Careers

On May 25, 2014, my wife, Janice H., passed away at the age of 49, due to complications from a 28 year battle with multiple sclerosis. She had been under the great care of Oak Knoll Healthcare Center for over eleven years. She was treated with the utmost respect and dignity that could ever be expected. Some of the staff went above and beyond to make her life as comfortable as possible. I have to write you this letter to tell you how much my family and myself appreciate what Oak Knoll did for Janice in helping her ”live” at Oak Knoll for eleven years. Thank you for providing a safe and comfortable environment for Janice. Sincerely, Harold C. H. III
