Occupational Therapist 

About the Organization Community Physical was founded in 1986 by Bob Tripicchio, PT, MS, DSc, on the premise that people are the most important asset of any organization. CPT was devoted exclusively to the delivery of home care services until 1996, when we expanded to include outpatient services and skilled nursing facility staffing and management services. Throughout this growth period, CPT has remained focused on maintaining a practice that creates values for employees so as to leverage the best possible knowledge possible.
