About HealthSouth

Company Description

The Leader in Post-Acute Care
With nearly 130 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in 33 states and Puerto Rico, HealthSouth is a major national presence in post-acute care. Our specialty is rehabilitation as a medical and clinical science - a science we help to advance through cutting-edge technologies, physician-supervised care and innovative practices.

On a statistical level, the results of our approach to rehabilitation show up, year after year, through impressive patient-outcomes. On a personal level, the results show up in lives dramatically changed for the better, and often in less time than is typical industry-wide.

Mission & Values

To be the healthcare company of choice for patients, employees, physicians and shareholders by providing high quality care in the communities we serve. At HealthSouth, the cornerstone of our operations is the delivery of quality healthcare in the most appropriate, safe, patient-centered environment.

Provider of Choice, Employer of Choice:
Strong, stable and growing, HealthSouth is committed to being the provider of choice - and employer of choice - in post-acute care. Our patients benefit from our consistently higher level of care, and our therapists and nurses enjoy working in well-equipped hospitals and with access to excellent knowledge resources and training programs.

HealthSouth hospitals provide all the challenge of acute care settings, but with two key advantages most acute care settings don’t offer: quality time with patients and patients families and the ability, time and again, to observe your patients progress throughout their continuum of care.

Environments for Learning:
Whether as a therapist or nurse, you'll find many experienced members of the HealthSouth team who are eager to help you learn and develop your skills in rehabilitation. The staff in our hospitals include expert clinicians who are also proven coaches, communicators and mentors in all fields of therapy and in rehabilitative nursing care. Additionally, HealthSouth assists with professional development through in-person courses, live webinars, and online instruction modules as well tuition reimbursement and career ladders. 

HealthSouth's various sub-specialization programs, such as for Stroke, Brain Injury and Parkinson’s disease, as well as orthopedics and other neuro disorders provide avenues for the development and practice of highly specialized skills and knowledge. Therapists and nurses also have the option of career mobility throughout the HealthSouth network of hospitals.
