JACKSONVILLE – Bennett Harbison, a physical therapist, is Passavant Area Hospital’s Colleague of the Month for July.
Harbison was nominated by a patient who appreciated his compassion and attention to detail: “Bennett never once made me feel as if I didn't ‘get it’ or that I was not up to par or making mistakes. He was patient, professional, humorous and kind. What an asset to your program!”
Harbison joined Passavant Area Hospital in 2019. He said he enjoys the relationships he develops with his patients.
“The most rewarding part of my job is working with my colleagues to progress patients toward their goals,” said Harbison. “It’s a great feeling when you discharge a patient who has worked hard and has improved significantly under your care.”
Harbison would like to pursue education to become an orthopedic clinical specialist.
Outside of work, Harbison, of Springfield, enjoys caring for his golden retriever puppy and traveling.
