We are writing to express our sincere gratitude to the members of your staff who care for our mother, Lucille C. The first person we want to acknowledge is Linda Tuxbury. Linda has been our support from day one at Port Rehab. She handles all the correspondence that we received through the Mass Health application process. We trust Linda completely and feel that she goes over and beyond her duties. We are happy with Lucille’s care on the floor as well, she is always well kept and seems very happy. Port Healthcare provides us with the peace of mind knowing that our mom is being well taken care of. Lastly, we want to thank Joe for being our first point of contact at Port. Well before Lucille moved to Port, Joe gave us a tour of the facility. Thank you Joe for taking our mom when we had no idea where to move her. We will never forget your kindness. —Sincerely, Roger & Janet C.

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital is pleased to announce that we have received Deficiency Free Joint Commission Recertification surveys for both the inpatient Pulmonary Program and the outpatient Stroke Day Rehab Program, and that we are now certified for two more years. 

The Joint Commission’s Disease Specific Care Certification Program provides an evaluation of a clinical program that delivers care to a defined patient population.  By choosing to become certified, Whittier has shown their commitment to excellence in the areas of Pulmonary and Stroke Rehabilitation and medical care.
 
Bob Iannaco, Whittier Bradford Administrator said, “I am extremely proud of the results of the Joint Commission certification survey for both our Pulmonary and Stroke programs.  The survey shows our commitment to providing outstanding care in both of these patient populations as well as to the certification process.
 
Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital in Bradford, MA is owned and operated by Whittier Health Network, and is run by Administrator Robert Iannaco, Medical Director Dr. Paul Liguori, and Director of Nursing & Clinical Services Jennifer Sprague.
