Kitty Carpenter | Encompass Healthcare

Office Facilitator

Kitty Carpenter

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, checking off her “to-do” list and unjamming 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.
