About Us

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


Oak Knoll Healthcare Center

Whittier Health Network was founded by Dr. Alfred L. Arcidi and his sons. Since 1982, this family owned healthcare organization has been providing quality care of the highest caliber. Before founding Whittier,
Dr. Arcidi had a vision of a healthcare delivery system that incorporated traditional family values in everyday practices. The guiding principle behind all care at Whittier is to treat patients as if they are family members. At Whittier, every patient is treated with compassion, dignity & respect. The caring tradition established by the Arcidi family has resulted in unprecedented growth for the Whittier facilities and an unexcelled level of care for Whittier's patients. The fact that Whittier provides comprehensive services of the highest caliber to thousands of patients on a daily basis, while meeting their individualized needs with such sensitivity and compassion, is testament to the enduring strength of "a family approach to rehabilitation."

The mission of Whittier Health Network is to provide high quality, comprehensive, medical care to all of its residents in a warm, compassionate, caring, “family” care setting. The network is composed of Acute Rehabilitation Hospitals, several subacute rehabilitation and longterm care facilities, transitional care services, 
a home health care agency, and an adult Psychiatric Hospital. 

 

At Whittier our goal is to make sure patients have the freedom to make the choices that are important to them and their families.
