The Sports Medicine and Training Center celebrates its 20th anniversary! | Company

St. Louis, Missouri, July 19, 2022 – The Sports Medicine and Training Center (SMTC) is delighted to celebrate 20 years of operation on August 19, 2022. Since its inception, the SMTC has operated as a small family physiotherapy and physical training center.

The concept of SMTC was conceived during the summer of 2001 by its founder, Scott Van Nest. After many years of working in corporate and hospital settings, Scott wanted the opportunity to treat his patients as he saw best.

“I was looking to deal with fewer constraints on care imposed by insurers or corporate employees, who too often make medical decisions that impact patient care without properly targeting patient needs,” said Scott.

He also wanted to bring together concepts from multiple disciplines, including physical therapy, athletic training, osteopathic medicine, and exercise physiology.

“I wanted to create an integrated physical therapy and fitness/performance training system that would help my patients return to their highest possible level of functioning and participate fully in activities important to them,” Scott said.

His passion for creating a welcoming, efficient and patient-centered practice inspired Robbie Van Nest, his life, and now business partner, to embark on a mid-life career change. She left the field of biology research to become a medical office manager.

“I didn’t know anything about running a doctor’s office or running a small business and its people,” Robbie said. “It has been a lifelong challenge to learn how to do all of these things and see the effort translate into meaningful results for our patients.”

The Van Nest family feels honored and grateful to have long-standing staff who embrace the company’s philosophy as well as patients who trust them with their care and often refer friends and family.

To celebrate, SMTC is planning an Anniversary Celebration and Customer Appreciation Event to coincide with the Town of Crestwood’s 75th Anniversary Celebration Day on October 15, 2022.
