PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ascend — a two-day event focused on business best practices for physical and occupational therapists — has added a Practice of the Year Award to its menu of offerings. The award, presented by event sponsor WebPT, will honor a rehab therapy private practice that has demonstrated exemplary business success over the last year. The award ceremony will occur during the conference, set to take place Sept. 18-19, 2015, in Chicago.
Ascend’s panel of award judges — comprised of leading rehab therapy industry experts — will analyze applicants’ performance with respect to a set list of criteria, including business achievements, goals and methodology. The winner will receive a cash prize of $1,500 and a full-page ad in PPS Impact Magazine.
“There are so many PT and OT private practices out there achieving greatness every single day, despite the changing climate of healthcare. This award allows us to put the spotlight on a practice that is truly breaking the business mold,” said Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC/L, who is the founder and COO of WebPT. “We hope that by showcasing business innovation in the rehab therapy space — by showing what is possible — we can inspire the entire industry to start thinking outside of the traditional model.”
In addition to the award, Ascend will feature a variety of educational sessions designed to help physical and occupational therapy professionals learn practical business tactics they can use to capitalize on the evolving healthcare environment.
