Let us tell you about Encompass HealthCare & Wound Medicine! Encompass Healthcare & Wound Medicine is an outpatient facility featuring advanced wound care, I.V. antibiotic therapies, hyperbaric oxygen treatments, stem cell and artificial skin grafts; wound debridement, wound vacuum systems, complete nutritional assessments, and traditional Chinese medicine. Because of the unique nature of our patient base, we are open 7 days a week and we draw patients from not only all of Southeastern Michigan and surrounding cities, including, Detroit, Southfield, Farmington, Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield, Novi, Northville, Commerce Township, and Flint, but from other states and nationwide as well.
Encompass is unique because we are led by triple board certified Medical Director and physician Bruce E. Ruben M.D., we have an unprecedented barrier free design (with handicapped accessibility), we offer hospital level equipment in our outpatient facility, and we have lovable wound dogs who provide therapy to our patients. Encompass is open 7 days a week, including the weekends! We like to say, “Infections don’t know what day of the week it is!”
In addition, we offer residential accommodations for those who live out of state or for those who are physically injured and need attendant care. This sister home is called The Drake House and it’s about 15 minutes from our main office.
Furthermore, Encompass HealthCare was built to accommodate quadriplegic, paraplegic and wheelchair/disabled patients. Our ground floor entry into our suite from the outside has plenty of handicapped parking right outside of our front door. (We also have an entryway into our office from the main hallway.) Our office is equipped with hospital-level equipment including a lift, an indirect calorimeter, a seated scale, a transcutaneous oximeter (which measures the amount of oxygen getting to a wound site,) skin substitutes and more. We accommodate our disabled patients with automatic doors, a roll-in Shower, 5-ft.-wide hallways, reinforced bathroom safety bars & handles, & 48-in.-high walls so that they can see the entire office.
Finally, our friendly staff is something else that sets us apart. Simply walk in and be greeted by a friendly face or ask Julia to make your favorite protein smoothie. Coffee and tea are yours to have just about any way you like it with cream, sugar, splenda and more.
