“On behalf of our entire family, we would like to say “thank you” to the Crane’s Mill Health Center for all your great care and wonderful support that you provide to our mom over the past two months. When we first admitted our mom to Crane’s Mill, we felt so hopeless, but as the days and weeks passed, we realized that she was in the best hands and it gave us all hope and put us at ease. It is because of each and every one of you that mom’s recovery was so successful. Your facility always makes us feel so welcomed and treated us like family. We are so grateful to each of you and we will definitely miss all of our friends at the Crane’s Mill. Thank you again.”

“My beautiful mother and friend passed away in the early morning hours of Sunday, December 4, 2016. She was not at her home, nor mine. She was at her other home, Crane’s Mill.
Over the past year and a half, whenever Mom was hospitalized and needed physical and /or occupational therapy, she knew that Crane’s Mill was the place that would help her get back onto her feet, and become her independent self again. When Mom was living her last days on this earth, we had hospice care for her in the exact same room and bed that was previously hers. There was no discomfort or agitation because Crane’s Mill always kept her comfortable and safe.
There is not enough I can say about the medical care that Mom received at Crane’s Mill. Whenever I needed answers or help, they were always there to assist. Davisha Patel, the physician’s assistant, ALWAYS went above and beyond to help all of her patients and their families. She made them all feel special and safe. Davisha would visit my mom daily to explain as simply as possible whatever questions she might have had, as well as to encourage her in every way. She was a daily dose of that “special medicine” that mom needed, and I must admit that I needed too! She truly cared and it shone in everything that she did.
I will be eternally grateful to everyone at Crane’s Mill for making those difficult times less difficult and easier to bear for me and my entire family.”

A Verona resident recently needed rehab in our Sub-Acute Rehab department. We are proud to share this letter letter he sent to us after his stay.
“I found the following employees particularly outstanding: Devisha Patel, physician assistant; Laurel Fastow, social worker; Rose, Rosa, Terry and especially Cathleen, all wonderful nurses; Pierre, Carmelita and Selwin, all nursing assistants; and Pat from dietary and her entire kitchen staff. They were all great.
I also want to thank Michael Maykish and his rehab staff on the way they helped me during my stay at Crane’s Mill, especially Nino and Jigigha. I also want to make note of Ajshe, Rose, Narse, and all of the wonderful housekeeping and laundry ladies. What a great place.
Mercy Gonzalez, Administrator, you have a wonderful team.”
