Does Your Practice Have What it Takes?
Ascend is the ultimate business summit for rehab therapy professionals—so, naturally, we present the ultimate awards for rehab therapy professionals.The Ascend awards recognize two outstanding practices in two different ways. The Innovator of the Year award is presented to a practice that’s a total rehab therapy trailblazer—one that’s executing innovative, unique, and cool new ideas. The Practice of the Year award is presented to an industry leader—a practice that’s making waves and enjoying proven success. One application, two awards.
Both awards are open to all outpatient physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy practices. On the application, a representative must designate him or herself as the individual who’s submitting the application on behalf of the practice. This representative will serve as your practice’s point of contact for all future communication regarding the award.
You do not need to be a WebPT Member to win, nor does being a WebPT Member increase your chances of winning. While we’ll notify the finalists by July 31, 2023, we will not formally announce the winner until the Ascend 2023 event.
