Helene Steinmill Fearon, pt '78

Helene Fearon graduated ready to make a difference, and she has done just that.

A physical therapist for 28 years, she and her husband Tim, also a physical therapist, run a private practice in Phoenix. Helene is also an owner and president of Physical Therapy Provider Network of Arizona, a physical therapist-owned provider network, and a principal in Health Care Resources Institute Inc., a health care consulting firm.

Helene’s passion for her profession as well as her Catholic upbringing has prompted her to “give back to the profession and bring to others the fire of enthusiasm for participation in all aspects of physical therapy.”

This passion extends to her involvement in the American Physical Therapy Association at both the state and national levels. Helene has also received numerous recognitions and awards from APTA.

Since 1992, Helene has worked tirelessly to bridge the gap between the health care industry and the physical therapy profession as a representative to the American Medical Association’s Current Procedural Terminology HealthCare Professionals Advisory Committee.

Helene has also taken on health care’s third party payment system, working to improve payment policies for physical therapy services. In 2000, she was appointed to the AMA’s CPT editorial panel, representing all non-physicians. As a result of this appointment, she plans to mentor other physical therapists interested advocating for the profession.
