Rebranding ceremony held for Ludlow rehabilitation hospital

Hampden County

A rebranding ceremony was held Tuesday night for the newly named Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Western Massachusetts.

Formerly Health South Rehabilitation Hospital of Western Massachusetts, the inpatient rehabilitation hospital held an event Tuesday night to celebrate the name change.

The hospital also states that they will continue to provide the same post-acute care for patients overcoming various illnesses and injuries.

CEO John Hunt told 22News, “Well encompass meaning all-encompassing. We’ve got all aspects of rehabilitation care now in our marketplace, and we wanted to change our name to reflect that.”

The name was officially changed at the start of the new year.
