Target Clinic Identified for Expansion into Chicago Market
BRENTWOOD, Tenn, March 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IMAC Holdings, In c . (Nasdaq: IMAC), a provider of Innovative Medical Advancements and Care, specializing in regenerative rehabilitation orthopedic treatments without the use of surgery or opioids, announces that Mike Ditka has been engaged to serve as brand ambassador for the Company’s planned expansion into the Chicago market.
Mr. Ditka, a three-time Super Bowl champion and 11-year coach of the Chicago Bears, joins other IMAC iconic brand ambassadors including Tony Delk, Ozzie Smith and David Price to bring awareness to IMAC’s conservative approach to treating mobility impairments. Mr. Ditka, known as “Iron Mike” because of his upbringing in a Pennsylvania steel town, is one of only two people to win an NFL title as a player, an assistant coach and a head coach, and one of only four people to win a championship as head coach of a team he played for previously.
Commenting on his affiliation with IMAC, Coach Ditka said, “My athletic career has been incredibly fulfilling, but it left me with many aches and pains. IMAC’s service offering is custom-made for patients like me, and being a part of IMAC allows me to help the public understand that there are therapeutic alternatives for mobility impairments that do not involve surgery and the attendant use of opioids.”
“IMAC is delighted and proud to add another Hall of Fame athlete to our team. Coach Ditka has a storied history in Chicago that we believe will resonate with local residents looking to improve their quality-of-life through non-surgical sports medicine solutions,” said Jeff Ervin, chief executive officer of IMAC Holdings.
IMAC Holdings has identified merger targets in the Chicago market and has recently executed a preliminary, non-binding letter of intent to acquire a practice management group. The acquisition is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2019, pending an audit, board approval, and final terms.
“Chicago is an excellent market for IMAC. We anticipate that our self-insured and corporate partnerships division will see tremendous opportunities in the large Chicago market. IMAC has the ability to contract directly with employers to deliver a conservative care alternative to expensive orthopedic surgeries. We anticipate delivering non-surgical rehabilitation solutions to individuals and companies from multiple Mike Ditka Center facilities in the Chicago area,” Mr. Ervin added.
