Healthsouth has been around since the 80’s and will continue to serve the community but now, it will do so under a different name.
On January 1st, officials decided to change the name of the medical facility from Healthsouth to Encompass Health. They said it’s difficult to change all 128 locations at the same time so they’ve been doing it in phases.
On Monday, every Healthsouth in the state of Florida became Encompass Health. Here in Panama City, officials held an unveiling ceremony for the new name at their location off Florida Avenue.
While the name may have changed, they ensure their quality of care will remain the same. “The name reflects that we are one brand and one name, providing continuous post-acute care in both the in-patient setting as well as the home care setting,” said Encompass Health CEO, Tony Bennett.
Healthsouth has locations in 36 states and Puerto Rico. By the end of the year, all every Healthsouth location will be changed to Encompass Health.
