2 Dear fellow employees, The year 2017 was a time of exciting growth and transition for our Company as we prepared for our highly anticipated launch of Encompass Health. With this important milestone, our diversity and inclusion initiative moved full strength ahead for its ninth year of commitment to UNITE®, further solidifying its role to embrace the diversity of our employees, patients, communities and business partners. Now operating in their third year of a strategic three-year plan, diversity and inclusion leaders and Diversity Council members took significant steps in 2017 to meet their goals for heightened momentum. Our four subcommittees turned focus toward key areas to make the greatest impact in our hospitals and our Home Office, powering attention to supplier diversity, workforce, patient experience and community partnerships. This report highlights the tremendous efforts made by these groups as they worked in unison to create more opportunities for our Company's diversity and inclusion initiative and the people and resources it touches. Read further and you will see our new Encompass Health values highlighted throughout the booklet, with articles connecting each one to specific aspects of our diversity and inclusion mission. You will also learn how employees focus on the positive, playing key roles in promoting diversity and inclusion within our hospitals for enhanced employee engagement. And find out what's ahead as we focus on 2018 with plans well underway to introduce a new name for our inclusion and diversity program – ID. These successes place our Company at the forefront as a positive example of how we are stronger together when we make diversity and inclusion a priority. Join me in finding value in each other as we do what's right for this important initiative, further setting the standard as the nation's post-acute care leader of choice. Mark J. Tarr President Chief Executive Officer Set the standard
