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 is an acute rehabilitation hospital that is located in the Merrimack Valley to conveniently service patients throughout New England. Our team of interdisciplinary rehabilitation professionals provides inpatient, outpatient, pharmacist and home health services.
As a member of the Whittier Health Network, which has been providing comprehensive healthcare services to New England patients since 1982, we are equipped to provide complex medical treatments and procedures to patients who are acutely ill, have multiple complications and those who require specialty care and continuous monitoring, requiring a longer length of stay. We take great pride in our commitment to total patient care, professionalism and respect, provided throughout the rehabilitation process, helping us restore, as fully as possible, the skills, confidence and independence our patients need to return to a quality, satisfying life. We have helped thousands of patients return home after an injury or illness, which is illustrated by our superior clinical outcomes.
Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Bradford provides specialty care designed for medically complex patients who require a longer length of stay. Patients are admitted following treatment in the traditional acute care hospital when they no longer require intensive diagnostic procedures. The care provided is more individualized and resource-intensive than what is provided in a sub-acute or skilled nursing facility.
