Our Wound Care Team

Our wound care staff is like none other: we’re a great team and a close family at Encompass HealthCare and Wound Medicine, even though we’re not directly related. We’ve all been together and friends for many years. We love each other like family. And those feelings rub off on our patients to give our entire office a warm, safe, homelike atmosphere.

Our Wound Care Staff

Meet Kitty

Kitty Carpenter, an integral member of the wound care staff, Encompass HealthCare & Wound Medicine, Michigan Katherine “Kitty” Carpenter’s job title is Office Facilitator, but she’s really our “Office Everything.” If a patient needs a test, Kitty schedules it. If a patient needs a wound vac put on, she installs it. If a patient needs ANYTHING, Kitty will make it happen. She can be on one phone line scheduling an appointment, on another line getting a patient’s records faxed over, check off her “to-do” list and unjam a copy machine — all at the same time! This is no exaggeration. Our wound care staff and its attitude all begins with Kitty’s infectious smile.

Kitty is an all-encompassing team player and she does it all with the most “can-do” attitude you will ever experience. (Notice that she’s listed first — even before Dr. Ruben!)

 

Bruce Ruben, Medical Director and leader of the wound care staff, Encompass HealthCare & Wound Medicine, Michigan

Meet Bruce E. Ruben, M.D.

Dr. Ruben is the Founder and Medical Director at Encompass HealthCare. Our friendly family atmosphere, our dedication to our patients and our commitment to be the best wound care facility in the country are all rooted in Dr. Ruben. He started with a dream to create a comprehensive outpatient center for infection and wound care, precluding hospitalization. And today, with our in-office treatments for infectious disease, wound care and the addition of The Drake House, a temporary residence for out-of-town and physically-injured patients, Dr. Ruben’s dream has been realized.
