Physical Therapists Clinic Ltd., a rehabilitation therapy business with locations in Jacksonville and Beardstown, will become part of Passavant Rehabilitation Services Feb. 1.

“This acquisition allows us to provide increased rehabilitation opportunities for the patients in our service area as we continue our mission to improve the health of the people and communities we serve,” said Harry Schmidt, president and CEO.

Physical Therapists Clinic Ltd. owner Curt Keim said, “I began my career at Passavant. It’s good to come home again.” Trevor Huffman, Passavant’s director of rehabilitation services, added, “We will maintain the strengths of their clinic and combine this with the strengths and resources of Passavant to improve both facilities’ ability to meet the rehabilitation needs of the community.”

As part of the acquisition, the Physical Therapists Clinic will change its name. The Jacksonville facility, located at 1440 W. Walnut St., Suite 2, will become Passavant Rehab Clinic-Jacksonville, while the Beardstown facility, located at 400 S. State St., will become Passavant Rehab Clinic-Beardstown. Current employees of Physical Therapists Clinic Ltd. will remain at both facilities.

The phone number for Passavant Rehab Clinic-Jacksonville will change to 479-5670, while the number for Passavant Rehab Clinic-Beardstown remains 323-4001. The current Jacksonville number will roll over to the new number during the transition.

Passavant Rehabilitation Services, located on the Passavant campus, provides comprehensive services including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, pediatric rehabilitation, sports medicine and a lymphedema clinic. Rehabilitation and aquatic therapy services are also provided at Passavant’s facility at 901 W. Morton St., in the Lincoln Square Shopping Center.
