About

Mission

Through our compassionate and knowledgeable therapists, RNs, and CNAs, Broad River Rehab provides quality therapy services to each client based upon their individual needs.

Philosophy

We at Broad River believe that there is little skill required in identifying needs in skilled nursing. Simply walk down the hall of any facility and you will observe many clinical needs. The skill in skilled therapy, however, comes from having the compassion (for the population we serve) and knowledge (both clinical and regulatory) to know how to address these needs. That is why Broad River Rehab promotes a culture that values compassion and knowledge; formally investing internally and externally in ensuring its therapists have the compassion, knowledge, tools, and experience to meet the clinical needs of the residents and clients that we serve.

We are passionate about the care we provide to our residents, and it shows in the faces of those we care for.


Why Broad River?

All therapy companies are not the same.

Broad River Rehab is simply better – and we can prove it. Through our knowledgeable and compassionate therapy team, we deliver quality physical, speech and occupational therapy services to our clients based upon their individual needsBut we’re much more than just therapy providers. We’re data analytics experts, too.

We invest in ensuring our therapists have the passionknowledge, data tools, and experience to meet the clinical and operational needs of our clients and the people we care for together.

We work hard to earn the trust of our customers, and it’s gratifying when they share their thoughts and feelings about our partnership with them. Below are some testimonials from such professionals. Please note that professional references are always available and will be provided upon request.

This has been, by far the best and smoothest transition from one company to another that I have experienced in my 35+ years in long-term care rehabilitation. I want to thank you, Sumit and Carrie for your personal introductions to Broad River Rehab. The training that we have received has cleared-up much uncertainty regarding PDPM and the GG process. I’m looking forward to the additional quality training that Broad River has in store for our therapy team and our facility. Thank you for such a great first week.”

— Client Rehab Director

There are smart people, really smart people and then there is Manning McGraw. In my 20+ years dealing with the minutia of healthcare reimbursement and clinical systems, I have met only a handful of individuals with such a passion for their patients and for the world of reimbursement. If you need to understand Medicare, Medicaid or virtually any other reimbursement system, Manning is your man. Not only does Manning have the patience to mine thousands of pages of rules and regulations and pick-out the tasty tidbits, I’ve also known him to track-down the proper bureaucrats, pick-up the phone and get the inside facts straight from the source. This skill alone has often given Manning an understanding of reimbursement bordering on prescience. Some people understand these issues, but Manning has the added gift of being able to explain, teach and use this understanding. Most importantly, he has the ability to combine his clinical chops with his comprehensive knowledge of reimbursement systems and create actionable policies and procedures that achieve the best possible outcomes for the patient AND the provider. If you ever get the opportunity to work with Manning, DO IT!”

— Client Facility Administrator

Often with a contract therapy company, the skilled nursing and therapy professionals act as two separate entities. With Broad River Rehab, the management encourages unity amongst the two components resulting in improved resident outcomes.”
