When tragedy strikes someone they love and medical custody outside the home is necessary, the most difficult decision a spouse or child has to make is “who do I trust with their care.” After a debilitating stroke and years of home care it was medically necessary for Joan to be professionally attended to. After much family investigation and study we chose Hannah Duston Health Care Center Haverhill. It proved to be a wise decision. All of you, from the head staff nurse to the cleaning crew treated Joan with professional care and love. Her daily food requests were met with a smile. Helping her win at Bingo showed your concern for her happiness. Proper hygiene was always meticulous. All medical needs were provided promptly even to the end. Requests made during many visits by our family always were handled quickly and professionally. THANK YOU, from The B. Family, for being an extended loving, caring family for Joan during her stay with you. Sincerely, Donald B.and Family

Four Massachusetts Whittier Health Network facilities rated 5 Star by US News & World Report.

 

 

On February 26, 2014 U.S. News & World Report released its Best Nursing Homes 2014, and we are proud to report that four Whittier Health Network Facilities in Massachusetts have earned 5 Star “Best Nursing Homes in 2014” ratings:

• Oak Knoll Healthcare Center (Framingham, MA)
• Whittier Westborough Transitional Care Unit (Westborough, MA)
• Daniels House Nursing Home (Reading, MA)
• Nemasket Healthcare Center (Middleborough, MA)

Congratulations to the Administrators and Staff who made this happen! Alfred Arcidi, Senior Vice President of Whittier Health Network, said the ratings are “proof of our organization-wide commitment to provide safe, high-quality care, treatment and services on an ongoing basis.”

Kenneth Cegelski, Regional Administrator at Whittier Health Network, said that our staff is always focused on the company goal to “continuously raise quality and safety to higher levels.”

Now in its sixth year, U.S. News’ Best Nursing Homes is designed to help the millions of Americans who will spend time in a nursing home in 2014. Best Nursing Homes provides data and information on care, safety, health inspections, staffing and more for nearly every nursing facility in the U.S. Each facility’s profile displays health and fire violations, performance in important clinical categories and how much time nursing staff spends with residents.

To create Best Nursing Homes 2014, U.S. News drew on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Homes” designation to facilities that recently earned the agency’s highest overall rating of five stars.
