Dear Stacy: It’s difficult to find the right — or even enough — words to express how thankful my wife and I are for the wonderful care your staff provided to me during my recent month’s long recovery from bladder surgery. From Day 1 every single person with whom we came in contact treated us with respect, patience and kindness and always made us feel that my return to good health was really important to each of them! And, even on days when I took a little step backwards, along with professionalism, everyone brought cheer and even more encouragement...and this was from every level of your staff. It’s just really nice to be able to say, “If we had to go to rehab at any point in the future, Nemasket would be our first choice!” Thank you again for all that you and your staff have done for us! Yours truly, Russell L.

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital Westborough

Recent Whittier renovations bring improvements to both patients and the local community. 

 

 

Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital-Westborough underwent a total renovation this spring and summer. Major upgrades and/or additions were made to various areas throughout the hospital: 

• Total renovation and upgrades to the Aquatic Therapy Department (upgrades to pool and pool mechanics, new locker rooms and new layout)
• Renovations and upgrades to Whittier Way (our community re-entry program that includes a grocery store, fully operational ATM, a mock movie theatre and a full sized SUV automobile)
• We added a private pediatric treatment room/gym with a separate waiting area for parents that allows them to view their children in therapy
• "Fore" the patients who are dedicated to Golf, we added in a Golf Driving Range Simulator accompanied by an actual putting green
• Total renovation to our current cafeteria, reopened as the Whittier Bistro, which provides service and catering to the hospital but also to businesses in the local vicinity
• Creation of a new treatment area to house our new Neuro Day Rehab Program which opened recently in the Fall 2014. The new neuro rehab gym is almost complete—it is just awaiting some equipment.
• Upgrades to our Outside Bistro area and the surrounding landscaping.
