ATI Physical Therapy announces it has acquired Hope Rehab Katy in Katy, Texas, which extends its footprint into the Houston market.

The addition of Hope Rehab Katy’s two-clinic practice strengthens ATI’s Texas portfolio and builds on existing clinics in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio, the company notes in a media release.

Hope Rehab Katy has provided independent care for the Katy area since 2003. The practice started out with two employees, owners Barb and Tom Boyett, and quickly grew to employ over 30 people (including 17 therapists) today. 

“Adding Hope Rehab Katy’s locations are the perfect complement to our growing Texas footprint for physical therapy and preventative services. Hope Rehab Katy brings the highest level of patient-centered care, a wide range of specialties and services, and a mission that mirrors ATI’s. Together, we will build upon their track record of excellent care through opportunities for additional growth and extended services so we can change more lives in the communities we serve.”

— Katelyn Smith, Texas District Director with ATI

“When we first considered selling our practice, a primary consideration for us was that our employees would be better off with the new company than they were with us. From our very first meetings with ATI, we quickly discovered that they demonstrated the values and culture that we were looking for. Through the entire process, we saw this critical alignment and we are both very confident that we made the correct decision to join ATI.”  

— Barb Boyett, co-owner of Hope Rehab Katy

“ATI prides itself on our commitment to making a difference in the lives of our employees and all the patients we care for. Barb and Tom Boyett have demonstrated that same commitment for the better part of two decades. We’re thrilled at the opportunity this addition represents — not only as an expansion of ATI’s business but expanding in a way that is seamless with our mission.”

— ATI Chief Operating Officer Ray Wahl
