RHCC Adds Second Physical Therapist
Rosebud Health Care Center welcomes back George Wright into the Physical Therapy Department. George joins Kirk Mackley to meet the Physical Therapy needs of the community.
George has been a physical therapist for nearly 4 decades, having graduated from PT school at the University of Utah in 1976. He was a PT in Forsyth from 1992 to 2005. He has continuously striven to stay on top of his profession with continued education through seminars, journals, and development of educational resources such as a surgery observation program for staff, a strong continued education fund, and use of journal clubs. Most recently, he was the rehab services department head at Peace Health Hospital in Ketchikan, Alaska. He was supervising a staff of over 30 individuals including PT’s, OT’s and SLP’s.
George and his wife have owned a home in Forsyth since 1999 and are enjoying being back. He is excited to return to the hospital and its great staff.
