Stroke team leaders

In recognition of Stroke Awareness Month, we’d like to introduce the team leaders of our newly established stroke team, Kat Dozier and Devin Smith.

Kat is an occupational therapist and has been with Encompass Health since we first opened in 2018. She recognizes the difficulties that patients face when they’ve had a stroke and is passionate about getting them back to their highest functioning level through rehabilitation. Kat has also completed extensive training to receive her Neuro-Developmental Treatment Certification, which is utilized with patients who have sustained strokes or other brain injuries.

Devin is a registered nurse whose passion for stroke patients stems from being able to see them recover physically and mentally. As a team leader for the stroke team, he aspires to provide Encompass Health Bluffton with a great program that focuses on patient centered care and enhanced patient and family education. Devin notes that this will not only better the patients’ post-stroke outcomes, but help them get back to their normal lives.
