A Great Place To Work

When my wife and I moved here from Chicago 4 years ago one of the things I valued in looking for a new employer was a place that had experienced clinicians. I was only 2 years out of graduate school at the time, and my previous employer hired many new graduates. The clinics where I practiced had other new grads, or were small. I was one of the only physical therapists there.

At OSI, the wealth of experience and knowledge is unending. Not only are there great people working here, who care about the profession and improving patient’s lives with providing value-based care, but also the amount of clinical knowledge here is mind blowing!

From the front office, to the billing department, to the call center, to insurance verification, to the admin offices, and finally the therapists many employees at OSI have been here for a long time. A true sign of a great place to work!!!

Here’s a quote from Jody on her time at OSI:

“I’ve worked for OSI for over 13 years. I’ve always had the passion and drive to help people whether in the clinic or helping our own OSI staff members grow and develop personally and professionally. I love working for OSI for many reasons, but the most important reason is because OSI is family. Anyone can do a “job”, but it is the people around you that makes all the difference in the world. We drive and motivate each other to do and be the best. We do serious work in getting people better, but our culture of striving for the best outcomes at the lowest cost all the while having fun and being excited to come into work every day is truly a blessing.” – Jody Ruppert, CEO OSI Physical Therapy

 

So when you come to OSI for your rehabilitation, you’re coming to a place that is a lot like family, a place where many of us have enjoyed worked together for a long time. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

See you soon!
