Congratulations to the 2012 graduates of St. Catherine’s Rehabilitation Hospital/Villa Maria Nursing Center Postgraduate Residency in Geriatric Physical Therapy. All three graduates have passed Board certification exams and are now Board certified Geriatric Clinical Specialists. This is a huge accomplishment and our accolades go to each of them. The graduates are Vincenzo Bombara, PT, DPT, GCS; Amy Cooper, PT, DPT, GCS; and Jenny Chang, PT, DPT, GCS. We are especially lucky to have two of them remain on our full time staff. Dr. Bombara is at St. Catherine’s Rehabilitation Hospital/Villa Maria Nursing Center and Dr. Cooper is at St. Anthony’s Rehabilitation Hospital/St. John’s Nursing Center. Dr. Chang is employed at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, Washington.
Since the residency program was accredited by the American Physical Therapy Association in 2004, 100% of the program’s graduates have successfully passed Board specialty examinations on their first attempt. There are nine Board certified geriatric specialists in physical therapy employed at CHS’s East, West, and North campuses.
