100 Most Influential People in Healthcare – 2018
President and CEO, Encompass Health
Tarr has been CEO since late 2016. Before that, he was executive vice president and chief operating officer for the company, which was formerly known as HealthSouth. The large post-acute provider saw revenue growth in the second quarter from volume and pricing in inpatient rehab. It also saw growth in home health and hospice. "We are moving forward with our strategic initiatives positioning our company to be the post-acute provider of choice with a proven record of delivering high-quality, cost-effective integrated care," Tarr said. "We continue to see growth opportunities in both business segments as the demographic tailwind resulting from the aging of the population is driving increased demand for the services we provide."
