HealthSouth Changes Name to Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Erie
HealthSouth now has a new name. It is now called Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Erie.
The ribbon was cut for the newly named facility Thursday morning.
The Erie location will become one of 130 hospitals across the country run by Encompass Health.
The hospital will still continue to provide post-acute care for patients who are overcoming a variety of major illnesses and injuries, but it will also allow for more holistic care.
"We believe that continuum of care from acute care to rehabilitation care," said John Papalia, CEO of Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Erie. "We provide physicians everyday, rehab everyday and then our hope is to discharge patients to home."
The hospital also held a blood drive.
