Championing Civic Engagement through Transformative Healthcare

Rock the Vote

At Elation Physical Therapy, our commitment extends beyond just physical well-being; it encompasses the overall empowerment and engagement of our community. In a landmark decision for our business, Elation Physical Therapy has chosen to serve as a voting center, closing our doors for regular services for the day to facilitate this civic duty. This step, though significant in altering our daily operations, reflects our deep-rooted belief in the importance of every voice being heard and every vote counted.

Our decision to transform our Houston Heights therapy space into a voting center is a reflection of our core values. Elation Physical Therapy, since its inception, has stood for more than just healthcare; we represent a movement towards inclusivity, empowerment, and active participation in societal progress. Serving as a voting center aligns perfectly with our mission to advocate for individuals to unlock not just their physical potential but also their potential as active, engaged members of society.

Why Close for Voting?

  1. Promoting Civic Engagement: At Elation Physical Therapy, we recognize the importance of civic engagement as a cornerstone of a healthy democracy. By closing our facility to serve as a voting center, we are actively encouraging our staff, patients, and the community to participate in the electoral process. This decision underscores our belief that civic duties are as crucial as physical health.

  2. Accessibility and Inclusivity: As a leader in providing inclusive healthcare, particularly to the LGBTQ+ community, we understand the significance of creating accessible spaces for all. Transforming our therapy center into a  voting venue ensures that individuals from all walks of life have easy access to exercise their voting rights. This is especially important for those who may face barriers in accessing traditional voting locations.

  3. Community Engagement: Elation Physical Therapy is more than a healthcare provider; we are a community partner. By serving as a voting center, we are strengthening our ties with the community, demonstrating our commitment to societal well-being, and fostering a sense of unity and collective responsibility.

  4. Setting an Example: In taking this bold step, Elation Physical Therapy sets an example for other businesses and organizations. It shows that prioritizing civic responsibility can coexist with corporate objectives. We hope to inspire other companies to recognize their role in facilitating democratic processes and contributing positively to the community.

  5. Reflecting Our Values: Our decision is a direct reflection of our brand's mission and values, which emphasize empowerment, inclusivity, and advocacy. By supporting the democratic process, we are living up to our commitment to empower and advocate for individuals, both in physical health and as active, engaged citizens.

In conclusion, Elation Physical Therapy's choice to serve as a voting center is a testament to our commitment to holistic empowerment. It's a demonstration of how healthcare providers can extend their role beyond physical well-being to actively participate in and promote civic responsibilities. We are proud to move not just in physical therapy but also in empowering our community to exercise their right to vote, thereby contributing to the health of our democracy. This decision, we believe, is a step towards a more inclusive, engaged, and healthy society.
