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

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Westborough underwent a total renovation this spring and summer. Major upgrades and/or additions were made to various areas throughout the hospital: 

• Total renovation and upgrades to the Aquatic Therapy Department (upgrades to pool and pool mechanics, new locker rooms and new layout)
• Renovations and upgrades to Whittier Way (our community re-entry program that includes a grocery store, fully operational ATM, a mock movie theatre and a full sized SUV automobile)
• We added a private pediatric treatment room/gym with a separate waiting area for parents that allows them to view their children in therapy
• "Fore" the patients who are dedicated to Golf, we added in a Golf Driving Range Simulator accompanied by an actual putting green
• Total renovation to our current cafeteria, reopened as the Whittier Bistro, which provides service and catering to the hospital but also to businesses in the local vicinity
• Creation of a new treatment area to house our new Neuro Day Rehab Program which opened recently in the Fall 2014. The new neuro rehab gym is almost complete—it is just awaiting some equipment.
