HealthSouth Lakeshore Becomes Encompass Health Lakeshore and Opens New Wing
As part of the rebranding, HealthSouth Lakeshore Rehabilitation Hospital is re-named Encompass Health Lakeshore Rehabilitation Hospital.
April marks a special milestone for the inpatient rehabilitation hospital as it will open its new patient wing. The 20,220-square-foot addition includes more space for patient rooms, a nursing station, a day room and more space for programming and therapy needs. The hospital's number of patient beds will not change, but it increases the number of private patient rooms from 20 to 64.
