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.

Oak Knoll Healthcare Center

Oak Knoll Healthcare Center welcomes new Administrator, Susan Stanton.

Ms. Stanton was born in Boston and grew up in Chelmsford, MA.   She started her career in health care as a nursing assistant serving the developmentally disabled.  Upon graduation from high school she attended Barry University in Miami, FL and received her Masters degree in Business Administration.  She was employed as a Social Service Director and then an Admissions coordinator in long term care for many years.  She completed the AIT internship in Florida with HCR Manor Care, and has been a licensed Administrator for the past 22 years.

Oak Knoll Healthcare Center is excited to welcome Ms. Stanton, who says: “Over the years I have worked for both large and small corporations and I am pleased to join Whittier Health Care.  Given that the Oak Knoll facility is family owned there is a special sense of pride and dedication amongst the employees who strive to provide quality care for our residents.  That sense of caring and devotion is not always present within the larger corporations.  I look forward to meeting all of you.

Her passion for high quality patient care and involvement with the community in which she lives will be an asset to the family of professionals at Oak Knoll Healthcare Center and to all of our residents.
