What I enjoy most about Encompass Health: Encompass Health is the one of the few places that I have worked that is sincerely invested in its employees. I have been with the company for a few short years and have been given opportunities to grow both personally and professionally that I have never had elsewhere. Knowing that I am solving problems both small and large for patients, visitors and staff, ensuring their wellbeing and contributing to the success of my hospital is intrinsically rewarding for me beyond words.
