National complex rehab and wound care provider Rehab Medical Inc. has made two key changes to its executive clinical team.
Long-time administrator and company pioneer Jarrad Rankin, ATP will move from his role as Director of Rehab to the role of Director of Operations. In his new role, he will oversee service, purchasing and insurance review, while also driving the company’s continued focus toward quality and efficiency in the expanding market of complex and custom rehab technology.
Rankin, who originally joined the company as a sales assistant in 2005, helped lay the early foundation of Rehab Medical, which now operates in 20 metro markets.
“Jarrad has done an exceptional job driving complex rehab over the years as it has morphed from one small part of our business to being a majority of our business,” said Kevin Gearheart, president Rehab Medical. “His knowledge and oversight of how we operate can now be utilized to provide more direct support to critical areas of the business.”
To further reinforce its clinical staff, the company has hired William “Rusty” Mattingly. Mattingly will join Rankin’s team as ATP Clinical Trainer, and will focus on clinical development of staff, technicians, and ATPs, as well as improving the patient experience.
Mattingly brings to the role a history in seating and positioning that includes an educational background in engineering and occupational therapy, and he has developed seating clinics at both Norton Neuroscience and Frazier Rehab Institute.
“In order to provide the level of service and care that we expect, we have to develop our staff at all levels,” Gearheart said. “Bringing Rusty on board to drive this will position us well for the future.”
