After an illness or surgery, you want to get up and around as soon as possible. Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Ocala’s passion is to help you reach this goal.
Encompass Health (formerly Health South), is Marion County’s only inpatient rehabilitation hospital. Their expertise is helping patients transition home from acute care facilities.
“We want all of our patients to get as close to their level of activity before their recent surgery, accident or other health-related event that changed how they function,” says Chief Nursing Officer Linda McCarthy, who has found rehabilitation the most rewarding part of her 30 years in healthcare. “To see the pride in their faces for their accomplishments makes my heart swell.”
All rehabilitation services are provided under one roof, including occupational, physical and speech therapy; wound care; nutrition and dialysis. Physicians see patients daily and coordinate care with specialists. They hold The Joint Commission Disease-Specific Care Certification in Stroke Rehabilitation. As a hospital, Encompass Health can admit patients directly from home. They’re proud to be our community’s premier choice for the highest level of rehabilitative care.
