Brad Andrews
Brad AndrewsDPT, CSCS, OWNER
Brad Andrews is Co-Owner of Salus Tampa Bay. He serves as Treasurer and shares the roles of CEO, President, and COO with partner Nick Hughes. A Tampa transplant from Lewiston NY, Andrews grew up just next to Niagara Falls. Following an undergraduate study in Exercise Science, Andrews received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of New York at Buffalo. During this time, Andrews’ graduate capstone research targeted Neurologic Physical Therapy with stroke and multiple sclerosis patients. His clinical rotations, residency, and early Contracted Physical Therapist work took him up and down the East Coast, before settling in Tampa. As he puts it, “Tampa Bay felt right.”

Over a decade into his career, Andrews has worked extensively with orthopedic injuries, including post surgical patients, arthritis conditions and sports injuries. His commitment to continual learning lead to him studying at length with Maitland Physiotherapy Seminars and developing an expertise in the area of Orthopedic Manual Therapy. Additionally, he is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Outside of his leadership roles at Salus and practice of Physical Therapy, Andrews enjoys an active life running, swimming, biking and weightlifting — basically, anything physical, and even better if it’s outdoors!

Nick Hughes
Nick HughesDPT, OWNER
Nick Hughes is Co-Owner, CEO, President, and COO of Salus Tampa Bay, titles he shares with partner Brad Andrews. Hailing from Buffalo, NY, Hughes didn’t have to travel far to receive his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Buffalo. His doctoral capstone research focused on Neurological Physical Therapy with an emphasis on stroke rehabilitation.

Adventuring out into his professional career, Hughes’ work would take him down the East Coast, with a stint in the Midwest, before winding up settling in St. Pete in 2010. During this time, he specialized in outpatient orthopedics, practicing a wide variety of treatments including postsurgical, proprioceptive balance training and general pain reduction.

In addition to leading a successful business, Hughes stays involved in the community as a member of the Chamber of Commerce and Young Professional Organization of St. Pete. He also dedicates himself to charity work through the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. In his free time, Hughes enjoys being active and outdoors with friends.

Josh Hibbert
Josh HibbertGeneral Manager
Josh Hibbert is General Manager of Salus and has always known Tampa is where he belonged. Once completing his undergraduate studies in Health Sciences & Public Health at the University of South Florida, he returned to his birthplace in Syracuse, New York to obtain his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Upstate Medical University. He continued on to gain diverse practice experience in high profile areas such as the VA system in New York City, working with Special Forces at Fort Bragg and catering to aging adults at the prestigious Shell Point retirement community in Fort Myers, Florida. In his travels he knew that his goal was to return to the Tampa Bay area & find a company that valued patient centered care and growth as a clinician. He began working with Salus in 2016 and knew that he found that home he was looking for.

Josh is highly dedicated to continuously bettering the Salus employee and patient experience by creating the finest team possible, bringing on the strongest clinicians and staff from across the country. Aside from administrative work, Joshua enjoys working with patients across the spectrum to improve functional ability, or improving the general well being of those in need.

OUR PATIENTS SAY

“The Salus team has always been prompt and responsive in their service. I can depend on their expertise and professional approach to provide me with the concise documentation needed to accomplish our common goals.”

William Lazenby, Ellison Lazenby PLCC

“Physical therapy with Salus was the single best thing I could have done after ACL surgery. I was blown away by the rapid progress, and so was my knee surgeon! They kept me motivated through small, attainable goals and steady progress. As a strength coach and athlete, I highly recommend him to anyone recovering from an injury.”
