A news release from WebPT recently announced that the 2-day event Ascend, which focuses on business best practices for physical and occupational therapists, has added a Practice of the Year Award to its offerings.

The release notes that WebPT, an event sponsor, will present the award. The award is intended to recognize a rehab therapy private practice that has demonstrated exemplary business success during the last year. The award ceremony is slated to occur during the conference September 18 to 19 in Chicago.

Ascend’s panel of award judges is composed of leading rehab therapy industry experts, the release notes. The panel will analyze applicants’ performance regarding a set list of criteria, including business achievements, goals, and methodology. The award winner will be presented a cash prize of $1,500 and a full-page ad in PPS Impact Magazine.

Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC/L, founder and COO, WebPT, explains that the award “allows us to put the spotlight on a practice that is truly breaking the business mold.”

“We hope that by showcasing business innovation in the rehab therapy space—by showing what is possible—we can inspire the entire industry to start thinking outside of the traditional model,” Jannenga adds.

The release reports that in addition to the award, Ascend will feature a variety of educational sessions designed to assist physical and occupational therapy professionals in learning practical business tactics they can use to capitalize on the evolving healthcare environment.

Attendees can earn up to 10 continuing education units (CEUs), the release says.
