Jerre Van Den Bent PT



Jerre van den Bent, PT received his training as a physical therapist in his native Holland. He came to Texas in 1993, and has worked in pediatric home care since then. In May of 2001, Jerre launched THERAPY 2000 out of the basement of his home. In the past nine years, THERAPY 2000 has become a thriving company providing in-home pediatric services to families across the DFW Metroplex. The company currently provides services to more than 1200 families with a workforce of almost 200 Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists, and is in the process of opening offices throughout the rest of the State of Texas. Jerre is currently serving as the Chair person for the North Texas District of the Texas Physical Therapy Association and the membership co-chair for the Texas Chapter. He is channeling his energy to growing membership for the association. He is a self proclaimed “leadership junkie”, and gets his “fix” by being an active member of the Health Policy and Administration Section of the American Physical Therapy Association.
