Spirit of Maryville 2017: Rubel Brothers (Greg, Matt and Jason)
Physical therapy is sort of a “family business” for the Rubel brothers: Greg, ’97, Matt, ’00, and Jason, ’03, ’04. With Greg leading the way, at least one Rubel brother was on campus for more than a decade — including years when two brothers overlapped.
It’s no surprise that all three have developed successful careers marked by increasing responsibilities over the years. Greg is the program manager of the Bridgeton clinic for the Work Center, in Bridgeton, Mo., treating patients and managing day-to-day operations. He joined the Work Center during his Maryville clinicals and began working there at the end of his last rotation. Matt is director of the rehab department at Madison Medical Center in Fredericktown, Mo., overseeing physical therapy and occupational therapy in various health settings. Jason is vice president of ambulatory services for the SSM Health Rehabilitation Network in St. Louis.
Healthcare professions and a Maryville education are Rubel family traditions, even beyond the physical therapy program. Greg and Jason both met their wives on campus. Greg’s wife, Kelly, is also a physical therapist and Jason’s wife, Marta, is a nurse practitioner. Matt’s wife, Michele, is also a physical therapist.
