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

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Bradford

Heroic Haverhill mom who risked her life to save her baby is improving tremendously at Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital.

We are so proud to report that Christina Simoes is now able to move both of her legs and recently sat up for the first time since she was hurt.

Christina broke her back last Wednesday when she jumped three stories from a burning building to save her little boy after a fire engulfed her Haverhill apartment building. She spent the past week confined to a bed, but with the help of her therapists twice a day at Whittier, she can now visualize the realization of her two goals: to walk again, but first and foremost to hold Cameron, in her arms standing up, once again. 

I know that even if it takes a year, you know, I’m going to be able to hold him and pick him up and do all my mommy duties,” she said.

We are honored to help her achieve her goals and get on track to getting back to her life!
