My name is Bill Abbott and my background is forty-one years in health care. I ran hospitals for twenty-five years and I recruited health care professionals for sixteen.
I live here in Pomfret and recently had an opportunity to visit Westview Health Care Center for rehab and I was absolutely staggered and amazed. It is amazing to me to see that the hospital, the orthopedic physicians, the outpatient physical therapy and Westview have managed to come together in a coordinated program. This was unheard of 25 years ago and I hope that everyone realizes that this is a very special development in Northeastern Connecticut. When I hear people may choose to go elsewhere for knee replacement rehabilitation I have to ask why. This is a fantastic development for Windham County and Northeastern Connecticut.
One of the things that really interested and impressed me was the quality of Westview's staff. They are competent, caring and compassionate and if I were still in the business of hiring people of those professions, I wouldn't hesitate to hire any one of the staff I met in the ten days that I was there. This is about the highest compliment I could possibly give.
For rehab services of an orthopedic nature I would first look at Westview. I don't need to go to Hartford. I don't need to go to New Haven. I don't need to go to Worcester. . . the care is here and it's as good as you will ever find. So much more convenient, if you want to see your family while they are in recovery, it is a lot easier to get to Westview than it is to go out of the area.
Westview Health Care Center is a 103-bed skilled nursing inpatient facility, which includes a distinct and self-contained 28-bed subacute short-term rehabilitation unit and an Outpatient Rehabilitation and Aquatic Center, both dedicated to providing quality health care services. Along with garnering a perfect five star overall rating found on Medicare.gov Westview is proud to have received such accolades as US News and World Report America’s Best, Consumer Reports Top 10 Connecticut Nursing Facility rating and Health Grades 5-Star Top Ranking.
