BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 22, 2018 – HealthSouth Lakeshore Rehabilitation Hospital will unveil its new name and brand as part of its company’s name change and rebranding initiative. Beginning April 1, the inpatient rehabilitation hospital will be known as Encompass Health Lakeshore Rehabilitation Hospital and will continue to provide the same high-quality post-acute care for patients overcoming a variety of debilitating illnesses and injuries.
“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 Terry Brown, regional vice president of operations for Encompass Health’s southeast region. “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.”
April also marks a special milestone for the inpatient rehabilitation hospital as it will open its new patient wing. The 20,220-square-foot addition includes more space for patient rooms, a nursing station, a day room and more space for programming and therapy needs. The hospital’s number of patient beds will not change, but it increases the number of private patient rooms from 20 to 64.
Birmingham, Alabama-based HealthSouth Corporation launched its new name and brand on Jan. 1, 2018 and will be transitioning its 127 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, 200 home health locations and 37 hospice agencies serving 36 states and Puerto Rico through 2019. All of the Company’s post-acute care service locations in Alabama will migrate to the Encompass Health name and branding on April 1.
