Careers

Dear Elaine: I would like to “Thank You” for the wonderful care I received in the TCU. My recovery is right on point. Walking without a limp and very little pain. The care I received during my 16 day stay was exceptional. Special thanks to my nurses, Chris, George, Kelly, Noelle, Kayla, Cheryl, and Debra. My aides, Greg, Billy, Maria, Thelma, Catherine. Thanks to Charlie for my laundry and Vilva for cleaning my room. Each day would start with a smile from each one of you. Caring words for the recovery process. Sincerely, Chris M.
