer of the Atlanta Falcons.
With approximately 70 team members, AFPTC treats everyone from youth to seniors and have performed more than 130,000 visits since its inception and all center directors have remained with AFPTC since the doors opened in October 2007.
AFPTC offers physical therapy, occupational and hand therapy, industrial rehabilitation, athletic training services, performance enhancement services, aquatic therapy at select locations and therapeutic massage at select locations. The centers also accept more than 30 insurance plans and offer extended hours to patients before and after work.
"David and his partners have done an extraordinary job building a center that offers exceptional clinical care and customer service to their patients," Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers Chief Operating Officer Dan Gordon said. "After my first meeting with David, I knew he was going to be an excellent fit. Then, after meeting the full Midtown team, I knew that everyone involved shared our values and passion to offer the very best to those we serve.
"We look forward to making additional investments in this center and also appreciate that this office overlooks the Georgia Dome. This is our 10th center and this would not be possible without the support of Mr. Blank, the Atlanta Falcons and all those team members, patients and physicians that have placed their trust in us since 2007."
Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers are designed to be state-of-the-art and welcoming to all patients. With comfortable reception areas and friendly team members, patients are treated to the top clinical and fitness environment.
Working closely with the Atlanta Falcons has kept Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers on the leading edge in delivering the best available technology and evidence-based techniques.
Each therapist is Atlanta Falcons Certified and receives ongoing training from leading medical professionals and research institutions. Combining attentive care with technical excellence, the AFPTC highly-trained staff delivers a customized plan to support recovery and help patients reach their physical potential.
"I would like to thank all of our patients, referring physicians, and team members that have enabled AFPTC to reach 10 centers," Beadles said. "We look forward to continuing to grow over the years ahead and to staying true to our mission of providing the finest physical therapy experience to all who trust in us."
