After graduating from Baylor University in 1993 with a Masters of Business Administration in Management, Greg Rogers took a position with Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals working in sales, marketing and branding. Of the 11 years Greg spent with Lilly, nine of them were in the area of neurosciences. It was an area that spoke to his heart, and prepared him for his current position as the CEO of Integra Hospital in Plano. Integra employs a unique model centered around neurological rehabilitation and recovery. Most of their patients are admitted as the result of a stroke or brain injury, rather than for an orthopedic condition. The difference is that 80% of the therapy is administered on a one on one basis, rather than in a group setting. They have their work cut out for them as they “retrain” the brain to perform common functions. Greg sees his work at Integra as ministry and mission, and he believes Integra’s motto, “Restoring Health, Restoring Hope”.
