Careers

Dear Dr. Arcidi: It is with great pleasure that I write to you about the care that my father received at your hospital. He was not there long, but the care was excellent. I especially want to thank Mrs. Joann Sharp and Dr. Jay Turchetta...It does and will continue to have Whittier Rehabilitation Hospitals be known for their extra touch of caring for people in the harder times of their lives. I am sincerely grateful to you and your sons for the vision that you have shown to design such a professional, caring facility.
