This would not be possible without the exceptional talent we have, both inside and outside the clinics, our employees’ commitment to our patients, and their willingness to consistently strive to become even better than they were yesterday.
Uniondale, NY (PRWEB) April 17, 2017
As an organization dedicated to the well-being of both patients and the employees committed to their care, Professional Physical Therapy is proud to announce it has been named one of the country’s Best Workplaces in Health Care.
Professional Physical Therapy ranked among the top 25, which is based on surveys from nearly 88,000 employees across the industry, and is the first physical therapy company to make the health care list. The results show that their team members enjoy a supportive work environment with effective communication and trust in leadership.
Employees also expressed widespread pride in their work, which reflects the organization’s commitment to exceptional patient care and the strong belief in treating the patient, and not just the injury. Professional recognizes that happy employees create positive work environments and as a result, give our patients the best possible overall experience.
Adam Elberg, Founding Partner, President and Chief Executive Officer of Professional Physical Therapy states, “On behalf of the entire Professional family, I am so incredibly proud that our company has been acknowledged this way. This would not be possible without the exceptional talent we have, both inside and outside the clinics, our employees’ commitment to our patients, and their willingness to consistently strive to become even better than they were yesterday. I am truly honored to see our company’s name among some of the largest, most prestigious healthcare companies in the entire country, and I can’t thank each and every employee enough for their honesty and support in helping us achieve one of our greatest accomplishments to date.”
Scott Cooper, Vice President of Human Resources at Professional Physical Therapy adds, “Professional Physical Therapy is first and foremost a people business. Just as many patients return to us because of the exceptional care and experience they receive, employees stay with us because of the mentoring, development and career growth opportunities that set us apart from many other organizations. Our quarterly company outings and philanthropic culture, combined with offerings such as comprehensive benefits, generous time off policies, and continuing education stipend, make Professional a great choice for high performers who want to build a rewarding career. We are extremely fortunate to have a team that embraces this culture and focuses on great patient care and outstanding clinical outcomes.”
