Meet Connie Andrade. Connie is the Director of Rehabilitation Services at Primary Children’s Hospital, part of the Intermountain Health System in Salt Lake City, Utah. Connie oversees rehabilitation services at Primary Children’s and works closely with the pediatric rehab centers throughout the Intermountain system.
Connie has a clinical background in Physical Therapy and has been a part of the IPRC Steering Committee since 2013. She has a strong interest in service delivery models and outcomes management in pediatric populations. Connie is a CARF surveyor and has had the opportunity to visit pediatric rehabilitation programs all over the world. This experience has given her broad perspective and innovative ideas on program development.
For Connie, investing her time in IPRC is worthwhile because it keeps her actively engaged in what’s happening at the national and international levels and “gives her the opportunity to positively contribute to the ongoing evolution of pediatric rehab in a changing healthcare environment.”
In her free time, Connie enjoys hiking in the mountains with her two dogs, Noah and Ruby.
