WICHITA — Dallas-based Encompass Home Health & Hospice is moving its Wichita office to a more centralized site.
The company is moving from 8415 E. 32nd St. North to the Farm Credit Bank Building at 245 N. Waco. At almost 4,000 square feet, Encompass will be using about the same square footage it does now.
The office has three divisions: hospice, home health for the elderly and a pediatric division.
"Nurses and therapists see patients all over the city, so being kind of centrally located helps," says Andrew Ingram, vice president of operations for Encompass in Dallas.
He says Encompass' Hutchinson office recently moved to a more functional space as well.
Tony Utter of Utter Commercial Real Estate handled the Farm Credit deal along with Tim Fisher of Cresa in Kansas City.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
