Medical Center Hospital Joins Midland Memorial and Encompass Health For Inpatient Rehab
Encompass Health will now partner with Medical Center Hospital in Odessa for inpatient rehab.
According to NewsWest 9, Medical Center Hospital will follow suit with Midland Memorial Hospital and send their inpatient rehab patients to Encompass Health.
“We are pleased to partner with Medical Center Hospital of Odessa on our existing hospital in the Permian Basin,” said Frank Brown, president of Encompass Health’s southwest region. “This tri-venture is a true representation of healthcare providers coming together for the benefit of the community. We’re proud of the great work we’ve accomplished with the team at Midland Memorial Hospital over the years and couldn’t be more excited to bring another leading healthcare provider into our partnership.”
The rehab center has been serving Midland/Odessa for over 25 years with most of those years being called Health South.
"The care of our patients does not stop when they leave the hospital, thus making this partnership with Encompass Health and Midland Memorial Hospital extremely important,” said Russell Tippin, chief executive officer and president of Medical Center Health System. “To have several partners in the region all working toward a goal of making sure the people of the Permian Basin are prioritized and cared for is a big step for our community. We are proud to be a part of this venture.”
Medical Center Hospital began its partnership on July 1, 2021.
