Congratulations to Don West, Patient of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation-Leakesville!
Mr. West chose Encore to be his rehabilitation provider following a total knee replacement. Mr. West shares, “Encore Rehabilitation-Leakesville was very professional with great, sweet service. They were very compassionate. I would recommend Encore to my family and friends!” Mr. West is moving very well now and has regained his strength.
“When I came to Encore Rehabilitation-Leakesville after a total hip replacement, I was having a lot of difficulty walking right and I was experiencing overall weakness due to inactivity. As they worked with me, I began to feel the strength in my legs return. My walking was corrected, and I saw a great difference in my endurance, as well as my overall well-being. I have experienced nothing but positive things at this clinic. Had it not been for their help, knowledge, and caring for me, I would not have been able to do the things that I am now able to do. Their staff is second to none. My time there was well worth it, and they are the best.” ~ Franklin Hodges, patient
Thank you, Mr. Hodges, for choosing Encore Rehabilitation-Leakesville to be your rehab provider! We are so proud of the progress you have made and wish you the best!

We will be sponsoring a blood drive on February 14 ❤in memory of Brian “Yogi” Breland. I am told by the United Blood Services representative that there is a critical need with only a two day blood supply available. The units of blood donated in this memorial blood drive will be credited to both hospitals to help decrease medical expenses. Please help spread the word in your schools, churches, and communities so that we can show strong support for this family in memory if their loved one❤❤
