Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of New England now offering all private rooms

WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 13, 2021 – Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of New England in Woburn moved to private rooms for all patients beginning September 8. The hospital now offers 87 private rooms for inpatient rehabilitation patients recovering from a serious injury or illness.

“Encompass Health of New England has been serving our local community for over 50 years, and we are excited about the change in operations to offer all private rooms to our patients going forward,” said David Coggins, CEO of Encompass Health of New England. “Moving to all private rooms adds one more layer of protection for our infection control practices while improving our patient and family experience.”

Encompass Health of New England in Woburn previously offered a combination of private and semi-private rooms to patients. Hospital leadership identified the opportunity to move to all private rooms by reconfiguring the use of existing space and closed units thereby maximizing the square footage of the hospital.
