Hello, I’m Derek Fenwick, PT, MBA, GCS. I served as an Area Rehab Director for Infinity Rehab for the past 2.5 years. Now, I’m both excited and proud to say I’ll take on the role of Director of Professional Development
My mission in this new position is to begin the task of cultivating the ideas, feelings, and innovative visions of our professional staff to help turn those deep notions into tangible, forward-moving realities.
It’s no secret, the health care industry is highly dynamic and ever-evolving. Luckily, we already have a proactive strategy at Infinity Rehab, aimed squarely at taking on this challenge:
Invest in our people. The rest will follow.
That sounds great, right? But what does it mean? And – more importantly – what does that philosophy mean for our therapists; especially in today’s health care world?
The renowned researcher and writer Allison Fine, contributed a great article to Harvard Business Review summarizing where Infinity stands on the question: “What does it mean to be a ‘professional’ today?”

Infinity Rehab recognizes that we are nothing without our people. We believe it is important to develop our managers and clinicians to be the best at every level of service to our company.
