  • 2021 OT of the Year - Eva Sanchez

    Posted on November 10th, 2021

    Rehab Synergies is proud to recognize Eva Sanchez from Advanced Rehab & Healthcare of Vernon as our 2021 Occupational Therapist of the Year! Eva has been with Rehab Synergies for 10 years and was nominated by her Administrator Jill Vianco. Eva has been practicing as an OT for 25 years.


    Eva is great with patients and their families; she is dedicated, compassionate, and focuses on patient-centered care. Residents love Eva as she is always there to help out, especially for training with the CNAs. Eva pays close attention to the way the aides are lifting or if the wheel chair is in poor shape – she even keeps her own tools. She has strong leadership skills & is a great team player. She provides items needed for cooking activities and will adopt a resident & provide whatever they need. She is only here for our residents; when she takes them under her wing, she often gets better results in therapy because of her connection with them.


    Eva is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, and confident in her OT role. Residents, families, and physicians seek her out to gain her insight. Eva has headed up and assisted with bake sales, wreaths, cake walks, and many fundraisers. She worked with our BDS on a special rock-painting project where they placed the rocks in the community at various businesses with our facility name. Eva helps with our float every year that we enter in the parade. She has done many OT community marketing presentations. Eva is an all-around great person and valuable asset to our Team. 

    Staff respect her immensely and she always makes time for them and speaks respectfully to them.

    Congratulations Eva and thank you for all you do!
