Whittier Health Network

About Us

Founded by Family

Whittier Health Network was founded by Dr. Alfred L. Arcidi and his sons. Since 1982, this family-owned healthcare organization has been providing quality care of the highest caliber. Before founding Whittier, Dr. Arcidi had a vision of a healthcare delivery system that incorporated traditional family values in everyday practices. The guiding principle behind all care at Whittier is to treat patients as if they are family members.

At Whittier, every patient is treated with compassion, dignity & respect. The caring tradition established by the Arcidi family has resulted in unprecedented growth for the Whittier facilities and an unrivaled level of care for Whittier’s patients. Whittier provides comprehensive services of the highest caliber to thousands of patients daily while meeting their individualized needs with such sensitivity and compassion is a testament to the enduring strength of  “a family approach to rehabilitation.”

The mission of Whittier Health Network is to provide high quality, comprehensive medical care to all of its residents in a warm, compassionate, caring, “family” care setting. The network is composed of Acute Rehabilitation Hospitals, several subacute rehabilitation, long-term care facilities, long-term acute care services, and transitional care services.

At Whittier, our goal is to make sure patients have the freedom to make the choices that are important to them and their families.
