Special Tree Rehabilitation System, a leader in brain injury and spinal cord injury rehabilitation, has again been named one of the best places to work in Michigan by the Detroit Free Press on their annual Top Workplaces list. 
The Top Workplaces list was published Sunday, November 17, 2013 in the Detroit Free Press.  The list recognizes the top 100 Michigan companies and is based entirely on how employees feel about their workplace. 

To make the list, employees take an independent survey conducted by the Detroit Free Press and their survey partner Workplace Dynamics to rate their company’s performance on Direction, Execution, Career, Conditions, Managers and Pay & Benefits.  Special Tree’s high survey score and collection of positive written comments helped it to earn a fourth Top Workplace recognition.  Employees’ survey comments praised Special Tree’s leadership, caring work environment, staff training program, and strong teamwork.
“I’d like to give my special thanks to our employees, not only for all of their hard work and dedication, but also for sharing their positive workplace experiences,” said Vice President and Director of Referrals Jack Richert, who is also a board member of the Huron Township LDFA.  “Equally important is our employees’ understanding and strong commitment to our mission to help our clients achieve the most independent and meaningful life possible.”
“We are proud to have quality employers like Special Tree on our board.” Said LDFA Chairman R.P. Lilly. “Because of these like-minded members, we are able to move progress forward in our Township.”

It is one of the Midwest’s premiere rehabilitation providers for persons with brain injury, spinal cord injury, and other disabilities.  Special Tree provides a full range of care for children and adults including inpatient, outpatient, residential, home and community services at over 25 locations throughout Southeastern Michigan.  With a person-centered approach to healing and recovery, Special Tree has achieved accreditation from CARF and the Joint Commission, and received the Michigan Quality Council’s highest award for quality excellence in 2010.Special Tree Named a Top Workplace in Michigan for Second Consecutive Year
