At Encompass Health hospitals, we believe that real relationships equal better care. We continually strive for excellence, partnering with each patient to find a treatment plan that works for them. Our goals could never be completed without the vital role of our case managers, who serve as advocates for patients and caregivers.
Case management at Encompass Health hospitals is different. From providing continuing education programs to offering tuition reimbursement, we prioritize the individual growth of our employees. Because the average length of a patient stay is longer than acute care, our case managers work with patients and caregivers to offer in-depth discharge planning services and can customize the best solution for each patient’s transition to the next level of care.
Our case managers are the catalyst on our interdisciplinary teams, focusing on coordinating care plans that work together to provide patients with seamless transitions from their current hospital or location to an inpatient rehabilitation hospital and throughout their post-acute care experience.
With our employees as our driving force, we set the standard for post-acute care. To maintain our status as an industry leader, all case managers at Encompass Health hospitals are required to obtain professional board certification through CCM© or ACM© within a specific time frame of employment. It’s this commitment to excellence that ensures our teams are highly qualified and have the knowledge and skills required to provide superior care and services to our patients.
At Encompass Health hospitals, we grow from within, promoting our existing employees to leadership positions whenever possible. To prepare our case managers, we offer continuing education programs, certification reimbursements and access to our case management professional development bonus program.
Be the connection to better patient experiences, superior outcomes and rewarding careers.
“I would describe collaboration at Encompass Health as a holistic approach in which each department is working towards the good of the patient.”

“If you’re looking for a place where you can connect with patients and know you have a supportive team behind you, Encompass Health is right for you.”
- Shannon, Hospice RN Case Manager (HHH)
I think that from Mark Tarr, president and CEO [of Encompass Health Corporation], to our environmental service aides, we are all connected to each other. Our leadership team practices what they preach. After Hurricane Harvey, I saw what our company was willing to do for their employees. In return of their support we were able to give our patients the care they deserved!
- Jennifer McKCough, director of case management
Working with our patients is incredibly rewarding. They work so hard to return to their lives, which drives us to give them our best. We all take the time to listen to our patients and to engage with them on a personal level. That’s what makes all the difference.
- Charmie Eddington, certified case manager
