Meredith Boudreau, Physical Therapist in Oncology Rehabilitation at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Chicago, is focused on restoring patients’ function and independence so that they enjoy a positive quality of life. Boudreau joined the CTCA® hospital in Zion, Illinois, in September 2015.
Boudreau has seen the role physical therapy plays for those faced with certain challenges. When Boudreau was a child, her own father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and she often attended his physical therapy sessions. Those early learnings helped Boudreau develop her passion for physical therapy.
“At CTCA, I enjoy providing personalized care to my patients and connecting with them and their families,” says Boudreau. “I share my positivity and compassion through physical therapy to help patients maintain their mobility, decrease pain and improve safety.”
Boudreau studied kinesiology at Northern Illinois University, earning her Bachelor of Science degree. She completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, Illinois. Her training included rotations in outpatient orthopedic care, neurology rehabilitation and acute inpatient care at several hospitals and medical centers.
Since earning her degree, Boudreau has provided physical therapy and held an assistant director position for a rehabilitation facility. She was responsible for performing evaluations and developing treatment plans for inpatients, outpatients and home health care patients. A professional member of the National Athletic Trainers Association and Illinois Athletic Trainers Association, Boudreau is very active in her field.
Outside of CTCA, Boudreau enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters. She also may be found cheering for the Chicago Cubs and Blackhawks.
Patient ratings and comments
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
