Every year, Concept Rehab recognizes exceptional employees who stand out through their kindness and care for those around them. This is done through the Jim Gamble award, in honor of Jim Gamble who worked at Concept Rehab for 13 years as a PTA. For those who had the honor of working with Jim, you understand not only what a great person he was but how he continuously exemplified unwavering commitment, respect and integrity with everything that he did. Jim passed away in April 2015 but we commemorate his legacy every year with this award.
It is our honor to announce the 2019 Jim Gamble Award winners!

Jeremy is a Physical Therapy Assistant at Friends Care Community in Yellow Springs, Ohio. He has been working with Concept Rehab since July of 2009.
