COLUMBIA, S.C., June 29, 2018 – HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Columbia will unveil their new name and brand as part of their Company’s name change and rebranding initiative. Beginning July 1, the inpatient rehabilitation hospital will be known as Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Columbia.

This rebrand is simply a way to reconfirm our commitment to our patients.”
