Olivia's Place Comments Off , ,

At the end of 2012, Olivia’s Place was recognized on an international level.  Olivia’s Place earned Honorable Mention for ADVANCE Practice of the Year. The winning practices were recognized for providing superior consumer service using evidence-based care, staying true to the guiding principles of the profession, and promoting the profession of physical therapy. Advance Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation is a US-based publication with a readership of more 93,000 professionals working in a rehabilitative capacity.

ADVANCE has conducted the Practice of the Year awards for 11 years, and practices considered range from small neighborhood clinics to large multi-state enterprises, with a wide variety of physical therapy and rehabilitation services and specialties. The judging panel is made up exclusively of physical therapy private practice owners and previous winners of the contest, who score anonymous entries on a range of success metrics.

Olivia’s Place was recognized for our vision to change the way pediatric therapy is done in China.  This includes a commitment to high-quality, evidence-based care, qualified staff, and partnership and outreach with local hospitals and clinics, universities, foundations, schools, and orphanage.  The panel also cited our Technical Advisory Board, a group of experts who serve as a resource to our clinicians to ensure that we are utilizing best practices and staying abreast of the most recent information in our clinical fields.  Finally, the honorable mention award recognized our efforts to provide community education to both local and expatriate children, parents, teachers, and medical practitioners.

The 2012 Practice of the Year Winner was Athletico, a 69-location practice headquartered in Chicago.  There were three other practices which earned honorable mention in addition to Olivia’s Place. Learn more about the Advance Practice of the Year awards and the 2012 winners.
