"My father was a short-term rehab patient for several weeks for a pelvic fracture. The care provided to him was outstanding and as a social worker, I don't believe I ever worked in such a warm, caring setting such as this. He had a difficult time adjusting to being out of his home environment, but the patience and devotion from the staff was incredible. I truly appreciate the compassion and professionalism of the staff and know that it played a huge part in his recovery."
"I have come such a long way from when I first entered this center and just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone who helped me along the way."
