Two area hospitals are changing their names. Starting January 1, the HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital in Altoona will be known as Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Altoona, and HealthSouth Nittany Valley in Pleasant Gap, will be called Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Nittany Valley
Both hospitals will continue to provide inpatient rehab care for patients overcoming a variety of major 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 Scott Filler, CEO of Encompass Health Altoona. “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.”
