It's official, HealthSouth is now Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Erie! A Ribbon Cutting ceremony was held this morning to celebrate the new name and brand which went into effect January 1st. The facility is located at 14 East 2nd Street in downtown Erie.
"Our new Encompass Health brand reflects more than the change of our name. It reinforces our commitment to working together to continuously improve the care we provide our patients,” said John Papalia, CEO of Encompass Health Erie. “With a focus on clinical collaboration and strengthening relationships, we will continue to play an important role in making a difference in the lives of our patients.”
As a national leader in post-acute care, Encompass Health (NYSE: EHC) has a national footprint that spans 130 hospitals and 273 home health & hospice locations in 36 states and Puerto Rico. Driven by a set of shared values, Encompass Health is the result of the union between HealthSouth Corporation and Encompass Home Health & Hospice, and is ranked as one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For.
A blood drive is being held all day, and this evening we will reconvene as Encompass Health will host our first Business After Hours of the year!
