You won’t find Nichole Wilson in her office near Community Hospital North—she’s rarely there. As director of Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine for Community Health Network since 2009, she is responsible for business development, growth and operation of 11 outpatient clinics for physical-, occupational-, speech- and massage therapy-services in the Indianapolis metro area.

Her work involves frequent travel to the north, east and south sides of town to visit the Rehab & Sports Medicine Centers, four or five of which have opened under her watch.

Wilson, 33, considers her position “perfect, because I’m in a leadership role of an area that I’m really passionate about. I’m really fortunate that I have a lot of great people to work with.”

Wilson came to work at Community Health Network in 2005 as a physical therapist while working on her clinical doctorate from the University of Indianapolis. She did her undergraduate work at DePauw University, majoring in sports medicine.

“One of the reasons I got into physical therapy is I like the ability to help people return to what makes them happy,” she said.

“Even though I [no longer] work directly with patients, I feel a lot of what I do is still for patients.”

She and her husband have a “date” every Saturday in West Lafayette, where they are both working on MBA degrees at Purdue University.

Wilson is involved in several community organizations, from the board of Lacy Leadership Association to the National Coalition of 100 Black Women.

Wilson, a Pike High School graduate, also believes in mentoring. She is a facilitator and mentor for the Center for Leadership Development to support minority students through high school and college. She herself is a graduate of the CLD programs.

She also founded a mentoring program for minority students interested in allied health professions. She is on the curriculum advisory council for the Krannert School of Physical Therapy at the University of Indianapolis.

“I’ve always been super-involved,” she said. “I’m passionate about my work and my community.”•

  1. Angela IS the best RD

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
