Welcome to our new Reach Therapy Center blog!

Posted on May 15th, 2012 by Denise | No Comments

I am honored and excited to have been given the opportunity to post the first blog for Reach Therapy.  My name is Denise Koonce and I have been an OT for 20 years and have worked for the company 18 of those years.

My daughter Katharine recently received her report card and had some questions regarding the numbers and letters.  “Mom, what do those numbers mean?” she asked.  I explained that the numbers represents an average of all the grades she had received at school.  “Oh, then what does the “E” stand for?” she asked.  I said “That represents Excellence.”  But what does Excellence mean?”  I said “Excellence is the highest standard you can reach for.”

While I was thinking of how to introduce Reach Therapy Centers and Healthcare I thought about this conversation and numbers.  For instance, 22 is the number of years we have been providing pediatric therapy services; 3 is the number of clinics we operate in the Houston area; and 103 is the number of physical, occupational, and speech therapists employed.  Over 1000 is the combined years of therapy experience of the individuals who work for Reach; 40 is the number of continuing educational programs we provide in a year; and 11,500 is the number of children we have helped to REACH their therapeutic goals.

The numbers are significant but to me the most impressive aspect is our “E” for Excellence.  We have worked diligently over the years to provide all the qualities that define excellence.  Our commitment to provide the highest standard in treatment.  Those standards require state of the art equipment and facilities, extensive clinical education for our staff, and participation in research and education for students.  Excellence is never complacent, and we are always looking for new ways to improve the lives of our patients and challenge our staff to REACH even higher.

Our blog will address new treatment techniques and modalities, and provide resources for parents, therapists, and other medical professionals.  We will try to keep you abreast of educational opportunities, community events, and the latest research.  We invite you along on our journey with us as we continue to reach for “Excellence”.
