Conshohocken Physical Therapy is this year’s recipient of the Conshohocken BPW Employer of the Year citation. This citation is awarded to the business firm or employer who has contributed most to the employment, advancement and recognition of women in the Conshohocken area.

The co­‐owners of Conshohocken Physical Therapy are Dr. Desirea and Robert Caucci. Dr. Desirea Caucci has received special recognition and was named one of the "Top 3 Physical Therapists in the Nation". She was also awarded the Dorland Health People Award for individual providers who inspire, motivate and empower professionals. And CPT was named "Top 4 in the Nation" by ADVANCE Magazine in January 2013 for expanding their offering of services, staying true to the guiding principles of the profession, using new media to promote themselves and the physical therapy profession, and above all, offering superior consumer service through evidence-­based care.

Of the 14 employees, 12 are women (85.7%) and four of the five Doctors of Physical Therapy are women (80%). The Physical Therapy Assistant, two Patient Aides, Accounts Receivable, Director of Marketing, Office Manager and Office Administrator, and Massage Therapist are all women. Three women were hired during the last calendar year: a full-­time Office Manager, a full-­time Aide and a full-time License Massage Therapist and Receptionist.

CPT offers a generous compensation plan and clinical ladder for its clinical staff (currently five DPTs and growing). They offer continuing education reimbursement, competitive salaries, a two-­tiered incentive model, and a promotional system that elevates a PT to senior level after four years of service. Two women were promoted to key positions last year and another will be promoted this spring after completing her clinical.

CPT has several continuing education classes and employees that have received special certifications through additional coursework. They do monthly best practices and give accolades to employees at their staff meetings. Conshohocken Physical Therapy feels that mentoring DPT students is important, and serves as a clinical education site for Arcadia University DPT students.

CPT is also active in their community at various fall festivals and 5k walk/runs throughout the year. They contribute donations to several high school teams, causes, fundraisers, ad books, etc. CPT is active in the community groups that encourage the development of local businesses and promoting Conshohocken as a place to shop, dine, and "buy" local. CPT has also had a representative as a Conshohocken BPW member for multiple years.

Conshohocken Physical Therapy is a shining example of how a company can achieve balance between running a business and treating its customers and employees as family, as well as give back to their community. Because of its employee-friendly work environment, including advancement and educational opportunities for its employees who are primarily women, Conshohocken BPW is proud to recognize Conshohocken Physical Therapy as its recipient of the 2014-­2015 Conshohocken BPW Employer of the Year.
