Interim HealthCare Inc. Announces 2018 ‘Therapist of the Year’

Brendan Alex of Fort Collins, Colorado, honored for his excellent patient care and service

SUNRISE, Fla. – November 28, 2018Interim HealthCare Inc., a leading national franchisor of home care, hospice, and healthcare staffing, today announced Brendan Alex as its 2018 Therapist of the Year. Brendan works as a physical therapist at Interim HealthCare of Fort Collins, Colorado.
 
The Interim HealthCare Therapist of the Year award is given to an individual who compassionately and skillfully provides exceptional patient care and consistently contributes to Interim’s mission of improving peoples’ lives. Offices recognized a variety of talent across the network that represent the very best of therapy.
 
“There are people who go to their job every day because they ‘have to,’ and those who go to their job because they ‘want to,’” said Paul Hutchings, rehab director in Fort Collins and Brendan’s supervisor. “Brendan falls into the latter category, as evidenced not only by providing excellent patient care, but by taking the time to inspire others. He is a great educator both in the field, as well as in the office.”
 
Since joining Interim HealthCare of Fort Collins in 2015 as a physical therapist, Brendan has consistently delivered compassionate care and attention that’s resulted in dramatically increasing the functional independence and in-home mobility of his patients.
 
In fact, the wife of one of Brendan’s patients who passed away stated, “he repeatedly went out of his way to see my husband on weekends and odd hours, keeping him from his own family. I have so much gratitude about the relationship he developed with my husband. It brought more to him than the physical therapy itself.”
