ProRehab is proud to announce that Pat Wempe, DPT, SCS, CEO of ProRehab, was recently recognized as one of the Tri-State area’s Health Care Heroes by the Evansville Courier & Press.
In addition to his role as therapist and CEO of ProRehab, Wempe has served as a part of the University of Evansville medical staff since 1990, provides medical support to the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation, and is heavily involved with community events like the Evansville Half Marathon.

“His interest in rehabilitation in sports has been the driver in keeping Evansville on the forefront of health care. ProRehab, Pat and his employees are doing research into patient care and rehabilitation that is recognized around the world,” friend and colleague Dr. Andrew Saltzman told the Evansville Courier & Press.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as a Health Care Hero in my hometown,” said Wempe. “It means a lot to me to be able to give back to the community and I feel fortunate to have employees and peers that share the same passion for keeping our city healthy and injury-free. I look forward to treating and preventing injuries in local athletes of all ages for many years to come.”
