HealthSouth Names Dean Taggart As Inspector General

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthSouth (NYSE: HLS) today announced the promotion of Dean Taggart to Inspector General following the recent retirement of current Senior Vice President and Inspector General Sandy Vollman. Taggart previously served as Vice President of Internal Audit and Controls for the Company.

"Sandy has made tremendous contributions to HealthSouth over the past seven years," said HealthSouth President and Chief Executive Officer Jay Grinney. "She has been an invaluable asset and played a large role in HealthSouth's repositioning and emergence as a strong, profitable, growth company."

"At the same time, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dean Taggart as HealthSouth's Inspector General," added Grinney. "Dean has been a valued member of the Internal Audit and Controls department and will now be a key member of our senior management team leading the Company's internal audit and controls program."

Taggart joined HealthSouth in 2006 as Vice President of Internal Controls and became Vice President of Internal Audit and Controls in 2008 when the two departments combined. He has more than 25 years of combined internal audit, controls and financial management experience. Taggart came to HealthSouth from Verizon Business/MCI, Inc., a leading provider of data and internet services, where he served as Director of Internal Audit. Prior to that, he served in accounting and auditing leadership roles at various public accounting firms and public and private companies, including KPMG, KLLM Transport Services and Deposit Guaranty Corp.
