Barbara Laria, LPTA, BS, CCI
Director of Rehabilitation
Barbara went to Miami-Dade State College receiving an A.S in Physical Therapy and Palm Beach Atlantic University a B.S. Business Administration. Having worked as the Administrative Assistant for the Rehabilitation Department at Mount Sinai Medical Center of Miami Beach and observing the work of the rehab staff, she became fascinated with the achievements the therapists were accomplishing with their patients and the incredible transformations she was witnessing. The small daily victories the patients were experiencing inspired her and led her to the path of physical rehabilitation in order that she may do the same for those in need. It has been 30 years and she is still enjoying every minute of it. Her favorite part of her job is having the privilege to assist others and take care of their needs in order that they may return home to their loved ones. To know that they can resume their life with the utmost quality possible implemented wound care programs successfully in two former facilities. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, gardening, and playing the piano.
