HealthSouth Chattanooga receives award from UTC’s Department of Health, Education and Professional Studies
HealthSouth Chattanooga Rehabilitation Hospital was recently recognized with the Outstanding Clinical Partner Award for the 2017-2018 academic year by The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s Department of Health, Education and Professional Studies.
The hospital’s physical therapy department was recognized for its excellence in serving as a clinical rotation site for students from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga’s doctoral program for physical therapists. While UTC places students in various settings throughout the country, HealthSouth Chattanooga hosted and trained more students in the past academic year than any other organization. In addition, the rehabilitation hospital was praised by UTC programs leadership for the valuable experience and training that HealthSouth Chattanooga has consistently provided its physical therapy students.
“Being a strong community partner and helping train future physical therapists is something we value strongly at HealthSouth Chattanooga,” said Scott Rowe, PT, CEO of HealthSouth Chattanooga. “We have many talented therapists here, and I value their commitment in helping the students get an extensive experience in the field of inpatient rehabilitation.”
Through multidisciplinary care, HealthSouth Chattanooga serves patients recovering from a variety of debilitating illnesses and injuries including stroke and other neurological disorders, brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation and hip fractures.
