Transitional Care Units

To all the Staff and Nurses in the Bradford Unit at Hannah Duston Healthcare Center: My mother, Eva C., was a patient at Hannah Duston Healthcare Center from February 28, 2011 to March 25, 2011 for physical and occupational therapy. On June 22, 2012, she was admitted to Hannah Duston by medical professionals. During this time, she and all our family were extremely pleased with her care. All of the Hannah Duston staff, nurses, and aids were friendly, caring, and very compassionate. They all became her caring family of friends. On behalf of my sisters, Joan M. and Maureen M., we want to extend to all of you at Hannah Duston our heartfelt “Thank You.” All of you did much to make our Mom’s stay up to her passing on June 22, 2013, as comfortable and pain free as possible. You are a great team of care-giving professionals. Thank you all. God bless your good work for our mother and all your patients. —With much appreciation, Lois S. C.
