Dear Leo: I am writing on behalf of my father, Normand C. and our family. As you know we spoke shortly after my father fractured his hip and underwent surgery. It was a difficult time for us especially my mother. The staff at Hannah Duston was outstanding. Your administrator, Chris Olenio, went out of his way to make my father comfortable and our family welcome. He was willing to assist with even our most minor request. My mother wanted to particularly thank Brian, the physical therapist, and Ted, one of his nurses. Brian was extremely understanding of my father’s situation and condition. Ted promptly recognized the crisis that my father was going through and assisted him in getting him to the hospital for appropriate care. Our whole family wanted me to thank you and your staff at Hannah Duston. You and your facility made a big difference in my father’s care and my family’s peace of mind. Very truly yours, Daniel T. C.

MARION — The Sippican Healthcare Center celebrated its 25th anniversary with a party on Thursday evening. The center had a pianist in the lobby, and chairs and tables set up on the back patio where food and drinks were available for guests.

According to the center’s activity director, Anne O’Connell-Bishop, around 100 invitations were sent out to people from the Marion community, those who helped the center succeed or provided services to its residents.

O’Connell-Bishop emphasized the importance of working well with the town to meet the needs of the residents.

It’s important to work with the community,” she said. “We have to have a good relationship with all the people who give their time to us. It takes a team of people to take care of the needs, and we are fortunate to have a great community in Marion.

Working with Marion residents to provide care and services to the center’s residents means a lot to the center’s administrator, Karen Wadlow.

A resident told us we’re a hidden gem,” she said. “It means a lot because of all the special things we try and do for our residents.”

The Sippican Healthcare Center opened in 1990 as a 123 bed facility offering medical, nursing and rehabilitation care, as well as nursing and therapeutic services.
