Using the latest technology and innovation in its rehabilitation therapies, Encompass Health helps patients get better and get back to their lives.
WHEN AND WHY DID HEALTHSOUTH BECOME/TRANSITION TO ENCOMPASS HEALTH?
As part of a long-term plan to position HealthSouth for future success in the evolving healthcare delivery system, we acquired Encompass Home Health & Hospice in 2014. We found that keeping two separate names limited the overall awareness of us as a post-acute care provider. The name change is part of a broader rebranding process—including a new logo, company values, and updated visuals and messaging—designed to help us communicate what sets us apart as we deliver connected care and superior outcomes. The company name and NYSE ticker symbol legally changed on January 1, 2018. Although the company’s name has officially changed, the first group of locations will begin migrating to Encompass Health on April 1, and we expect the full migration to Encompass Health to be completed by Jan. 1, 2019.
NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES (MONTGOMERY): 299
