Careers

Just a short note to thank everyone on staff at 2 West for the wonderful care that you took of my husband Michael; also for the kindnesses that were shown to me and my family. You, all, made this difficult time for us easier to bear, knowing that when we left there visiting him, he would still be in excellent hands. I’m finding it difficult to express how much we appreciate what was done for him. —Thank you again, Frances D.S & family
