OnPoint Physical Therapy opened its doors on April of 2017; and, is owned and operated by the local CEO, Christopher (Chris) Shannon, PT, MPT, DPT.
Chris graduated from the University of Washington in 2001 and went to work for Apple Physical Therapy, the largest physical therapist-owned practice in the state of Washington at that time. During his 13 years with the company, he worked in a multitude of clinical and administrative positions. While posted at the position of Vice President of Clinical Operations, he decided to further his education and graduated with his transitional DPT in Executive Private Practice Management from Evidence in Motion in 2014. Apple Physical Therapy was soon bought by a much larger private equity-owned physical therapy company. After a small stint with the new organization, he decided to make his exit. It was time to start down a new path in his career …private practice ownership!
With his current education in executive private practice management, Chris understood the current issues that face owners of private practice and knew most are unsuccessful in their venture. Eventually, these PT practice owners end up selling or closing their doors. He knew it would be nearly impossible to do on his own.
Chris reached out to his long-time friend and fellow classmate from the University of Washington, Ryan Robinson, PT, MPT, DPT, and his business partner Blaine Stimac, MSPT, co-owners of Health and Rehab Solutions (HRS). HRS is extremely passionate about the preservation of physical therapist-owned private practice and selectively partners with those who share the same passion. They provide administration and educational tools for private practice success and growth. Understanding and witnessing the success other private practice owners have had in partnering with HRS, it was a no brainer! Chris, partnered with HRS and OnPoint Physical Therapy was born!
With two disabled parents, Chris has been passionate about helping people since he was a youngster and always knew the service profession was for him. Onpoint was started with the purpose of helping as many people as possible and to assist them in their attainment of the highest level of function.
Chris has a strong sense of community and is dedicated to serving the people and communities where we live and work. OnPoint is excited with the opportunity it will provide to our many employees as we grow! We team up with those who have the same strong desire and purpose and match our company values. Our employees do great things every day.
