Our Staff

To all the Staff and Nurses in the Bradford Unit at Hannah Duston Healthcare Center: My mother, Eva C., was a patient at Hannah Duston Healthcare Center from February 28, 2011 to March 25, 2011 for physical and occupational therapy. On June 22, 2012, she was admitted to Hannah Duston by medical professionals. During this time, she and all our family were extremely pleased with her care. All of the Hannah Duston staff, nurses, and aids were friendly, caring, and very compassionate. They all became her caring family of friends. On behalf of my sisters, Joan M. and Maureen M., we want to extend to all of you at Hannah Duston our heartfelt “Thank You.” All of you did much to make our Mom’s stay up to her passing on June 22, 2013, as comfortable and pain free as possible. You are a great team of care-giving professionals. Thank you all. God bless your good work for our mother and all your patients. —With much appreciation, Lois S. C.

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.
