Great news! Ascend—the ultimate business summit for rehab therapists—is back and better than ever before. Last year, the sixth-annual event took us to the Land of 10,000 Lakes (that’s Minnesota, don’tcha know!) for two incredibly educational (and incredibly fun) days…
This year’s Ascend business summit heralded a lot of exciting discussions around innovation and the future of rehab therapy. And because of this, we at WebPT feel it’s important to recognize outstanding clinics that embody the spirit of evolving the profession—no matter what obstacles stand before them.
Each year, WebPT hosts the annual Ascend business summit, and to put a cap on the two-day event, we honor one practice with our Practice of the Year award. The 2019 recipient earned this honor by proving that delivering personalized, innovative care and being a multi-practice organization are not mutually exclusive. With 51 clinic sites (and counting), MedStar Rehabilitation Network, our 2019 Practice of the Year recipient, provides services across Maryland, Washington, DC, and northern Virginia.
Right now, our office is buzzing with excitement: in less than a month, we’ll gather in Minneapolis for our sixth annual Ascend business summit. And if Ascends of years past were any indication, we’re in for some seriously inspiring sessions and motivating discussions.

I don’t know about you, but I love the power of a meaningful quote: it can be interpreted in many ways, and it offers new insights every time you read it. That’s why, when I was at Ascend, I couldn’t help but think of some of my favorite quotes. And it’s these three in particular that perfectly frame my experience and represent my hopes for the future of our profession:
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.
What goes into planning the premier rehab therapy business summit? Well, it takes faith, trust, and just a little bit of pixie dust. Okay, so maybe that’s how Peter Pan helps his peeps fly. But even if hosting a successful event doesn’t require pixie dust, happy thoughts—and a ton of hard work—do help us plan.
