Dear Ms. Grasso: Our entire family would like to sincerely thank your facility and its staff for the marvelous job they all did in caring for Teddy L. Without exception each one of your staff gave sincere, loving, compassionate, empathetic, nurturing and patient care as we all worked through this climactic event. You should be very proud to have a team of such excellent professionals. Tun, Jeff, Beth, Ann, Anna, Brian, were just some of your team members that were interfacing with us so delicately. I believe Tun even stayed several evenings well past his shift to sit with Teddy - a sacrifice of love. When I told my friends about the excellent care you provided by repositioning, cleaning and changing Teddy so frequently, they were so impressed. It kept our loved one very calm and comfortable. The entire process was like a feather floating to the floor. Your professionals made the best out of an awful reality. Please forgive me by not mentioning by name all the ones that gave such incredible support. We look forward to working with you all as Peggy is still in your capable hands. With immense gratitude, Jim and Peggy F. along with the extended family

HAVERHILL — The same kind of approach to patient care offered at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital in Haverhill is slated to be featured at a new hospital in China.

"The goal is to bring American hospital care to China," said Alfred Arcidi, senior vice president of Whittier Health Network and affiliates.

He noted that between 5 million and 7 million Chinese people come to the United States each year for health care and that once this hospital is built, they will have a new option much closer to home.

"They have people leaving for care, so if they can provide the American care they are looking for, it's a win-win for everybody," Arcidi said.

Arcidi said the Whittier Health Network will be partnering with the Hainan Lecheng Investment Company Ltd. and its chairman, Tang XiXian, to bring first-class, patient-centered rehabilitation services to China. 

Over the next three years, Whittier will contribute its comprehensive expertise and advice during the planning stages of a new Boao-Sino U.S. International Hospital. 

Whittier will provide personnel, including doctors, senior executives, and other rehabilitation staff.

As currently planned, the hospital, which will be built in the Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone in Hainan Province, will have approximately 2,000 beds and be based on American best-standard practices for delivering services.

Arcidi said its goal will be to offer those services to the local population in China as a first priority, and to attract international medical tourism, as well.
