Each year, The American Physical Therapy Association’s (APTA) Private Practice Section (PPS) grants the Jayne L. Snyder Practice Award to the single Physical Therapy practice that best represents and contributes to the physical therapy industry. And that was us!
Long story short: because our staff is focused on impacting lives, we have been named the nation’s top physical therapy practice!
This all comes on the heels of us receiving a year’s worth of unprecedented recognition. But this, the most coveted annual private practice award in the industry, takes the cake!
The award itself is called “the Jayne L. Snyder Practice Award,” and our co-founder, Dan Rootenberg, PT, DPT, CSCS received the award in front of his cheering executive team and hundreds of industry professionals at the PPS Annual Conference in Las Vegas on October 22nd.
Here is the video that the APTA used to introduce us at the Conference:
The PPS receives multiple Jayne L. Snyder award nominees each year from the more than 50,000 private practices across the country. These nominees are nominated by both peers in the industry, and by the PPS governing body. After review by a committee, the award is ultimately given to the only private practice that has shown it’s made the largest impact on, and increased the visibility of, the entire nation’s physical therapy industry.
As the winner, SPEAR exhibited superior achievement in the following areas when compared to other physical therapist—owned businesses throughout the country:
1) Demonstrated innovative operations and involvement in specific projects that promoted a positive image for the industry.
2) Had positively affected the shape, scope and the quality of industry businesses.
3) Contributed to the overall and enduring development of physical therapy as a caring profession.
4) Demonstrated a commitment to mentoring.
As he was handing out the award to us, APTA President Terry Brown said, “SPEAR PT has made a uniquely positive impact on the profession of physical therapy. SPEAR has elevated the reputation and exposure of the private practice physical therapist on a state, regional, and national level.”
We are honored to receive this award, and it has inspired us to continue to be the best representative of the industry we can possibly be. We hope you see that shining through each and every employee and interaction we have with each and every one of you.
