Hannah Duston Healthcare Center

I want to thank you, Melanie and your entire staff for the exceptional care you provided my mother (Katherine) during her stay at Hannah Duston. My mother who is 94 years old was very apprehensive about going to a rehab facility; however your staff managed to put her at ease and get her back on her feet in a relatively short period of time. She is still telling everyone she meets what a wonderful experience she had at Hannah Duston.
