Dear Elaine: It is with profound appreciation that I write this letter to you to acknowledge the outstanding care that I received during my three week stay on the Transitional Care Unit. Without exception every member of the staff demonstrated professional behavior and standards in the performance of their duties and responsibilities. Today I am able to walk independently due in large part to the care I received while on the TCU. I have every confidence that my recovery was significantly enhanced by the caring attitudes and competent practices of the staff. I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to the following individuals: Chris, Kayla, Nicole, George, Sheryl, Greg, Brittany and Billy. I also want to extend my sincere appreciation to Allison, Catherine, Kelly and Maria who consistently went above and beyond in attending to my clinical and personal needs. Elaine, may I take this opportunity to thank you for the countless kindnesses and professional courtesies you extended to me. I assure you that they were deeply appreciated. God Bless. —Sincerely, Patricia D, MS, MA, RN (Retired)

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Bradford

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital in Bradford is now the region’s first rehab hospital to offer the Anti-Gravity Treadmill® 

 

 

The innovative AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a game changer in physical therapy rehabilitation and we are thrilled to now offer this technology to our patients!

Patients or athletes dealing with lower body injuries, chronic pain or neurological conditions that inhibit mobility, can benefit from the unweighting capabilities of the Anti-Gravity Treadmill. The Anti-Gravity Treadmill helps a broad spectrum of people – top level athletes, orthopedic and neurologic patients, pediatric, geriatrics and those looking to lose weight – to achieve their personal health, wellness or performance goals.

With its unique unweighting capabilities, the Anti-Gravity Treadmill allows training and rehabilitation to move forward by:
• Allowing walking or running with no pain while maintaining a normal gait
• Reducing stress on joints and injured areas of the lower body
• Giving patients the confidence and ability to run or walk longer and recover faster with less pain

We are extremely excited about being the region’s first rehabilitation hospital to offer this state of the art technology.” —Robert Iannaco, Administrator at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Bradford
