Ascend 2016—the ultimate rehab therapy business summit—is just a few short months away. Similar to the 2015 event, this year’s conference will give attendees the opportunity to earn CEUs, glean insights from a lineup of esteemed speakers, and network with some of the top rehab industry leaders. In addition to these benefits, though, we’re happy to continue the tradition of recognizing one deserving rehab therapy business with the Practice of the Year award.

The Award: What is It?

The Practice of the Year award is open to all private practice outpatient physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy clinics with at least one clinic owner or staff member in attendance at the Ascend 2016 summit. You might be wondering if you have to be a WebPT Member to win this award. The answer? Absolutely not, and your Membership status doesn’t affect your chances of winning, either. What does affect your chances of winning: your clinic’s performance with respect to a set list of criteria reviewed by our expert panel of judges. Here are a few examples:

  • clinic achievements,
  • clinic goals, and
  • methodology used to achieve results.
