If you’re a therapist seeking a meaningful and rewarding career path, look no further than RehabVisions’ outpatient clinic in Hiawatha, Kansas. While metropolitan areas may be appealing at first glance, the supportive environment of this remarkable small town fosters professional growth, collaboration and a sense of community that is hard to find elsewhere.

From a tight-knit community to a vibrant and fulfilling professional environment, Hiawatha offers an extraordinary experience for aspiring therapists. Learn why Hiawatha is an ideal spot for those seeking a rewarding career in therapy.

A Welcoming Community

One of the most remarkable qualities of Hiawatha is its warm and welcoming community. Living in a small town allows you to forge deep connections with residents and build lasting relationships with both patients and colleagues. You’ll experience a strong sense of belonging where people genuinely care for one another.

The Halloween Frolic has been held annually in Hiawatha since 1914. In the early years, the children dressed in costumes and decorated their trikes and wagons — the first floats! This charming tradition has since expanded to include a Kiddie Parade in the afternoon that starts with hundreds of local children in costumes riding decorated bikes, trikes, wagons, horses and family floats. The Grand Parade in the evening includes dignitaries such as the Governor of Kansas and other community leaders, high school bands, large floats and Shrine units. This incredibly special night parade is the the oldest Halloween parade in the nation.

Our therapists get into the spirit by hosting a Shoebox Float Contest during Halloween and Sensory Santa / Sensory Easter Bunny visits during the holidays for children in the low-stress, calm and engaging environment of our clinic.

Diverse Patient Population

Contrary to popular belief, small towns like Hiawatha can offer a diverse patient population. Our therapists have the opportunity to work with patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, and treat a wide range of conditions. The variety of caseload not only enhances your skills but also adds depth to your professional life.

Professional Development

At RehabVisions in Hiawatha and nearby Netawaka, our therapists enjoy a unique level of professional development and autonomy. You’ll have the opportunity to take on more responsibilities and collaborate with our interdisciplinary team. This environment nurtures personal growth, enhances your clinical expertise and provides you with a strong foundation for your career.

Your contribution to the community’s health and well-being also allows you to make a tangible difference in the lives of the residents you serve.

Work-Life Balance

Living in a small town often translates to a healthier work-life balance. The lower cost of living and reduced commute times also contribute to a more balanced and fulfilling lifestyle.

Hiawatha offers a slower pace of life, allowing you to enjoy the simple pleasures during your downtime. Whether you prefer to explore the picturesque prairie countryside, see a movie at the local theater or dine with friends to unwind and rejuvenate —  or engage in community events like the Maple Leaf Festival, the Jingle Bell Ride and Merry and Bright Night — Hiawatha provides ample opportunities to enjoy life outside of work.


Being an integral part of Hiawatha’s close-knit community and witnessing the positive impact you have on your patients’ lives can be immensely gratifying. You’ll experience the joy of seeing your patients’ progress, celebrating their achievements and becoming an essential pillar of support in their journey towards improved health and well-being.
