Encompass Health delivers care that makes a difference. In all of our locations, we lead the way to help patients achieve superior outcomes. See our different approach in improving patient experience and working as a team with our patients, employees and partners.
In the 32 years Hardin Memorial Health and Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Lakeview have worked together to care for patients, they have built strong bonds to promote health in the community and state. The collaboration of acute care hospitals working to get patients to the right post-acute setting at the right time plays a vital role in reducing the cost of care in the long term---helping to avoid unnecessary emergency room visits, reducing hospital readmission rates and providing a better quality of life for patients in their home and community. While the general acute care hospital often has the task of ensuring the patient’s medical status is stable, post-acute providers often are the next step in helping the patient regain function to be able to return to their home and community.

Partnering with Encompass Health has been an exemplary model of best practice for our Health Care organization and community. Not only do we rely and trust the clinicians at Encompass with the care of our patients, we also trust them with the co-education and development of our acute care staff. Our relationship goes well beyond a simple hand-off of patient care. It also integrates clinical knowledge, communication and advanced technology that maximizes the outcomes and satisfaction of our patients as well as our Providers. We could not have achieved our system level of success without them!
