Our Staff

WE JUST RECEIVED THIS LETTER AT THE WHITTIER PAVILION Dear Director of Whittier Pavilion, I’m writing this letter of appreciation of your entire staff including all nurses, caseworkers, mental health personnel, and even food staff servers. They have all treated me with the utmost respect and compassion in any and all dealings I’ve had with them. I’m thoroughly impressed with my stay here which initially I wasn’t looking forward to but in my interaction with your staff I’ve been reasoned with and therefore calmed and relaxed afterwards. I will certainly recommend this facility to any people I know that may be in need of a crisis intervention hospital. I sincerely admit that, so thank you very much for all your care and diligence not just for me but for any patients I’ve seen in my past week here everyone was dealt with compassion, dignity and a lot of patience on your staff’s behalf!!! Thanks again and have a wonderful New Year of of 2016. Yours truly


The Whittier Pavilion
