A quick note of thanks to two employees at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Bradford: Just a quick note to thank Kristi Peters and Parisa Rahimi-Britton, these two were just so much help as I had both of my parents in your facility at the same time. Both of these ladies were extremely helpful, courteous and were there for me when I needed them. You should be proud to have these people as employees. Glenn C.
