As I reflect on this announcement of, and have great appreciation for, the journey my Elite Physical Therapy business partner, Bart Jones, will embark on for the next three years, servant-leadership is what comes to mind. Robert Greenleaf said, “It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, serve first,” noting “the servant prepares himself or herself to lead by a process of growth through experience.”
Bart and I have worked side by side for nearly 21 years. It’s been an amazing ride, not only building a business, and supporting our patients but also serving our community. Bart was recently elected by our state professional association, APTA Louisiana, to serve as President of the organization for the next three years. This honor comes with commitment.
As president, Bart will serve and lead our state membership with his 35+ years of physical therapy experience. His leadership will draw on his clinical knowledge, entrepreneurial experience, and his passion to serve his patients. As president of APTA Louisiana he will also represent our state at the national level of the American Physical Therapy Association. Service by our team members represents the long-standing commitment and culture at Elite Physical Therapy to serve and lead in our community.
A few recent service highlights from our Elite PT Team include:
In 2021, we encourage you to be a part, do your part, and become a part of the solution!
Congrats Bart from your Elite PT Team!
