Port Healthcare Center

Whittier Health Network

Whittier Health Network would like to thank our health care workers for the sacrifices they have made every day, and especially during the pandemic. 

Their dedication to providing exceptional care for our patients makes all the difference. These are challenging times to say the least, and as an organization, we are adjusting every day. Our staff and our patients' safety is always our top concern and priority. As a group, we have closely monitored our use of PPE and have shifted our supplies throughout the organization to ensure each staff member in every facility is properly equipped during all shifts. Whittier continues to closely follow the guidelines provided by the CDC, CMS and the Massachusetts DPH to ensure the safety of our residents and staff.

We view every member on our team as heroes and have awarded hero pay to all clinical and non-clinical staff throughout the network. Partial funding for hero pay is granted by state funds that are highly regulated. In instances where we were not allotted enough funds, we have taken steps to support our staff internally with funding and compensation to ensure appropriate staffing. As the executive board, our top priority was keeping our staff employed, as many other companies across the state have had to furlough or lay off some of their staff members.

If any staff member has questions or concerns, please reach out to your facility administrator directly. We always welcome team members’ suggestions and feedback.
