Pivot Physical Therapy Named WebPT Ascend 2016 Practice of the Year

This East Coast Practice Demonstrated Exceptional Leadership in Its Commitment to Wellness, Patient Health and the Communities It Serves

PHOENIX, AZ–(Marketwired – Sep 19, 2016) –  WebPT announces Pivot Physical Therapy as the winner of its 2016 Ascend Practice of the Year Award. The winner was revealed at the third-annual Ascend summit, which took place Sept. 9-10, 2016, in Fort Worth, Texas, and focused on business and regulatory issues — including payment reform, marketing automation and commoditization of the profession — for outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapists. Each year, this award honors a rehab therapy private practice that demonstrated exemplary business achievements and success over the previous year.

Pivot Physical Therapy — which boasts more than 120 outpatient therapy locations throughout the East Coast — was selected based on the practice’s overall growth as well as its achievements in helping patients, promoting and maintaining company culture, participating in community outreach and contributing to the advancement of the rehab therapy industry.

“We are incredibly proud to be named the 2016 Ascend Physical Therapy Practice of the Year,” said Harris Thompson, CEO of Pivot Physical Therapy. “This award recognizes the motto that our professionals bring to life every day: It’s all about the patient experience. Helping people feel their best — to move, bend, twist, and stretch with pain free mobility — is what inspires and drives the outstanding team members who make up Pivot. We love helping people feel better. And when you do what you love — and you’re good at it — you get noticed. We are thrilled that Ascend noticed, and we’re honored to receive this prestigious award.”

“From the time our patients first walk in the door until their last visit and beyond, our single thought is about how to help improve their health,” said Brian Hoy, PT, CMP, FMSC, Director of Clinical Excellence at Pivot Physical Therapy. “Our physical therapists and care specialists are, quite simply, the best in the industry. They dedicate their professional lives to other people’s well-being. Their commitment and drive inspire us — and inspire our patients. I’m extremely gratified and greatly honored that Ascend recognized our quality work and named Pivot the 2016 Practice of the Year.”

The Practice of the Year Award was open to all private practice outpatient physical, occupational and/or speech therapy clinics that had at least one clinic owner or staff member in attendance at the Ascend 2016 summit.

“We had so many amazing applicants this year, which made it tough for our judges to choose just one winner,” said Heidi Jannenga, the president and co-founder of WebPT. “Pivot Physical Therapy stood out for their innovation and deep dedication to all of their stakeholders — from employees to patients. They’ve achieved phenomenal growth over the last few years, which is directly tied to their commitment to culture and clinical excellence. The company also invests substantially in their clinicians, offering post-graduate education and certification, which has enabled them to continually improve the clinical services and care they provide to their patients. Pivot Physical Therapy is truly raising the bar on what it means to make patient-centered care a priority.”

Pivot Physical Therapy was awarded $1,500, one full-page ad in Impact magazine and a free month of UpDoc Media digital marketing.
