Staff Spotlight: Scott Frost
Where are you from?
I am originally from Smithfield Utah. I left the state to go to PT school and worked in many places across the country since then.
What are your favorite things to do?
I enjoy traveling, spending time with family, playing pool, basketball, and have also have enjoyed participating in community theater.
What made you go into Physical Therapy?
I was a junior in college majoring in accounting and decided that this was not my path. I changed my major to Pre PT to look into that profession and a month later was involved in a head on collision on I-15. I experienced firsthand every aspect of PT from ICU to outpatient over the next year. This made me decide to continue on with the PT degree and I felt that I would be able to relate to patients from my own experiences.
What brought you to Mountain Land, and Landmark Hospital?
I was looking to relocate back to Utah to be close to family and I was able to find an opening with Mountain Land managing the new LTAC.
What do you like about working in an LTAC?
I have been able to learn a great deal in my short time here and enjoy the complexity of the patients that are admitted here. When the patients start to improve it happens at times very rapidly and it is enjoyable and rewarding to be a part of that journey with each patient.
Do you have any parting words of wisdom for us?
Enjoy the journey! Try to understand and be empathetic to what the patient is going through. And finally something that I was told when I first became a manager a few years ago: Focus on the things within your circle of control, don’t spend time on things that you can’t change or control.
