Celebrating our 25th anniversary of serving clients throughout Iowa, Northern Iowa Therapy began as a dream to provide therapy services to rural communities and has soared beyond all expectations to be the leader in rehab therapy services throughout our region of the state.
In 2018, Northern Iowa Therapy was rebranded as NIT. We continue to expand to bring our therapy services to hospitals and nursing homes, assisted living facilities, industries, schools and day cares throughout the state. In addition to in-home appointments when and where possible, we also staff specialty clinics in the areas of spinal rehab, hand therapy, lymphedema and low vision skills.
Started in 1993 by Owner and Occupational Therapist Jean Harrington-Britt, what had originally been just a part-time gig for her quickly expanded to a full-service therapy business with 150+ employees in 17 counties and 40 locations.
“I started out by myself as an Occupational Therapist, and I really thought that’s where the need was at the time,” said Jean. “But then it became clear there was a huge need for therapy services in rural Iowa. I love working in the rural Iowa communities and bringing rehab opportunities to the patients, so they don’t have to travel so far.”
