AUBURN _ In honor of National Physical Therapy Month this October, South County Physical Therapy, Inc. (SCPT), a renowned leader in rehabilitative orthopedic physical therapy care, celebrated the milestones of 25 of its team members. Individuals were recognized for longstanding tenure with the company and superior leadership talents during an award ceremony, held at Chuck’s Steak House located at 10 Prospect Street in Auburn.

The award ceremony comes on the heels of a company-wide staff event held in Boston to celebrate its 30th Anniversary and over one million patient visits. At that time, the SCPT team enjoyed a spirited scavenger hunt and lunch at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf.

“Our staff is at the core of SCPT’s success, and we want them to know they are valued and appreciated, every day. Each individual within our organization provides our patients with unsurpassed care, and for that we are truly thankful,” said Executive Director Eric Cardin.

Employees honored at the event included Jayme Protano, Lynne Espino, Joanne Rivard, Grant Pattee, Matthew Read, Mary Haglund, Shelly Sullivan, Sally Smalanskas, and Laurie Beardsley, each for five years of service.

Eric Cardin, Laura Wiltshire, Patricia Piecewicz, and Margret DiPilato each celebrated 10 years of service to SCPT. Tara Colorio, June Soloperto, and Janice Holub were recognized for 15 years of service, each.

Jackie Brierly and Diane Gosselin were each applauded for 25 years of dedicated tenure with the company. Susan Lasewicz, who has been with the practice since its inception, received merits for 30 years of service to SCPT.

Five team members who received special recognition for their outstanding leadership included Nancy Siegal, Jillian Drew, Kristen Greene, Lena Duhani, and Sally Smalanskas.

SCPT Founder and CEO Catherine Hoover-Smith was acknowledged by attendees for providing Central Massachusetts residents with personalized rehabilitative care in the towns of Auburn, Charlton, Millbury, Westborough (East Main Street and Oak Street), and Worcester, and for the practice’s unprecedented growth and success.

“We are so proud of our staff members who make it their mission to provide personalized care to every patient. These irreplaceable individuals have a longstanding tenure with our practice and add more cumulative experience to SCPT’s team than any other physical therapy organization in the region,” said Hoover-Smith. “As we look ahead to the future of our practice and its continued growth, our high standard of care and commitment to the well-being of our patients and team will always be at the forefront of everything we accomplish,” Hoover-Smith added.
