Ascend Practice of the Year: Is Your Clinic the One?

Nominations are now open for the fifth-annual Ascend Practice of the Year award. Does your practice have what it takes to win? The award honors rehab therapy practices that have — over the course of the previous year — achieved meaningful results, made an impact on the rehab therapy community overall and developed forward-thinking strategies for the future.

The winning practice will be recognized at the annual Ascend summit — a business-focused rehab therapy conference hosted by WebPT, the leading rehab therapy software platform. And if that lucky winner is you, you’ll be in very good company: previous Ascend Practice of the Year winners include OSI Physical Therapy, Pivot Physical Therapy and Atlantic Physical Therapy Center.

There is one catch (actually, it’s more of a perk): at least one practice owner or staff member from the winning clinic must attend Ascend 2018 to accept the award. But regardless of whether your practice nabs Practice of the Year honors, Ascend is one industry event you definitely don’t want to miss — and it’s all happening September 28–29 in Phoenix.

Over the years, the award presentation has become one of the top highlights of Ascend. Each year, the judging committee is blown away by the caliber of submissions and the amazing rehab therapists and private practices working to push the profession to new echelons.

All outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy practices are eligible to win regardless of whether they are WebPT members, and being a WebPT member does not increase a practice’s chance of winning.

Aside from bragging rights and an award plaque, the winner will receive:

  • $1,500 cash;
  • Recognition in industry media outlets; and
  • Two tickets to Ascend 2019.

So, what are you waiting for? The deadline to apply is June 30. Finalists will be notified by September 7. To learn more or enter, please visit
