Welcome to Professional Therapy Services, Inc. Founded in 1981 with a mission of providing exceptional therapy services.
ne word to best describe the services provided by
Professional Therapy Services, Inc. would be “flexible.”
Flexible in the array of services offered, flexible in where the
services are provided and flexible in the times they are available.
With the Corporate Office located in Belleville, IL and our
Regional Office in Peoria, PTS offers Physical, Occupational and Speech
Therapy programs and services for hospitals, home health agencies,
long-term care facilities, and in outpatient clinics. PTS offers the full
spectrum of rehabilitation services within the continuum of care.
"When Assistance Is Needed"
Together, the Central and Southern Regions of PTS employ nearly 350
Therapists, Therapy Assistants and support personnel. When PTS
President Mike Riley and Regional Director, Cindy Rankin developed the
initial business plan, they envisioned the delivery of services in a number of
different settings. Traditionally, when therapists completed training, they
were employed in rehabilitation departments within hospitals and nursing
homes. Their desire was to establish a group practice which would provide
diversity in the number of programs and services offered.
In June of 1981 we opened our first outpatient clinic in Morton, IL. From that point
forward, PTS has seen steady growth in patient volume and in the number
of employees. With business growth, came the challenge of recruiting
qualified therapists of which there is a shortage. PTS has met this challenge
by offering flexible work schedules and part-time hours for our personnel.
There are a number of different therapy services available in Central Illinois.
Many are physician-owned or are part of a corporation. PTS is unique in that
we are a therapist-owned-and-operated company offering a full array of services
within the continuum of care.
PTS’ Speech-Language Services include evaluation and treatment for speech
disorders resulting from traumatic brain injuries, stroke,
Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s,
multiple sclerosis and other degenerative diseases. Speech fluency,
visual perceptual deficits, swallowing dysfunctions, voice disorders, and cognitive linguistic deficits are also treated.
"Low Vision Rehabilitation"
PTS’ Occupational Therapy services include scapular stabilization, static/dynamic splinting, ADL retaining,
Low Vision Rehabilitation, and use of adaptive equipment.
We also participate in the offering of Parkinson’s, Geriatric and Wheelchair Clinics
with an emphasis on a multi-disciplinary approach to providing therapy services.
PTS’ Educational Programs are unique to the area.
We were one of the first to run our own education division.
The vision was to have a state certified, continuing education program for therapy professionals.
Now, we bring in national speakers for training seminars so all area therapists can benefit.
Whether utilizing PTS’ services through a hospital, nursing home, outpatient clinic or other setting,
you will receive personalized service with a personal touch and an opportunity to experience why we say…“for those who expect more...”
