Recruiting Manager Chris Marx and Recruiter John LaPesh represented RehabVisions last week at the APTA Combined Sections Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. They were excited to meet with hundreds of therapy students, practicing physical therapists and physical therapy assistants from the Midwest and other states where we provide our contract therapy services.

Cariant Health Partners, RehabVisions’ sister travel company, started in 2001, mainly to assist in staffing RehabVisions’ short-term needs. It has since grown to 17 home office staff, and they recently added a nursing division.
The relationship between RehabVisions and Cariant has continued to strengthen. When dealing with Cariant’s traveling therapists, their recruiters lean on RV’s expertise for assistance in clinical and compliance questions. “Having so many professionals in the therapy business just upstairs from us helps immensely,” Division Manager Tracey Duke said. “It’s definitely what sets up apart from our competitors.”
In July of 2016, RehabVisions began a new contract at a critical access hospital, expanding into California for the first time. We’re happy to say that this partnership came by way of an ongoing relationship with Hospital CEO Steve Stark.
The hospital’s rehab department had become stagnant and, having worked with RehabVisions at two other locations, Steve believed the best way to overcome their obstacles was to find a strong partner. “I had experienced similar issues in a couple of other places in the past, and I was confident that RehabVisions could come in and take over in a very good, community-focused way.”

January is National Mentoring Month and the perfect time to review our stance on the topic. We hire new therapy graduates throughout the year, and mentorship has always been an important point of discussion in both the interview and decision-making process.

As the focus of healthcare shifts toward wellness and prevention, it’s important for us as healthcare professionals to acknowledge and address this change in our practice. Our scope of practice is incredibly wide! It’s easy to narrow our own focus to just diagnosis and treatment when presented with patient after patient already diagnosed with something preventable, or with something that could have been delayed.
