Our patients and clients experience our compassion every day.  

"Our nurse, Elizabeth, did such a nice job.  My husband, Walter, was a little nervous having someone else besides me help. She was wonderful, so kind and gentle with him, and wouldn't even let me help - she did it all. It was so nice."
