Meet Our Team

We’re a passionate group of get-it-doners who share a deep love for coffee. We work hard and play even harder. When we’re not working out of our Kalispell headquarters, we’re probably spending time with our families, exploring the stunning landscapes of Northwest Montana, or relaxing on any one of the hundreds of crystal-clear lakes in the area.

Blaine Stimac, PT

Chief Executive Officer

Blaine grew up in Great Falls, Montana, and earned his Master of Physical Therapy from the University of Montana. With an entrepreneurial spirt and desire to make a big impact, he made a bold move launching his own private practice immediately following graduation. He was on a mission to make a difference in people’s lives through physical therapy; however, he quickly encountered the common challenges facing private practice owners.

Realizing an outstanding clinical and provider reputation would not alone create a great practice, he committed to learning how to run a business. Soon after, Blaine acquired and merged his existing practice with another large private practice in Kalispell, Montana. The company’s performance quickly and drastically improved, quadrupling in growth. This inspired him to help other private practice owners overcome the barriers they face and build successful businesses, and became the impetus, vision and core of HRS. Blaine has also been active in the American Physical Therapy Association on a statewide and national level developing a passion for private practice advocacy and entrepreneurship.

Outside of work, you’ll find Blaine with his wife, Britne, and their three boys enjoying the mountain lifestyle. Often skiing, navigating the abundance of lakes and rivers in the valley, or hiking the mountains, they take full advantage of the Montana’s wide-open spaces. Blaine stays active coaching his three boys in lacrosse and is a dedicated fitness and health enthusiast – particularly enjoying CrossFit.

Chief Operations Officer

Growing up in the mountains of Virginia, Cain has always been a man with big dreams and the motivation to make them a reality. He is an unapologetic sports fan and admits there is no televised sporting event that he is unwilling to watch. He is far more than an armchair athlete or weekend warrior, playing collegiate football at the University of Virginia and Emory & Henry College.

He and wife, Lydia, also a physical therapist, share a passion for the profession which, was the impetus for their relocation to Montana and HRS. Following the completion of his DPT at Shenandoah University, Cain completed his COMT and CDNT through IAMT. Cain’s commitment to progressing the physical therapy profession through clinical quality drives his operational strategy.

In his other life as a dad of three (two daughters, one of which boasts a twin brother), Cain has learned to live life to its fullest with next to no sleep. A huge proponent of time management, Cain will be the first one to tell you he has not yet mastered the change to Mountain Time and finds he often misses the first hour on game day. It is his personal challenge to correct this and immerse himself fully in everything Montana has to offer.

Clay Holland, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC

Administrative Operations Executive

Clay Holland, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC

Administrative Operations Executive

After growing up in Texas, Clay moved to Montana with his wife between college and physical therapy school they have been plotting and planning to find a way back since then. He earned his undergraduate degree in Spanish from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee and his doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Saint Augustine in Florida.

Clay began his physical therapy career as a staff therapist in a small outpatient clinic and transitioned into clinical leadership in acute and outpatient practices for hospitals. His passion about removing roadblocks so therapists can become specialists and experts, front desk teams can grow the business with a sense of ownership, and equipping leaders with the tools they need brought him to HRS.

Clay and his wife, Jill, moved to Montana to make the most of their time with their children, Caleb and Everett, before they move on to the next phase of their lives. The family spends as much time as they can outside with their dogs; ideally climbing, paddle boarding, on a trail somewhere, or doing anything in the snow.

Director of Accounting

Teresa Challans

Director of Accounting

You can take a girl out of the South, but you can’t take the South out of the girl. Growing up a military brat living in South Carolina, Germany, Kansas, New York, Texas and Wisconsin, Teresa’s family eventually made Georgia home. She later moved to Kansas for a fresh start with her husband. Moving back to the town she graduated from high school, she knew everything happened for a reason.

While on a break one morning, she submitted her resume for a job in Kalispell, Montana, and by lunch she had an interview set up and flew to the Flathead Valley on Friday. The rest is history as she became an integral part of our team.

At the age of 32, Teresa went back to college to earn her bachelor’s degree in business administration with a focus in business management. The message to her kids and everyone is that it’s never too late to chase your goals. In her spare time, she can be found working outside with her husband, Mark (another HRS game changer!), or faithfully waiting in line at Starbucks for her venti, non-fat, no whip, six pump white chocolate mocha.

Mark Challans

Communication Systems Specialist

Mark Challans

Communication Systems Specialist

A man on a journey never afraid to see where a new path may lead. Mark grew up in Winifred, Montana, and longed to experience life outside of the small, rural town. After high school graduation, he chose to pursue a career in the United States Army and proudly served our country for 21 years.

When Mark retired from the Army, he was faced with “what’s next?” His military career came to a close and the uncertainty of what was ahead seemed overwhelming, but the one constant that remained was the location of his next chapter – the Big Sky State. When Mark and his wife, Teresa (also one of our HRS game changers!) had the opportunity to return to Montana life, the answer was simple.

Albeit a wizard at setting up communication systems for our partners, Mark leaves technology behind in his spare time opting to take full advantage of his proximity to the great outdoors. You’ll likely find him on the water – boating or fishing, honing his woodworking skills, or jumping into an improvement project on his property.

Our Story

Health & Rehab Solutions was founded with a bold idea to be a catalyst for entrepreneurial success in healthcare. This idea started with a problem – physical therapists often lack the critical skills needed to create a successful business. As we transitioned into leadership positions within the industry, we realize this and quickly discovered it wasn’t an isolated issue. Therapists across the country needed additional business training, but who was qualified to provide it? It turns out WE were, or at least we were going to become qualified. We knew there were other options out there through other partnership models and non-physical therapy owned business structures, but the truth was that none of them understood physical therapy like we did.

We started HRS to create an innovative entrepreneurial opportunity.

Our Partners

Our partners are located throughout the United States in Montana, Colorado, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia and Washington.
