About Us

Dear Ms. Grasso, I just wanted to take a minute to commend you and your staff. My mother, Gilberte H., has been in and out of Port Rehab since November 2018. It does help when I am there and witness the care and compassion extended to her in her time of need. I wish I could think of the names of all the staff there who I feel have not only done their job well, but went over and above, but I will mention the few names that stand out to me. Cara has been especially patient and kind with Mom. Paul makes her smile and laugh, and the one who really prompted me to even think to write this letter is David. I believe he’s an LPN; he administers her medications. He treats her with incredible compassion, gentleness, and kindness and allows her the dignity she deserves. I don’t want to leave out all the Occupational and Physical Therapists who work with Mom. They are all exceptionally professional and wonderful. Thank you for caring enough to have a facility which seems to encourage care for those who are in dire need of compassion. Sincerely, Elaine P.


Port Healthcare Center

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 unexcelled level of care for Whittier's patients. The fact that Whittier provides comprehensive services of the highest caliber to thousands of patients on a daily basis, while meeting their individualized needs with such sensitivity and compassion, is 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 and longterm care facilities, transitional care services, 
a home health care agency, and an adult Psychiatric Hospital. 

 

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