You might have noticed the new name in healthcare recently. However, Encompass Health is not new to the Magic City or the industry. Last year, the company transformed itself to better reflect its evolving business model and national footprint. Now that the rebrand is complete, it is time to let our audience in on a little secret: this revamped Birmingham-based company is pretty awesome!
Get to Know Encompass Health. (Chances are you already do!)
Encompass Health, comprised of 130 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and 278 home health and hospice agencies, does business in 36 states and Puerto Rico. The company has been headquartered here in Birmingham since 1982.
Encompass Health also has two hospitals in the Birmingham area—Encompass Health Lakeshore Rehabilitation Hospital and Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Shelby County.
What’s in a name?
The Birmingham-based health care provider HealthSouth began the process of rebranding a little over two years ago. Although headquartered in Birmingham, the company’s national footprint was rapidly expanding. No longer served by their previous name, leadership decided to rebrand.
The company chose the Encompass Health moniker because it “encompassed,” if you will, both business segments. It also represented the company’s mission to deliver high-quality, cost-effective, integrated care.
“We believe the name Encompass Health reflects our commitment to setting new standards for delivering better care across the post-acute continuum. As we move forward under a new name, we will continue to build on our strong foundation as an integrated provider of inpatient and home-based care.”Encompass Health President and CEO Mark Tarr
Employees hand in building the new brand
To ensure the guiding principles truly reflected the culture of the company and its commitment to serving patients, Encompass Health looked to the company’s foundation—its people—to create the values. The company sent out postcards to 200 Encompass Health locations. More than 11,100 employees participated in the conversation as to what should drive the Encompass Health brand!
“Our values truly reflect our new brand and name,” Tarr said. “More importantly, they highlight what goes on in our hospitals and home health and hospice locations daily because they were in fact created for employees, by employees.”Encompass Health President and CEO Mark Tarr
State-of-the-art Encompass Health campus
Step aside, Google and Amazon! The new seven-story building resides on a 22-acre campus in Liberty Park. From the start, the company wanted to design a campus with employees in mind. To get the perfect working environment, building designers then turned to employees to help co-create an office environment they could enjoy.
Through a series of questionnaires, Encompass Health employees were clear about what they wanted:
- Natural light
- Collaborative workspaces
- Emphasis on health and wellness in the office
Encompass Health’s New Building
The company delivered with the new building with floor to ceiling windows and open, collaborative workspaces. Even the cubicle spaces don’t ‘feel’ like traditional cubicles. The walls are low and translucent, providing a free-flowing atmosphere. The break areas offer a modern and sleek place to talk about projects or catch up with co-workers.
Employees moved into the new building in Liberty Park in April 2018. Since then, they’ve enjoyed the many amenities built into the new campus. The outdoor walking trail, indoor gym facility and new cafeteria are all perks that come with the new campus.
What it’s really like inside
We stopped by to check out the new headquarters last week. The space could rival a small scale Google campus! (Although they don’t make their interns wear funny hats—perhaps that’s why they’ve got students flooding in from around the country to participate in their intern program! More on that soon.)
