Our Staff

Dear JoAnn: I want to personally thank you, and Kim, and the entire qualified staff at Masconomet Healthcare for your incredible and crucial part in my successful rehabilitation. As you know, when I arrived at Masconomet last Spring, I was in pretty bad shape and was unable to walk. I was wheelchair bound having suffered extensive injuries from an automobile accident last January. The worst of the damage was having suffered two broken legs, both upper and lower legs were broken. I now have steel plates in both of my legs, from my hips to my knees and from my knees down to my ankles. I credit my fast moving recuperation and my ability to walk again to the people at Masconomet, particularly to Bill Carey. Under Bill’s care and guidance and his constant pushing me to limits that I didn’t think possible, along with his continued positive motivation, I began to actually take my first steps again a lot sooner than I thought possible. Today, I am back working, driving a new car, and enjoying life to its fullest. This would not be possible without your help and the help and kindness of all of the folks at Masconomet. I will be forever grateful to you all. Thanks a million, Jim S.

Specialty: Wound Care Specialist

Bradford, MA - Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital

Kim Peters on healing patients at The Whittier Wound Center at Bradford: “Whittier is an amazing place to practice wound care...I get to work with a great team in a setting that presents many challenging cases...we are able to use cutting edge modalities and products that rely on today's best and most current evidence-based practice guidelines, therefore, our results are excellent...

For me, when I realized that there was a nursing specialty that once I became good at, I could make such a difference in patient's lives, I knew wound care was for me. Because wounds are frequently painful and debilitating, this specialty allows me to be part of a process that frequently alleviates suffering and returns the patient to functioning—what's better than that?

And the fact that our program allows us to follow the patient through the continuum of care (hospital, homecare and outpatient) is a win-win situation for the patients and the wound team. Wound care has become a very rewarding career for me and being a part of so many patients’ recovery is a true privilege.
