Geropsychiatric Unit

As the result of a minor auto accident, and some related illnesses, I was referred to the Whittier Rehabilitation Center. The quality of care that I received from the caring and highly trained staff of assistants, therapists, nurses and doctors made the critical difference in my recovery. They worked with my family and I to make my stay as productive and short as possible, and to prepare me to be independent when I returned home. I want to thank them publicly for all that they did for me. In particular, I want to extend my thanks to Dr. Alfred Arcidi and Leo Curtin, who clearly set the tone and the expectations for the quality of care. As a resident of Haverhill, I found Whittier to be an outstanding resource.”
