Last week 35 of RehabVisions’ hospital and clinic rehab directors descended upon Omaha for our annual meeting. The time together started with a casual Sunday dinner to welcome everyone back, introduce new managers, and allow our more seasoned directors to catch up with each other.
Focus areas for this year’s meeting were communication, compliance and clinical excellence. Monday’s main speaker was Greg Paris, a former hospital CEO and client of RehabVisions. He spoke about leadership and customer service. “Greg was the perfect presenter for this group,” Director of Operations Tracy Milius, OT said. “He is a dynamic speaker who already understands our business. He was able to give meaningful insight and real examples related to our industry.”
Other highlights from the meeting included the introduction of RehabVisions’ new employee intranet called RVNet and a visit to the Home Office. The group enjoyed seeing the unique building and putting faces to the people they interact with throughout the year.
Many managers commented on the more comfortable tone of this year’s meeting. Director of Operations Steve Kinkead, SLP had a possible explanation for this. “We’re doing a better job of educating our managers and getting them information throughout the year,” he said. “It used to be we had them in town once a year, and we had a ton of things to throw at them. Now we can focus on leadership training and let them do more learning and sharing from each other.”
