Encompass Health celebrates 25 years of service


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Encompass Rehabilitation Hospital celebrated a milestone Thursday — 25 years of service.

25 years is a big number for the organization, so what other way to celebrate other than a big party. Awards were given to longtime employees, patients told stories, and of course, enjoyed some great food.

Employees said seeing 25 years of service is a special feeling.

“It’s very special for us,” said Will Craig, the Director of Business Development. “Margaret and I have been here for 25 years and we have seen a lot of miracles.”

Craig said the miracles ranged from all over.

“Yes, I seen patients that could not walk, they came in on a stretcher and I seen them walk out. We celebrated in that success, and so we’re just proud to be able to have this for our community here in Dothan.”

Encompass health says it hopes to keep succeeding toward an additional 25 years.

“We have to continue with the great staff that we have and hopefully be able to expand by serving more patients,” CEO Margaret Futch said.

The organization plans to have another celebration for 30 years of service.
