Encompass Health celebrates five years serving the Modesto community, looks forward to many more

Seth Rogers, Chief Executive Officer, Encompass Health of Modesto

5 year anniversary

This week, Encompass Health of Modesto celebrates five years of providing innovative rehabilitation services to the Modesto community and beyond. As the area continues to grow and the need for rehabilitation services continues to expand, we have the opportunity – and the responsibility – to continue providing high quality care close to home and identifying new ways to connect with the communities we serve.

As we reflect on the past five years, we celebrate successes and growth made possible through hard work and dedication from our hospital leadership, providers, therapy teams, partners and the local community. Encompass Health opened its doors to patients on October 20, 2016, as a 50-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital and the only freestanding inpatient rehabilitation hospital in the area.

Mostly importantly, over the span of the past five years Encompass Health has discharged nearly 4,000 patients back to their local communities in Modesto and the surrounding areas with more independence and the ability to continue doing the daily activities they love, like fishing in nearby lakes and rivers, attending events at the Gallo Center for the Arts, and visiting other areas in the region, such as San Francisco, Napa Wine Country, Redwood National Park, and Yosemite National Park. Our care teams have provided rehabilitative care to patients recovering from strokes, amputations, and other complex neurological and orthopedic conditions. Additionally, over the past 20 months, our hospital has cared for a number of patients recovering from COVID-19, many with inspiring stories of recovery.

Encompass Health of Modesto is able to reach more people and change more lives because of the local relationships and referrals from nearby acute care hospitals in Stanislaus County, as well as regular patient referrals from San Francisco, Sacramento, and Merced.

Our trusted reputation extends not only to the care we provide patients, but also to the atmosphere where our hospital team of more than 200 employees comes to work each day. Encompass Health has been named one of the 2021 FORTUNE® “World’s Most Admired Companies” and is ranked as one of Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For.” Encompass Health of Modesto is part of a large national network of hospitals with more than 31,000 employees and the company had more than 189,000 patient discharges in 2020.

Help us celebrate Encompass Health of Modesto’s five year anniversary of serving the community by thanking our care teams for all they do to help individuals return to the lives and families they love. We look forward to continuing to serve your family, your colleagues, your loved ones and others in our community and beyond for many years to come.
