Ultimate Rehab’s founder is Lorie MacDonald, PT, graduate of St Louis University. In 1999, Lorie’s goal of providing a more responsive and personalized contract therapy option for skilled nursing providers proved necessary and Ultimate Rehab grew, partnering with SNF facilities in OH, KY, IND, TENN, and FLA.
Ultimate Rehab is proud of its retention over 22 years and even today the first employee to join Ultimate, Kelley Robinson, is our current Vice President of Employee Relations. Sandy Mueller joined Ultimate Rehab in 2008 as an operator and is currently The Director of Recruiting.
Ultimate Rehab became a family business in 2011 when Lorie’s son Brian, DPT, joined the company as a Physical Therapist after first spending time working in a local hospital system. Brian’s roles have evolved as Ultimate Rehab has grown and is currently a Corporate Director.
Ultimate Rehab has since expanded their services to include Recruiting/Staffing assistance to skilled nursing and home health operators. Ultimate Rehab goes above and beyond what normal recruiting services provide, vetting candidates, setting up interviews, and seeing the candidate through the process to the offer letter and beyond. Ultimate makes recruiting employees smooth for our clients at an outstanding value compared to national firms.
Over twenty years later Ultimate Rehab maintains the commitment to providing a responsive and personalized approach to skilled nursing and home health operators as well as the high caliber dedicated candidates hired for our selective client facilities and health care operators.
The Ultimate Difference
Ultimate Rehab has the clinical, financial and regulatory expertise of regional and national contract therapy companies, with the attention and responsiveness one would expect from a smaller, locally owned firm.
The Ultimate difference comes from having the company’s owners and senior management team focused on the individual needs of each client facility. This individualized focus ensures that all aspects of our clients’ therapy departments receives the attention necessary to drive outstanding patient and family satisfaction while also meeting the goals.
Unlike larger organizations, with layers of management and bureaucracy, Ultimate Rehab’s clients deal directly with the decision makers of the company. This leads to very timely resolution of any requests or issues with most addressed within 24-48 hours. This type of responsiveness ensures that the needs of your residents and facility will be met at all times.
